I'm a 33 year old male who has suffered from Chronic daily headaches since i was 25/26.
This condition has so far wrecked what was a very promising career; i've been clinging on at work desperately for the last few years. I perform well when i'm 'ok' but not able to function when not, this often involves 1-2 weeks at home whilst i go through the mill with the various headache types i suffer from.
Abortive and preventative medication have little or no effect.
I've recently been exploring the work environment i work in as the trigger, and cause, of my condition. The headaches started when I first started work in an air conditioned, open plan, noisy office - and is the only thing i can really put my finger on.
My employer has engaged occ health and i recently saw their doctor; it has been suggested that i work a 50/50 split of office and home work environment; the idea being that i can control my home environment.
They are reluctant to explore this to say the least; has, or does, anybody else work from home with a similar condition or disability? How has it worked out for you?
Any help with the home working would be great :-)
Yours, a fellow 'graineur'
