Title: Disabled SAHD
Post by: MichaelFereguson on November 05, 2013, 03:19:45 AM
Hi my name is Mike. I know a lot of you guys know how hard it is being a stay at home dad! In the last few years iv had spinal fusion surgery been diagnosed with total spinal degeneration and fibromyalgia. On my best days I can hardly even get out of bed yet I still do 100% of the house work. I haven't had a day off in months I'm about to loose my mind! I NEED HELP ASAP!

Hey Mike and welcome to the site!

How do you do it?  What have you found that works to manage the pain and help you to get all the work done?  I know it must be painful every minute of every day.

What's your wife's/SO's attitude on your disability in regards to what you are doing around the house?

Welcome aboard.

I'm currently not taking any medication at this time because we just can't afford it. So every day I'm in mind blowing pain. How I get thru it I have no idea? Iv been suffering for over five years. Sad thing is my Drs are more worried about loosing their license than treating me like I should be! My wife works hard all day so I get to do everything around the house. I'm so sick of having to cope with my health because of bull crap Drs I'm at the point where I just want to give up!

Sorry to hear that about your doctors.  Maybe it's time to find another doctor that can help you.   Have you tried any chiropractors?
