hello i start my pain management group next tuesday for my fribro, scatica and chronic fatigue. Has any body been to this one on London? If so any tips or advice. I am getting anxious about it as it as i am still not quite sure what to expect. It will take me about 1 to 2 hours to get there and back again on public transport. When i went for the assessment I was so exhasted from the journey I fell asleep through most of it. I was so embarassed. I work full time and it has taken over 2 years to get to on the pain management...mainly because my employer would not let me go.(it took 2 doctors, two occupational health and to hospital consultants for them to beleive fibro exist and that i have it) They finally are letting me go but are taking the three weeks programme (begrudgingly) as sick leave so bang goes my sick record again!! and they want to review my improvements once i return.....no pressure then!!
Just feel that it is an upward struggle to do anything around my health these days. Im sure im not the only one that has experienced this ith their employer. I truly beleive for some people if your not on the floor drag yourself around writhing in pain you can't be disabled or unwell....not that i know anybody disabled that actually does that. ....sorry for the rant. I am suffering with a bad cold and at work.
