Well, I have been on med leave since Oct 08 when the fibro became more than I could bear. It has stalked me all my adult life. Every job I've ever had, I've had to quit at some point and get well (6 month - 2 years) and then go back and try again. I'm 51 years old and I just don't want to repeat the cycle again - I saw a job about 45 miles north of here that would be teaching and would pay $40K. I don't know, of course, if I would get hired, but if I did I'm scared to try. For one thing, there goes my disability policy coverage, but they haven't told me yet if they'll cover me or for how long. And I just opened the frig door and I tell you, that will put the fear in you when there's a couple of yogurts and some milk. I keep trying to talk to my 3 kids and husband about moving to a smaller home and no one wants to hear it -- Of course, I'd rather not move, either. It's a royal pain, but I mean what can we do? My husband is 60 and just got on at Wal-Mart part-time and my ex is taking me to court March 3 to try for visitation with our youngest girl after DHR found that he molested the other 2. We moved to another nearby state and he is saying I should have had his permission! My employer is "sending some papers about my leave" and I imagine that will be the heave-ho. Is this life or some kind of nightmare?
