Getting ousted from Work

Jul 13, 2015 2:12 PM

Hello I am new to the community and was just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in January although I've had chronic pain since 14 and I'm 36 now. I also have endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, IBS, PTSD, Major depressive disorder, ADHD, and chronic migraines as well as other fun things I'm forgetting at the moment. Due to all the fun my employer has decided to try to force me into disibility retirement. Had to pack up my desk in April and have been on leave since. Thanks to my union it was paid leave until recently. Now the stress has really started because I no longer have an income, but still technically have a job. Thankfully have some job leads and interviews coming up and grievances filed etc... Trying to not let the stress overwhelm my system and cause major flaring, but I have not been able to sleep well, if I sleep at all. Also lots of nightmares, terrors, and cold sweats. Very excited to have found a place to be able to track my pain and share my experiences with others.

Wynnbliss36 Welcome to our community family. As Weezie said, this is a great community filled with wonderful people who are always ready to lend an ear, give advice or just try to help you feel better and know you're never alone. You can rant and vent, laugh, cry and say whatever you need and you'll never be judged. We all may be here for different diseases but we all share the burden of having horrible and sometimes unmanageable pain. Just know that we are all no more than a keystroke away if you need help. I will keep you in my prayers and hope that you find the support and comfort you need with us. All the best to you.💕🙏🏻🌻

Wynnbliss36, welcome to our community family! It sounds like you've got lots of stress. Take it one day at a time, one step at a time, and hopefully you won't feel overwhelmed so much. Weezie and Always pretty much covered what we're all about. Unfortunately right now my mind isn't very clear. Just know we're all here for good or bad, happy or sad. Andi will add you to my prayer list! 🙏🌼
