To those of you who work, how do you handle needing time off when it comes to Chronic Pain issues?
I am in the process of debating if taking some time off would help or make it worse. I am sure that physically it would help me but I think the emotional ramifications might be worse in the end.I am lucky enough to have a boss that is very understanding so that is not much of a worry right now but eventually my missing work will become an issue.
I am just very lost and confused right now. My pain levels are getting out of control and while the doc did rx me stronger pain meds, I am afraid to take them. (silly huh?) so I suffer and try to deal with it the best I can.
