Just wondering if you guys have continued to work after diagnosis? I was diagnosed in early 2016 and fatigue has gradually gotten more and more of a grip on me. Over the last month or two my legs and ankles ache 24 hours a day. There is NO relief. My job is quite stressful (usually the people more than the tasks) but since diagnosis I find myself thinking that stupid tasks and petty debates at work are really the least of my problems and I have regular visions of myself just walking out. I commute to work, get up at 6, travel for an hour and a half, work for the day and then travel another hour and a half home. At that stage, I’m ready for bed. I’m not fit to boil an egg most days.
Did you all continue to work? If so, how do you cope? If you gave it up, at what point did you decide you couldn’t do it any more? And finally, what are the financial support systems like for PwMS unable to work?
