When I was working, I had to back off from my pain meds and struggle through. Unfortunately, this eventually led to the loss of my job, even though what I was doing I could have done from home. But the pain mgmt doctor said I had a sedentary job abd there wasn't any reason I couldn't work. I still don't understand how he thought I was going to get there and back! Of course, I don't see him anymore and am still looking for a new job (5 mos. so far).
I don't know what will happen if I do find a job. If it is close by, maybe I can get there and then take my meds, I just don't know. Anytime I have to drive anywhere, I have to psyche myself up for it and as soon as I get home, it's back to the heating pads and pills.
