I was an elementary teacher before the vm. I haven't returned to work since. At this time I'm have a lot of joint pain but what really scares me is how easily I get upset and how impatient I've become with my own children. When I get frustrated I can't concentrate and it's just a cycle. I get comments about how I've changed. I used to be an easy going person and now I'm moody. I'm scared of going back to work and getting upset with the students. I don't know if it has to do with vm but I'm not the same person I use to be.
