I have fibrofog forms, compitets and paperwork are my enemy. Sad because my highest paying job ever was computer systems analyst

I am in the same boat but unfortunately I haven't found any answers. I 'm scared daily about what will happen to me if I can no longer work. I just wanted to say you are not alone and keep moving.
