Finally had to admit I can no longer work

Finally I had to admit I can no longer work with my endo pain as in previous jobs I was let go through my illness which is so unfair especially as enjoyed my jobs I have had but I have to admit I cannot hold a job down through this. I couldn't take on a job as I also take liquid morphine which I can't drive when taking and also it makes me sleepy and with pain also, it would not work so I made the big decision at the moment with hospital appointments and maybe future lapaoscopy going on, I just don't know about what the future holds but at the moment my health is more important than working right now. I didn't want this illness to defeat me as I loved my work but since loosing my recent job through this, I have had time to think and I know I can't handle it now.

  • I'm sorry:(

    I was in IB in school this year and put into self paced so I would only go to school every once in a while, my teachers are getting kinda angry because I keep missing weeks of school anyway so I think even though I'm only 17 I might need to take a year off till my lap. I love school and barely see my friends. My doctors won't give me anything past NSAID's b/c they said they're too dangerous for my health b/c of my age and heart disease running in the family.

    I can give a few ideas for income from home, have you heard of etsy?

    You can make things like soap or candles and sell them on the site.

  • Hi Hannah,

    No Ive never heard of etsy until you mentioned it?

    Thanks

  • It's like eBay but you sell handmade goods on it:

    etsy.com

  • Thanks I might look into it. Sounds interesting as I need to something to take my mind off my pains.

  • Hello,

    I am in the exact same situation. I finally decided enough is enough and I have seen a specialist called Dr Ashwini Trehan. He specialises in endometriosis and does a surgury called radical excision. His reviews are amazing and I've got my surgury with him in 5 days.

    There is still hope out there for all of us, he is expensive but nothing is too expensive to lead a normal life again.

    I hope things go well for you :)

  • Thanks. I see my gynecologist on the 12/10/16 so I will see what they are going to do with me. I'm excited but getting nervous at what they will do.

    I hope things goes well for you too. :) Good Luck with your surgery. :)

    Let me know how you get on.
