    or are you just getting all your ducks in a row (like me). I can apply August 13th once the STD ends. I know I will be fired at that point. Are you FM or CFS (or both)?

    Your doggie is sooooooooo cute.

    Thanks for checkin on me. It makes me feel good.

    No, I have not taken the step today. All I have done today is make calls...two disability attys that have not called back...a person from my state pension office that gave me a little more info...and got my doctors OK to pick up my records tomorrow.

    I think after talking to some attys., I will be able to decide if I am going to try to work OR take the plunge. I just cant imagine driving 45 miles a day again to work five days a week. Nevermind...use my brain . I have learned to LOVE my two naps a day.

    I will keep you posted if I learn anything from the attorneys I talk to.

    Thank you for the doggie compliment. She is PRINCESS and is my best therapy.

    PS. I have FMS ( although I suspect I also have CFS too)

    I am taking the plunge. There is just no way I can return to work.

    Take care

    I DO NOT THINK i can go back to work either. I have been feeling less stress and get more brust of energy but no where the amount it takes to be a paragelal. I will have to talk to my boss soon to see if there are options and help. I have tried for two weeks to reach several disability
    attys but have not found one that can handle all my issues, Pension, LTD and SSDI. I do not want to have to deal with two or three attorneys. I also have cousins visiting this week that will be a distraction from my finding an atty -my mission this week!

    Wish me luck and I wish the same to you.
