Does anyone with chronic pain/ symptoms have a stress-free relationship with school/ work? I have missed tons of school and my job this year and it’s not because I don’t want to go but because I can’t get out of bed in the morning because I’m in pain. If I choose to tough it out which anyone with this pain knows you can’t do that, I’ll experience complete blocks, and fog from my brain, nausea, migraines, dizziness, fatigue. You can’t win. I feel that a lot of my superiors think I just don’t care about it but I do and I have maintained a good schedules/great gpa and I know some people aren’t as lucky. What do you think?

Abdominal Distention

    Man, I feel you there! My boss always says to take my time and take my health seriously, but I always feel so guilty and stressed about it. So I guess I don’t really answer your question, but I’m in the same boat and you aren’t alone!

    I feel like I have such a hard time doing my school work, and am moving so slowly. I haven't been working for the last few months and I feel so guilty all the time.
