Exclamation Re: Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #6 ...

My meeting with Social Security (Psych Eval) is today. I'm pretty sure it will also involve the impact my physical health issues are having on my emotional health.

I'm a bit anxious because so much has gone wrong with my physical health that I'm afraid I'll pforget something important that needs to be discussed pertaining thereto.

On top of all that I'm still hurting right badly and when I'm hurting like this it's difficult to pfocus and concentrate on much else other than that.

So please keep me in your thoughts & prayers ...

Thanks!

Heart Re: Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #6 ...

Thank you @lizardlady!

I did make and take a list, but never even had to pull it out of my pocket.

We talked a pfew minutes about my physical health issue, how rapidly I've declined since the allergic reaction to the antibiotic in 2009, and the impact that all this has had on my mental health.

I told her it was quite devastating to lose my ability to do all the things I love including my job, walks at the botanical garden, fishing, etc. I also told her I worried where I'd be in another 3-5 years and how I'd hoped to be able to make it until I was 65 before I had to quit work, and that this definitely wasn't what I wanted nor how I had envisioned spending my "golden" years.

She was quite empathetic regarding my plight and stated that she'd do everything in her power to see that my claim gets approved.

It was nice to pfinally hear a professional emphatically state HOW COULD IT NOT ... Meaning there's no way someone can live in this kind of chronic physical pain & continued loss of pfunction and it not have an impact on their mental health.

So here's hoping I hear something here before too long.

I'll be sure to keep you posted and let you know as soon as I do.

Thanks Again!
