Slada I don't know if in Canada if they have dissability for people who can't work but if they do you should try for that. My RSD is just about everywhere even in my stomach, plus I have spasms and I am on strong drugs so the judge here in USA said there is no way I could work. Because of this I get dissability each month. It's not much but it's better then nothing.

Good luck, Cindy

slada,

Canada does have disability for those of us who can't work.The pain level you are describing certainly makes you a good candidate.Be honest with your Dr. and yourself about the intensity of the pain.Only if it is well managed should you attempt going back to work, right now it isn't and you would be disappointed with the results of going back too soon. Working in chronic pain can trigger more health problems,as I learned when I resumed working with RSD.I had more frequent and longer lasting migraines,had higher levels of pain and often had to leave work early,call in sick, or try to work in tears. When I started having symptoms of osteoarthritis in my fingers,wrists,arms and hands, I knew it was time to leave work behind.This may not happen for you,but it is a possibility. You may just need more time for your Dr. to find the right meds and be able to go back in time.This is something you and your Dr. need to decide.Good luck, I hope this helps.

Take care and lots of hugs,

scorpioj

I agree with the others; start looking into disability. Here in the US they can give you the boot in 26 weeks. I have been on disability for 3 years now. Good luck.

slada,

I understand about wanting to work, it is hard to leave behind what has been such a big part of your life. I too wanted to keep working. The reality though, is I physically can't anymore.Counselling helps you to deal with the stress and depression it creates.Working is a part of our identity,but only a part.It is not who we are, it does not define us. We are so much more than our job and still have contributions to make.You just have to come to terms with it all and accept it,which is a process,easier said than done and a difficult challenge. It is a challenge however, that you can meet and conquer with time and support.We are here to help you to the best of our ability,find a supportive counsellor to help you sort through the emotions and make the right choice for you.

Warm,caring hugs,

scorpioj

Slada, please listen to the words of the others who have posted here - they say these things because they care and they know from experience.

Talk to your doctor. I don't know what kind of work you have been doing, but it sounds like you really enjoy it. With your doctor's approval that it won't harm you to try to work, maybe you can work part-time in the field that you have chosen. If not, then maybe volunteer work on a regular part-time basis.

It is hard to let go of working since we seem to get so much satisfaction from a job well done that we like to do. It has been 3 years since I was able to work,and only recently have I stopped feeling like this not-working is only temporary! I can't do what I did at work anymore, but now I challenge myself to do other things that I can do. And I do participate in a charity that I can do from home, when I feel well enough: Warm Up! America. I crochet afghans and donate them, knowing they will go to those who need them.

Try to stay positive - you may not do what you have always done, but you may learn new skills, make new friends & find a whole new world that might not have ever been an option before.

Hugs, Cat

I never see so much understanding and support and I can only say how happy I am to have you in my life.You my friends are talking from experience and this is what I need to hear,that I am not only one who is dealing with stress.

It's not easy to lose job specially when you know how much you love it,same like dear Cat and Scorpion tell me.I have to accept thighs about my life and you are right my friend!!!!!!!.......I have to find something in my life that will make me look into my future.I am planing maybe to take some extra credit and one day to become nurseSmile ....I am still not that old.....love you all

My arm is killing me and my husband was right and all of you just from doing cooking and washing dishes.At my work I sterilized and clean surgical instruments and trays are very heavy specially with our ortho instruments.

Sterilization cart are very heavy and I have to push them in and out and also organized in storage room.Job is wonderful but it is hard on arms too.
