Hi everyone-Well, as some of you might remember, I was fired from my job of 10 years in May, 2008, and haven't been able to find any work yet. I also have lupus and breast cancer (in remission). Anyway, I was fired because of memory and concentration problems, which I attributed to the "brain fog" that is a part of fibro. as well as lupus. I went to a psychologist to have neuro-cognative testing, so that I would have on paper that I had these problems because I was seeing a lawyer about my firing. Well, listen to this! When I got the report back, he stated that I had only minimal problems, due to meds, and nothing that should bother me. AND, that fibro is something that docs. use as a diagnosis when they don't know what is wrong (How long ago was that the way of thinking-I thought we were past that). And that the idea of fibro and lupus brain fog was just made up-there was no such thing. So I spent 3 days, thinking that I would be able to give this report to the lawyer. Now it is useless, because what it says basically is that I have no problems, let alone something that should affect my work. Now what should I do? I really don't want my former job to be able to get away with firing me because of my memory and concentration problems, but now I don't have anything from a doctor, backing me up. Any other ideas? I guess I am just going to have to give up. I only have a few more weeks of unemployment left, and I don't know how I will survive. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. God bless, and have a pain free day.
