Hello there! I know that feeling all to well. I had to give up a job that I loved because it was too physically demanding for me. Not sure what physical toll your job is taking on you but maybe you can find something to do from home (just an idea). I really do hope you feel better. Like you, I am also mourning the person I used to be. I was always nonstop and now it seems like I need to ask my body permission to move a muscle. ((HUGS))

Hi Myszka73, After 10 years of work I had to quit my job then I hired a Fibro lawyer and was put on SSI Thank God because I don't know how else my husband and 5 children would have made it. If you don't win your case the first time keep trying the lawyers don't recieve any money unless you win your case. I won mine on the second try.
Good-luck
