I will try to keep this short! Thank you to everyone who reads/replies to this!
I am 22 years old, married, and I work from home for my father's small family construction business.
I used to work in my dad's office, which was a 10 minute walk from my childhood home- not too taxing on my health. My husband and I lived two hours apart prior to getting married, so obviously I moved in with him once we did, and my dad wanted me to continue working his phone sales and quotes so we worked it out so that I could do it from my home. He means well, but he has his opinions and ideas on how to "cure" me, and doesn't understand or accept that I have an issue in my DNA that is causing a neurological problem, and there is no cure. My doctor diagnosed me with Fibro and possible lupus, but the fibro has been present since I was born. I've struggled with his "cures" most of highschool and etc. He means well- I know he just wants me to feel better- but lets just say that the last doctor he made me see prior to getting married turned into a nightmare where my body was starving itself, and I couldn't walk up the stairs without blacking out or being out of breath. My GP set all of that straight and I'm no longer on that idiot's diet and meds-- Thank God! But anyways, my father just informed me that he now wants me to take on a second additional job for his business on top of the 8-10 hour one I already have, and it is going to require even MORE attention and work than the one I'm doing currently. Now, I quite frankly don't think I can handle it. Now, normally, if my boss were anyone but my father, I could explain to him that I have a health condition and that I have limitations. But, I can't do that with him, because then he tries to force me into some new cure idea, and he's convinced each time that if i would just listen to him I would get better, but so far that has proved to be the opposite. So I can't use my health as a reason to get out of taking on this extra thing, but my health IS the reason. Also, he didn't give me much of a choice--just told me he needs me to do it, and there's nobody else who can/will in our office right now. I have to take an internet class/course to try and learn how to do this whole internet advertising program, and he doesn't realize how difficult just the ONE job is without adding a SECOND one. I'm going to *attempt* this for him, but if it takes my health down, I don't know what to do. If I can't work from home, I can't work- because of various reasons I wont get into, the most complicated one being that I cannot drive. I also do all the cooking, cleaning, laundry, taking care of pets, etc, and I definitely won't be able to do ANY of that if I'm in an office for 10 hours, 5 days a week. My husband works really long hours so he really doesn't have time to help me with housework--he still tries because he's a wonderful guy, but he's usually asleep almost as soon as he gets home. So I'm faced with quitting period, and not working at all- which would drive me nuts because I would feel like a leech towards my poor husband, and I would feel guilty ever buying anything (He doesn't care- that is my own issue), OR trying to find a more suitable job I can work from home. I just don't know what to do. I realize this is extremely long and if anyone does reply to it--God bless you!
