Finland - Help dealing with Kela?

Currently I'm on sairauspäiväraha until the end of February. It was originally filed for panic disorder and severe depression. Both have gotten better, but now with my CFS diagnosis I'm not sure what to do after that since Kela won't recognise it. I'll talk to my therapist about this next week and see what she says, in the last letter Kela sent me (before I was diagnosed with CFS) they asked for a rehabilitation plan to be created and noted I'm about halfway through my limit on that particular benefit.
Does anyone who has dealt with Kela about this any ideas on what I should do next? Thanks in advance.
