I am very, very lucky (and I appreciate it) that I work from home - I only go in to work once a week for a couple of hours (so they remember what I look like!) I work in the motor trade as a computer and marketing manager. My bosses are extremely sympathetic - especially after I collapsed on one of them during a cluster attack -he thought I was having a stoke. They did comment on the odd hours that I log on though, eg 4am! I explained that during a cycle if I'm awake and pain free I can work and then if I get an attack during the day I just take my meds and take half an hour off. Working from home they also get me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year - so I don't actually take sick leave because I'm at home anyway. Hope you find some satisfaction.
PFD - Linda
