I just talked to my doctor on the phone about going back to work parttime to see if I could tolerate it, and she is letting me work 16 hrs a week until I feel like doing more. She is going to let me start the 7th of April. I was so excited and happy. I call my boyfriend who is a truck driver and told him and he just about bit my head off! Instead of being happy for me that I achieved this great step, he was mad because I was not going to work the full 37 and a half hours that I did before I got this disease. He told me 16 hrs wasn't worth it and that I shouldnt work any at all. Then he wanted me to start working right away. I know he doesnt really support me with this disease and I know he can really be a jerk, but come on, get mad at me cause I wont work a full schedule like he wants? I don't think he gives a hoot about anything I want anyway. Every time I am in pain, he actually says that I should go to a nursing home and get over it. He says he is joking when he says it. I am sorry that I am going on and on with this, but he really hurt my feelings. Should I be hurt like this or am I just too sensative? I got so upset that my pain is worse than it was. I guess I just wanted to vent and I knew that I could post this and you would listen. Thank you!!
