I've hit a crossroads...
I want to work, but I don't know if I can handle it.
I'm supposed to go to a job interview next week. It involves working with 3s and 4s. The work day will start at 7:20am. The drive is an hour one way.
I'll be working under fluorescent lighting, going outside for an hour at noon, stooping, bending, picking up things, and worrying with a bunch of babies.
I'm scared the stress will trigger major flares for me.
As it stands right now I have to sleep at least 10 hours every night. When I wake up I'm stiff and terribly foggy. It takes a good hour to get functional. I'm prone to getting pain attacks that nearly cripple me. Just recently I could barely walk for two days because of an inflammed ankle.
I'm planning on laying my cards on the table with the interviewer and see if I can modify my duties. If they can't then I'll continue collecting my UI and wait for my LTD to get approved. Sigh.......
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, Degenerative Disk and Facet Disease, and Allergies
When life throws you lemons....
Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
