Hi, I'm Tami, age 52-3/4 I have been having symptoms, some alike and some different, from all of you for many years now. Was told back in the 90's that I had chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. OK, WTF ever, but I don't believe your arms, neck, back, hands, legs, and feet get burning, tingling, shooting, stabbing pains and go numb with that diagnosis! I looked it up several times and couldn't find any of those symptoms. Fatigue and some muscle pain and stiffness, yea maybe, but not this BS!! Hoping I can get some answers and suggestions on what to do here because I'm totally clueless right now! I have no health insurance, no job, and no car. The car I was using to get to my previous jobs I got fired from now belongs to my bf's son. He just turned 16 and paid off what he owed on it so it's his now. My bf's income is too much to qualify for Medicaid, and I am unemployed. Have lost 3 jobs in the past year because I wasn't fast or efficient enough, I couldn't remember how to do most things had to be told over and over again and was ALWAYS dropping s*#t!! I'm getting sicker and more tired by the day because I don't feel like I can do anything anymore without getting fired!! My BF thinks I am just being lazy and don't want to work or do anything. Truth is, I want to work but I can't seem to find and keep a job!! I'm scared of what the future holds. If he makes me leave because I can't find a job soon, then I have no place else to go. No family or friends, just my adult son, age 26. He lives 30 miles away, doesn't drive or own a car and is on the autistic spectrum. And even though he works full time his wages are low and he is struggling to take care of himself. So there's no way he can take care of me. I love and miss him with all my heart, but neither one of us is in a financial position to help each other out. Okay, I'm done rambling and blubbering here, just know it feels nice to finally be able to let it out and have people listen without being told to shut up and suck it up!! Thanks for listening!!
