Ok, So I have been working at my job for the last 6+ years, and have Intermittent FMLA. Some co-workers have witnessed my first public insulin reaction at work (where they had to call the paramedics), so these who witnessed it, take it much more seriously. However, even though I've had Intermittent FMLA for the last few years, I have now been told that I can no longer check my sugars at my desk-because it is "unsanitary". I don't throw away my used strips in the trash can; I put them back in my One Touch Ultra Smart testing case, and discard when I get home. I don't think that testing my sugars at my desk is anymore unsanitary than blowing your nose at your desk, and leaving the rags in the trash can. I even have a Sharps Container at my desk (which is totally allowed). But I have also made it known that if I am running into more serious problems, then I will NOT leave the building to do this, I will do what I need to do-at my desk-to save my life. Having to leave the floor/building is a bit inconvenient. Sometimes when I get downstairs, my sugar is low, then have to waste more energy to go back upstairs to get the snack I didn't know I needed.
Can they tell me this is not allowed? I would think that this is in someway discriminatory?
