For the past 6 months I've pretty much been a self-imposed prisoner in my home due to constant flare-ups. This has been a dark and difficult time as I had to leave my prior job because of it. Pain levels bearable for a few days then not , etc, etc, let to me fearing the flare-ups, they dictated my life and I became very depressed by this as I always enjoyed the line of work I was in. I started a job Monday gone on a full-time temporary contract (until mid to end of June). I'm really excited - not to the levels pre-pain, of course, I'm too tired and battling brain fog and all the other' goodies' we have to face like bad, sleepless nights but still having to get up an function. It's a short contract so I aim to practice pain management techniques to see if I can get through it, do a good job and maybe get some hope for the future if I can manage it!
Does anyone here have any experiences or advice about how they've coped with working? I'd be interested to see how it is working for other chronic pain sufferers. Thank you
