Hi, and welcome to the forum! Ooohhh, we have a lot of dog lovers on this forum...me included! I'm sure you will feel right at home.
I can't help you with the LTD through an employer. I'm on social security disability but I'm sure others will be along and can help you out.
You mentioned that you spent the day in bed. Well, that's about the worst thing you can do with fibro! You get stiff as a board and your pain increases. It is important to keep moving with fibro and incorporate some gentle stretches and gentle exercises in during the day. I walk and swim for my exercises and I feel so much better after doing that. Give it a try. I think that could help you. Pacing yourself helps a lot, too.
I'm so glad you found us and joined in. We have wonderful members that do love to help and we really do care about each other. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. I hope to hear more from you soon.
