I am really struggling with this. At what point do you apply for disability? I'm 48, was dxed 6 years ago with fibro, have been in this job for fourteen years. Office, government (city level), me and another girl are in the office. Enjoy my job most days but I am so tired and get so stressed out. I am sure I am not much fun to work with because I get so grouchy. And I used to be such a nice person, really. I would be eligible and could probably get a government disability award. I just dont want to feel like a failure and I know so many of you still work and make yourself work. I just dont have an answer. My fibro doctor has mentioned it in the past but he suffers from fibro fog as well and forgets he mentioned it, he forgot to write it down. Anyhow, wanted to get your opinions. You guys are the best and have helped me so much in just the short time I have been a part of this site. So, do I suck it up and march forward or should I start thinking about slowing down and trying to enjoy what quality of life I can salvage.
