Thriving in the Workplace with Autoimmune Disease is the first book ever to educate individuals specifically with an autoimmune disease on their legal and disability rights in the workplace. The book was born out of author Holly Bertone’s personal and painful experience and lack of resources available specifically for individuals with autoimmune diseases. She walks you through the basics of navigating FMLA, EEO, reasonable accommodations, working with your boss, and then provides much-needed resources to help you find that critical balance between taking care of your health and managing your symptoms at work. Having an autoimmune condition or any other kind of invisible illness can be isolating. You may look and act totally fine on the outside, but you feel like your insides are slowly killing you and all you ever want to do is crawl under the covers and go to sleep. It’s difficult enough for your family and spouse to understand what you are going through. It’s especially difficult in the workplace when your employer can’t “see” your condition and doesn’t understand why you are asking for flexibility or accommodations. You feel like no one understands. You feel like you have no voice. This book is not going to tell you to give up and become a victim. The mission of this book is to empower you with knowledge so that you can rise above your illness and challenges and thrive both at home and in the workplace.
Thriving in the Workplace with Autoimmune Disease is an essential, informative read for anybody that suffers from this condition. The author of the book Holly J. Bertone has written a factual account of your rights in the workplace which will be a great tool and a learning device for all those that live with the condition. So if you or anybody know somebody that lives with this condition, then I would recommend that you read this book!
Autoimmune conditions are on the rise and so, this book has come at the perfect time for all those that need help with the ins and outs of legal and disability rights in the workplace. I admire Holly J. Bertone for writing this book and informing her readers about this condition. I admire how this book empowers its readers with an immense amount of knowledge that will aid people with this situation to thrive in the workplace!
The author of this book, Holly J. Bertone has written a fantastic book that is informative as well as comprehensive. With these kinds of books, there is always a risk that you can get bombarded with a ton of information at once, but Bertone writes her book so wonderfully so that you are never bombarded with information. It is an accessible book to read with clear chapters and sections that are all very informative. Bertone is a talented writer who adores helping and informing people, and this shines right of the page.
As well as Bertone informing the reader of legal disability rights, she also discusses the autoimmune condition and how it is a misunderstood condition. She highlights that it can be very debilitating and that was great to read because she shows the harsh realities of living with such a disease and this is important for her to highlight to her readers. It sheds light and makes readers understand more, and that is very important indeed.
To conclude my thoughts on Thriving in the Workplace, I would say if you are living with an autoimmune condition or know somebody who is, then buy this book! It is written with compassion and ease and provides some great solutions for people who live with this challenging disorder. This excellent book gets Five Stars from me!
