encouragement. I have only been a member of this board for a short time (so happy to have found it!) and the degree of disability for each of us seems to vary. I am not able to work full time, my brain is shot, no memory. The stress of trying to work caused such panic attacks and feelings of failure for the mistakes I was making. I do have good days when the pain is manageable and I always overdo and it takes me days to recover. My friends and family do not see anything but a smile pasted on my face. My husband knows that I hurt but I do not complain. The depression over not being the person I was is sometimes overwhelming. I am only able to participate in life with the use of pain pills. I know that this is not a fatal condition but it feels fatal to me. HOW do you all keep on going?? When will we have some answers as to why we have contracted this?? What caused it??? Please throw some hints my way on ways you cope. Thank you for listening.
