I've had this desease for 6 years. My job was to drive to terminals and teach new employees the computer system. I could drive up to 600 miles a day to reach a terminal, then teach. In 2008 my husband of 33 years asked for a divorce. I quit my job of 34 years sold our house and I moved to my sister's home. I was in constant pain--the meds made it impossible to drive. I hoped the pain would go away so I could get another job-but I can't get a break. The pain makes it impossible to work. I've filed for SSDI, citing the depression, pain, the desease but I'm afraid that not many people know about it and the pain it causes. Has anyone won their case with this desease? I filed a month ago, and I know that it could take months. I have no health insurance so my GP is my only Dr. I've also just been dx'd for diabetes...I am really depressed with all that's happened the past 3 years.
