I decided after 7 months of being unemployed that maybe I am ready to return to work. Can I do it? I am not sure but I want to give it a try before I decide to file for disability. I was offered a position at a pediatricians office that I am very excited about. Contingent on passing the physical and drug screen. This has me worried. Can I even pass the physical and even though I have scripts for all my meds will this affect the outcome of me getting the job. I tried to not take my meds so I would not have a positive drug screen but I was unable to do it after day 2. Needless to say I am very worried of the outcome of the physical today. Should I have been upfront with the employer about all my surgeries? Had I done this I am sure they would not of offered the position. How many of the spineys out there have kept their issues secret? I am aware that all my issues will be discovered at the physical but will they tell the employer? I guess I will have my answers today at 1;30 but I am a nervous wreck about it.
