How many of us survivors have returned to work? How many are planning to return soon?
How do I find the confidence to tell a perspective employer that I am capable of a day of work, when I haven’t had an opportunity to prove it to myself?
I can walk for 30 minutes. Is that proof that I can stand for 8 hours and toss 30 pound boxes around?
I was fired from my most recent job the moment they found out I have cancer. I don’t want to go through that again. I know I don’t have to tell them what is going on with me but it feels like it’s obvious. I’m very thin and hairless.
I have 12 years experience as a machinist. I always had trouble finding work as a female machinist. It’s not going to be easier as a cancer survivor.
I really did fail a physical capacity test when I had a tumer in me.
Thoughts? Has anyone had trouble finding work? Has anyone gone back to work only to discover they aren’t able to do the things they once did? Does anyone know of a workout routine that simulates a day of work?
I’ve tried to volunteer but have run into problems. Mostly covid.
I’ll stop babbling now. I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
