Hello, everyone. I am 26,have fibromyalgia, degenerative arthritis, degenerative disc disease just to name a few and I am in need of some support.I recently had been employed by a major retail company (I worked there for the past 4 years). This past January my health did a nose dive and my doctor took my off work. Since January I have gone to alot of doctors, had a ton of tests done, anything that I could think of to help improve my health so that I could return to work. My problem is that I have had doctors tell me to my face that I am too young to be in pain all the time or to have sleep problems so because of that they tell me to "learn to live with it". Another doctor told me "it's all in my head" and sent me to see a psychiatrist , who disagreed with the doctor assumtion that it was in my head and told me to find a new doctor. I have been on so many different medications over the past 8 years for my problems that the doctors are now telling me that there is nothing more they can give me. Because of my health and the way I have been treated by doctors I am constantly depressed for which I am now on medication for. I am having a really hard time with the depression because I am a newly wed and I feel like I am a failure as a wife. I don't always have the strenght to clean my house or make dinner for my husband. I feel like a failure because I am unable to bring an income into our home and my husband's income doesn't cover our living expenses. But one thing that I kept positive about since January was that I was on a fmla, so i still had my insurance and that my main doctor was on my side. He had been telling me that I can't go back to work and that he would help me to find a way to get some of my functional abilities back. Well,two weeks ago I had to get him to fix a mistake on some paperwork and the office manager informs me that in my doctors notes he states that I can do a sit down job and that there is no reason for me not to be working. This is all news to me because he has always told me that I can't work. Then yesterday I had to sign up for the annual enrollment for insurance at my job and couldn't do it from my home computer, so I called the company. I was informed that i had been terminated. So, now i have no insurance and no doctors who are willing to help me. I am completely lost right now and I don't knbow what to do. I am really tired of my health problems screwing up my life. Thanks for letting me vent a little bit of my frustrations.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
