Fibromyalgia Disability Q&A

Living with Fibromyalgia Disability

  • Why I Chose Disability
    I don't have to tell those of you with Fibromyalgia how it takes away or at least changes life as you knew it. I NEVER thought at my age or any age I'd need to go on Social Security Disability.
  • Fibromyalgia and Pain
    I have not worked for 7 years.  I am in pain everyday. I have been turned down by social security disability....
  • Going on 25 years with Fibromyalgia and am on disability
    I had to quit my job after 11 years because of medical problems from the fibromyalgia and am currently on social security disability.
  • Where is the compassion in healthcare?
    Read on for responses to this question, like this one, "I am a neurological nurse practitioner who is now 100% disabled with fibromyalgia and arthritis.  I truly have seen both sides."
  • Can Chronic Pain be Prevented?
    Research has shown that fear-avoidance is related to chronic pain, and often chronic disability. It is a potent predictor of self-reported disability.
