I have thought about this for a while now. I know that I cannot work outside of home. I can't stay on computers that long because of my back and shoulders. But, the main reason I can't work is because of the fibro fog. I can't make my brain function long enough to think about any duties I would have to do at work. I forget to do things and when I have fibro fog it fells like I'm in a drem state anyways. Kind of like you know there but it feels like your not. I just don't understand why it is so hard to get disability from what I have heard. The doctors I have seen say that is not related to fibro but many people here said they feel the same way. If that is the case, how would you even prove that you cannot function mentally if doctors say that it doesn't come from fibro? I help my husband at home but I can only do so much considering it is computer work and my neck, back, and shoulders feel like there on fire after about 30 minutes. I have been thinking about filing for disability but I have been told I probably won't be able to get it. I've been told the only people who get disability with fibro are ones who have other ailments along with fibro.
