Ms And On Disability
I am 42-I was dx 5/07 and had 1st major flare 9/10 which put me in the hospital for 5 days of IV steroids. I was out on FMLA and unable to return to work so my company terminated me. I had already applied for LTD which was approved last week. Since the flare in Sept. things have only gotten worse, esp. the past 3 weeks. My legs now are extremely weak and after about 10 minutes of standing my legs get shaky and my back starts to really hurt. I am currently trying to COBRA my benefits so I can contact the doc. I am scared and majorally depressed by my condition. Would love to hear other people's stories with this horrible disease.
