I really don't know how much longer I can do it. I have been working since 2 weeks post ACDF c 5-6. The first couple weeks a few hours per day. Now I can easily work 9-10. Today I left at lunch. I just couldn't do it. I am in front of a computer for the most part of my day. I get up & around but it doesn't help. I put a sign on the door saying "CLOSED". I am the only one in the office. The Dr. will be there tomorrow (I work for an Optometrist). What am I to do? I guess the gal in his other office could close up & work for me.
He has finally placed an ad for help. We have gone through 2 people since August. I am lost. I don't know what to do. I can't not work bacause I have bills to pay. I can't work all day as it is too painful, even with my meds.
I see P/M for the first time on Monday. Maybe he will give me some answers. I thought about inquiring about disability but do not know how to do that or if I can even qualify.
On top of all the pain the last thing we need is to stress out over our jobs.
Sorry. I just really don't feel good today.
