I dont know how to do it, but I would like to share with u 2 photos that describe my pain really well. Others might relate to it, find it useful. And I am curious also…to hear from other people, especially those with constant painssss + working full time.
I have AS, Sjogren, psorias, migraines (rather well controlled with Botox) and neuropathic pain…am presently off work. I dont think my GP believes me. Its difficult to explain my situation here because of its complexity, but I’ve a feeling she is going to send me back to work before I am ready because she says “working distracts you from the pain” , I think she thinks I am depressed + THAT is my problem (not intending to yell here, just stressing the word “that”).
Saw psychyatrist, he says no.
I have the feeling she sees me as not motivated to go back to work, that I am lazy, too emotional. Yet my history is proof of exactly the opppiste.
It is very stressful thinking I will not have the time to land back firmly on my 2 feet before going back to work, even if I go back part-time at first.
So, is it a possibility to share a couple of photos here? If so, how?
Thanks 4 reading, looking forward to reading ur thoughts/answers.
