Yesterday, I talked to our facilities manager at work about simply bringing my home laptop into work and working from different spots in the building to get away from the nasty lighting situation and distracting office...so we agreed that would be a good plan and now I have my laptop with me and will probably kick that off at some point today (because in this northern hemi that I live in, it is 11AM and not incredibly bright outside).
This morning, the coworker who needs the light the most brought two lamps in and requested that two more be brought to our office.
Apparently even though we can't all agree on lighting, we CAN all agree to try to be proactive about addressing the situation. Sweet!
But I cannot tell a lie: I am mortified. I'm embarrassed. I don't like asking people to revolve around me and I don't even know what to say. My anxiety level is hovering right about mid-chest level.
