Meds that i am on :Methoxtrate, Prednisone, Folic acid, Generic Prevacid, Plaquenil, Hydrocodone, and Ibproufen. If u want exact doses let me know. Today isn't a bad day but not a good day eighter my feet feel like i have been on them for 8+ hours straight and I haven't been on them at all and my hands it really hurts to type. They are very stiff and sore. I will talk to everyone soon.
    Sorry i'm not home pain! and don't leave message I am not calling u back!

    I'm not in school cause for one I have student loans in default and I can't afford it. In order to get your pharmacy tech license you don't need to go to school. If you want to be board certified then you have to take an exam and pass it. I was doing a at home course until I wasn't able to afford it since i have been on disability. Tell your neice for me that I am very proud of her completeing her education in pharmacy. I am so glad that you found your niche in what you love to do. I was doing amazing at my job which was doing data entry and general office stuff, but with the company that I am employed with there is unlimited growth potential and that is one reason I am so depressed cause I want to work so bad and my body won't have it. Now if there was a way I could Telecommute to work then my doctor would let me work but unfortunally there isn't anything that I am able to do cause they aren't set up for that. I think I will send in the form in the next couple of weeks when I have the money just so that I do have my pharmacy tech license and that way if the doc does eventually let me go back to work then I might be able to work store side in the pharmacy part not the retail side. I love working with people the only thing is that I can't stand on my feet for long periods of time so that would have to be worked out. Again this at this point is just a pipe dream cause my last doc wanted me to start appling for SSI. I feel that if I do that then all i am is another person that wants to live off the government and that goes aginst all that I stand for. I know that is not true but its how i feel.
    God Bless you always,

    Ria, If the doctor wants you to go on SSI then maybe you should. You might just be on it temporarily. It's for people like you, that need it. Just think of it as time to make yourself well. Hope you have a good night and you will start feeling better soon.
    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

    Take Care,
    Becky

    hi maria,

    i truly understand your hesitency with SSI, but remember, you have worked so you have paid into the SSI system, therefore, you would be getting your own money back.

    you have earned this support, so i vote for following the drs. advice.
    Phyllis
