Stress

Sep 17, 2015 5:47 PM

So is everyone in more fibromyalgia pain when really stressed? I sure am today. Been out on disability for 6 months but have to go back, so I don't loss benifits. I'm not ready. My job is very physical at times which means I will be heavily medicated . Which I do not like. I need to find a new,less physical job. But very hard to find with limited work experience. ..ahhhh

Kimberly, I'm sorry. I was in your shoes in 2010. Ended up needing surgery and quit, because I couldn't expect them to hold my post in a 3 person depot for a year, which suppose to be my recuperation time. Ends up my health hopped on board a runaway train and I've never returned to work.

Maybe your employer can help place you in a less demanding post for a bit. You'll be in my prayers that a door will open elsewhere. 🙏🌼
