Hello everyone...I have been away for a while, I have had quite a few episodes of chronic pain...but what can I do? I just face everyday as I can. I am just glad that I am alive today. Yesterday I went to the Job/Employment center here and the person in charge told me to go to Vocational Rehab,and then after I explained to her I lost my job due to costochondritis, not able to lift any more than 10 lbs, she said basically that there is not much hope for me to find a job....I did not let it ruin my day. I am going to look up to the sky and meditate in the other good things that surround me today. Any advice will be truly appreciated. Has anyone had an experience similar to that??? thanks for listening.
