I'd like to hear when those of you finally threw in the towel and gave up your day job. I battled the decision 2 years ago when I went into a neverending flare, then I began LYRICA and I once again hung on for a while longer. Things were good for several months till.... ...the fatigue is just relentless. I make it thru work and home to couch and there till bedtime. I live for the weekend, where I............make it to the couch for the entire day. I still can't shop, clean, or just work outside or feel like going anywhere. ...now I"m experiencing arthritic pains and a new lower back/pelvic pain that is horrible and so painful I cried all last week and ended up leaving work in pain and missing. Now I'm back today and don't know how I'm expected to make it all day every day this week. It's like new complaints or symptoms piling up on me and I can't handle anymore, but we are just not financially set for me to leave work yet. I'm not sure I would benefit quitting, because I'd have more time to dwell on my pain and limitations. Here at work I can see others, talk with others and interact with the public. I can stay busy even tho I'm exhausted and grunt and grumble all day with every move I make! I am so confused. Just wanted to hear other stories of when they ended their career due to FM.
