I have really been struggling with increased pain and fatigue since before Thanksgiving. I only work 6.5 hours a day now, but even that has been hard. I took some vacation time for Christmas and I feel much better when I am home, which of course makes sense because I can manage my activities more. My question is this, who is on disability and is now functioning much nearer to normal? Here is the reason I am asking, I don't want to quit work, but I want to feel better. Is everyone who is on disability bed ridden, or are there some who greatly improve by not having to work? The picture in my head is if I am doing well when not at work, then disability is not an option, but is that true?
