Dana: My "quality of life" is extremely low. I don't like to go out in
public on bad days. I feel VERY self-consceintious (sp); like everybody is
wondering whats wrong w/her? If I do things around the house (laundry,
vacuuming, dusting,.etc.) it leaves me so tired & achy I don't want to move
at all. And, yes, there are days the pain can last 4 to 5 days (or longer).
I;ve lost three jobs since Aug. 98 due to my physical/emoptional problems.
I've even hjad an employer accuse me of holding back info re my pain, & that
if they'd known, thye wouldn't have given me the position. So, of course,
I'm depressed (to the max), feel useless & UNWANTED by employers. As they
say; "Between a rock & a hard place." I think that sums it up in a nutshell.
