    Hello every body, I'm new to this site,, never tried one of these before... not sure if my user name is ok for this site ? I also suffer with FM CFS and much more,One day at a time for me.. I am working full time from home. Yea for me.. It's hard but I'm doing it,

    I was wondering how many more are able to work ?

    Is my user name ok ? or should I change it ? I take one day at a time, and really try to be positve, have to be.

    Any way just really wanted to say Hi :)

    Username is fine. I work retail and its really getting me down both physically and emotionally. All I do is get up go to work come home take care of disabled husband and go to bed. Day after day. I really shouldn't be at work but for another month or so I have to keep the insurance for us. Until the medicaid kicks in for my husband. Then all I need to do is worry about insurance for myself. Then I might start getting a paycheck! But I feel that my working days are coming to an end too, because they are really trying hard to get rid of me. I'm a liability-they already took my FMLA away, missed it by 22 hours. They cut hours on everyone who has a illness or has filled workers comp at my place of employment. Sorry, I ramble on so much...Welcome to the site..

    why would your user name not be OK?? I don't see anything wrong with it. Don't worry.

    Good for you that you can work! I know I would not be able to work full-time even at home. I have CFS and just living life puts me in bed with a flare or virus evey couple of weeks!

    this is a great place for support and information. Glad you are here.

    Hello,, thanks for the resp. I really appreciate it... Nice to be welcomed

    Glad my user name will be ok.. My husband was saying it did not sound like the positive me. LOL
    I was having a bad day when I created it.
    Just logging of from work for 2 hrs. ,, I do a shift from 4am -8 am and then again from 10 am - 2 pm
    it works pretty good for me. Thank Goodness

    Wow , I can relate . does seem like all I do is work, take care of husband, ( mine is in good health though ) and then go to bed... and start over the next day
    you really have your hands Full... I must say .. Props to you for doing what you are, you must be an awesome person with such a positive out look , Kudos'
    My best wishes for you and your husband

    Yes I work Full time also because of med insurance and of course the mortgage payment, Have not really looked very hard into disability yet.. figure I can do this for a few years I hope , even if I would get it .,, It would not be enough to pay all the bills and have Med insurance. so what are we to do . right !

    as you see I am a little long winded ... LOL

    I hope we can chat , I think talking to others with the similar circumstances may help cope... as I just don't have the time or energy to go out somewhere to support groups .

    thanks again for the welcome .... Hope today is a good day for you :)
