Thriving in the WorkplaceThe #1 Amazon bestseller, Thriving in the Workplace with Autoimmune Disease is the first book ever to educate individuals specifically with 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.

Author Holly Bertone is a survivor of breast cancer and Hashimoto's who also suffers from an autoimmune disorder. While going through cancer treatments, people could see what she was going through and were willing to work with her. But autoimmune disorders are also known as "invisible illnesses" because on the surface you may look normal, despite suffering inside. And that easily leads to discrimination in the workplace.
