Life With Lupus

Part time job


#1

Well I have been working part time 28 hours a week since Sept 22 minus the week I was in the hospital because of my mental issues. Gotta say I am proud of myself because I pushed through my fears and I didn't give up. My second and third day of working 6 hours made the pain in my back, legs and feet 10 times worse. I was hurting so bad when I got home all I could do was lay in the bed and cry. But things have gotten better and I can manage the pain, Thank God. I haven't worked in 12 years so it has been a challenge and I keep pushing through my barriers

This is great ! What do you do ? This gives me hope that maybe I too will be able to do it . :slight_smile:

I'm not sure about your financial situation, but are you sure you want to push your body this far..now perhaps it will get better and I'm really hoping it does for you, but going home to bed crying doesn't sound like the perfect solution to the end of a work day. Please take care of yourself and be honest about your limitations to your body with this condition. Lupus seems like such an unpredictable condition from time to time...warm, but gentle hugs.
