Today is a hard day, pain-wise, but it is thankfully a little better than last night when it was extreme. I called in "sick" to work today, because there is just absolutely no way that I could go in to work today, feeling like i do, with such severe pain. I hate "lying" and telling my work that I'm sick, but really I am so afraid of the "stigma" and I am so afraid of being judged if others really knew that I have chronic pain. Would I be fired? Would I be looked down upon? There are many days that I do go in to work, when I have a flu or a stomache bug, or a terrible respiratory cold- because knowing myself and my chronic pain there will be days like today when I just am absolutely unable to go in to work. To me it is so much more bearable to work while "sick" with the flu, then when in severe pain like this, and so I trade off by going in to work when sick and staying home when in pain. I am getting to the point that it is harder and harder to work, though. Can anyone else relate? I am so afraid.
