How do you all decide when you need to either take a break from work or give it up completely?
I am really struggling at the moment - constantly exhausted and joint pain all over, numb legs and hand, headaches, and now my memory/thinking seems to be impaired too. I'm making loads of stupid mistakes at work which I'm really embarrassed about, plus taking about one day a week off for medical tests and appointments. I've only been in the job 3 months...
How did others decide that they couldn't do it anymore? Did you wait til your work pushed you, or did you quit before it got to that stage?
I realise of course lots of people keep working because financially they have no choice (I'm in that position), but equally I see lots of people have given up work because they physically can't do it anymore (think that's where I'm headed)..
Just want to know how others have coped with this dilemma? Have you been supported by a partner, moved in with parents, downsized house etc?
Thanks in advance X
