Thanks so much all of you for the replys and encouragement about me telling my doctor I felt I did not think I could work any longer. You helped give me some confidence, which I realy needed.
So even though it was only his second time seeing me since my sweet lady doctor moved, (one reason I was so nervous) And get this, he has not any experience treating fibro. So i decided to help him out and printed 5 pages all about fibromyalgia from the American College of Rheumatology. Had no idea how he would respond.... but was hoping and praying for him to be receptive, and he was. He smiled, took it, and looked through it, then prescribed me an antidepressant from the med list for fibro, which was Effexor. Hoping it helps.
I recapped for him all the symptoms I'm dealing with, and then told him with all I'm going thru physically, and emotionally I do not think I could sustain a full or even parttime job right now, and asked him what he thought, and he said, I would have to agree! Huge sigh of relief!! Unfortunately he also said he will be leaving in 2 weeks. He's the third doctor I've had there in 1 year. I think it will all be fine, because the local SSDI here has been calling me, and emailing me to get my paper work in so they can start on my case. Is that weird or what!?
So I am thru with the application, and will submit it tonight, and they will have a good report from this doctor. Phew, talk about stress. I'm exhausted from it all.
One more thing, I've been waiting to get an appointment to see a Rheumatolagist. They called and gave DH my appt. Not till March 16, 1011. Only 7 months away, so I guess they only have one here and he's really busy.
Again, thanks so much for the prayers and support, it helps more than words can say.
Blessings, and hugs, Debbie
