I tried to work the first two years I was chronic but it was very hard. I was suppose to be working full time and my hours were very flexable like 20 hours this week, 0 next, 40 next, 15, 5, 25, 30, 5, 35, 15, 20, 40. I was not a reliable or dependable employee. I needed time off for dr. apts (neurology, physical therapy (neck and sholder pain from headaches), dr. apts. for pain mainagement to get narcotics and discuss er trips and to discuss depression and get antidepressents, see phyciatrist for depression). I have not found a preventative that works and my headaches are in the daytime. So for me to concentrate and think and do what needed to be done became impossible. Just last year I quit working because I just could no longer function at work or home and depression overwelmed me to wear i couldn't even add and subtract my checkbook and I had been a computer programmer for accounting departments for years. So I shouldn't be math dumb. I just couldnt' think. I spent most of this last year in deep depression and fighting the urge from commiting suicide. I have fought the fight and hung in there. I have applied for perminent dissability and should be hearing from them any day to if I am accepted or not. I had talked to the woman on the phone that decides the case a couple weeks ago and she made it sound like they would be ruleing in my favor. Time will tell.
