I've been on disability for 6 months (I have FM, as well as some other medical issues). I've come to the depressing realization that I may never be able to work again. This is not a "for sure" thing, but I'm trying to prepare myself. For those of you who have not been able to return to work, how in the h*ll did you handle it? This is not just a rhetorical question. I'm really scared. Besides, "take a walk every day," or "read a good book," what else did you do? How did you handle no longer being a "meaningful member of society?" I mean, that's how I feel about it. I'm just so scared.
