I've just registered to this site and read some of the heart-breaking posts here. I understand because my heart is broken, too. I don't know how to go on most days, just go through the basic motions of life. What on earth can I do?! I am a Christian woman who has had a difficult life, like so many others, but have always been able to keep faith until now. I still have faith, when I'm in my right mind, but these black depressions are eating my lunch! The combination of fibro-fog and the arm, shoulder and neck pain (I work in an accounting office) have caused me to not be able to do my job correctly, which has caused much stress which of course makes ALL symptoms much worse. As a result, the company moved me to a lower position with less stress but 1/3 less pay, which causes it's own brand of stress. How will I support myself? What will I do when I can't get out of bed? It was a blessing that my boss found another position for me at all, I ALMOST lost my job entirely. I would like to plan for my future (I am 49 years old, not much planning time left), would like to believe I HAVE a future.....have been more depressed than I ever thought possible-depressed enough to contemplate awful things.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a career field or ANYTHING I can do to support myself? I have no savings or retirement, and am finding it difficult to have hope.
