I don't have a concrete answer for you. I changed jobs 3 times during the last year I worked, to decrease hours, to decrease the physical work I had to do and to decrease the mental stress. It didn't help me. I couldn't take my pain meds and work. Then the pain just got to be too much during a day and my mind hit the fibro fog which was dangerous in my job. I am on full disability now.
I know there are others here who do work. Hopefully they can give you some tips! What sort of work do you do?
I've done some volunteer work with disadvantaged youth. I can go on my good days and stay home on the bad ones. No heavy lifting and no one dies if I get foggy and can't remember something. (I was an RN)
I loved my job, but just couldn't do it safely anymore. The volunteer work has been such a blessing. I get way more than I give. I don't "have" to be somewhere at a certain time or every day. I can do one or two hours as I feel up to it. I can't stay home and be non-social, except for when the depression is hitting me hard, like now. My whole life has been geared to helping others and I just couldn't make it stop because my mind and body said I had to. Luckily, my husband has a good income so I can do this sort of work. Kudos to the rest of you who are continuing to work. I tend to fall a lot because of the nerve damage in my leg and when I am very tired, I fall more often. This is just the ticket for me.
