Hello everyone, I am new to the boards and new to Fibromyalgia. My pain started in my knees when I was 12y/o and I just attributed it to "bad knees" for 20 years, but in September of 07 the pain was so bad in my legs I could barely walk somedays'.I went to the doctor and was referred to a rheumatologist in January. I was diagnosed in February of this year and have been on a roller coaster of pain and emotions ever since. I have been doing a lot of reading and am finally beginning to understand about FMS & what is wrong with me. But nothing is helping me or giving advice on how to deal with my boss, co workers and the decision to continue to suffer thru work or just put in my notice. Twelve weeks ago my Fibro got so bad I was unable to bath or dress myself because my arms hurt so bad. Unfortunately I had to leave work and go on Short term disability so I have been out of work for 3 months. I am supposed to go back to work on the 23rd of this month and have no idea how or what to ask for to accommodate my return to the workforce. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. My doctor asked me to write the letter stating the accommodations I would need to return to work and my brain doesn't seem to be working very well these days so my husband is doing most of the grunt work on writing the letter. But he doesn't really understand what is going on with me himself so if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. ON A DIFFERENT NOTE How do I get my husband to understand what I feel like and am going thru on a daily basis?
