Okay, friends, I need some help. The last couple weeks at work have been very rough for me. I don't know how much more I am going to be able to work. The achiness, and flu like symptoms of fibromyalgia on a daily basis is taking a toll. My brain is not functioning correctly. I can't concentrate and alphabetize or get things done, no matter how hard I try. It's just not there. Once in a while something intelligent might come out of my mouth, and when that happens, I am like see it's still working. It's just not working right. The doctors call it fibro fog. I just feel stupid. I can be watching a tv show and it will go to commercial and I sit there the entire commercial trying to figure out what it was I was watching. Scary. Some days are better than others. I sat in the chair last night and not feeling sorry for myself just evaluating where I am. Everything hurt, my facial bones, my ankles, hands, fingers, neck, knees, behind, everything. I am not sure when you decide that you no longer can work. I have worked since I was fifteen, mostly two jobs. I can't quit. but think if I do lose this job that I would probably qualify for disability. How can you apply while you working? I dont think I can. Someone said you had to be unemployed for a year to actually qualify for benefits. Um how do you live? I am so confused. I have no family to care for me so thats out of the question. I do think I am going to ask my Dr. for something for pain, tylenol is just not cutting it. I am getting ready to hire a housekeeper to come in every two weeks and do some cleaning for me. Don't know how Im going to afford it but I am. Any suggestions about what to do?
