I ended up having to quite my full time job because the fatigue was just overpowering me and the stress really didn't help my pain. I had a hard time accepting that fact, but now I can do more freelance or temp gigs that are better off for my physical and mental health in the long run.
When I first started having symptoms, I was working a simple third shift job. It was a job through a temp agency. Unfortunately due to the fatigue, pain, and uncertainty in regards to my abilities, I had to voluntarily leave the position. At the time, we weren’t sure what was going on or when or if my condition would improve.
