How do you know when it's time to stop working?
Thanks for taking the time to read my post , I am only 38 but I feel as though I can’t deal with the constant pain of having rheumatoid athritis and fibromyalgia any more I have had these conditions for around 15 years but feel like now I can’t cope any more I feel like my body is turning to concrete I struggle to do even the simplest of tasks now , I am working as a cleaner 20 hours a week in a busy supermarket I can’t keep it up much longer i only work 4 hours a day but by the time I finish I literally feel like I can’t take one more step or I will collapse with the pain , I don’t want to spend the rest of my life like this but I don’t know where to turn to , I feel like I have to give up work now for the sake of my health but I just dont know where to turn to and I feel like I would be giving up if I gave up working , has any one else had to give up work and when did you know it was time to do it x
