Hello. Thanks in advance for any coaching you can lend. I completed chemo therapy on March 3rd, and while I'm recovering physically, my executive functioning skills haven't caught up. I'm missing deadlines and dropping the ball by overlooking a lot of small details necessary to executing my job well. How can I address this issue with my boss and HR? Where's the line between "still recovering" and "can no longer do my job adequately?" I want to be proactive about dealing with my side effects, but at the same time, I sense that my boss is losing her patience and frustrated with the mistakes. This makes me concerned about keeping my job. How much does ADA protect me? More so, how can I have a smart conversation with my boss or HR about this?
