Read your post and let me tell you, on one understands the idea of mood swings. I too, have been fired because of my not being so perky and sweet. People have no idea of the amount of pain you are in and more or less, they think you are joking about it. Try to tell them that it is a constant pain that does not go away, no matter how many pain killers you are on. Luckily, now anyway, I won't have to worry about jobs, because yeh....I just got approved for my disability. That is after losing everything I worked for over 40 years worth....oh well, life isn't always fun, but you survive. And to tell you that is the only thing when you have this, that you can do. Work every day just to survive.
