How do you give up a job you love, taking care of your family and all of the normal things in life to a disease from Hades? I have tried to hold on to my normal life for as long as I could now it is getting to the point that I have to get someone to drive me to work because the brain fog is so so bad. I am pretty much useless most of the time I am at work and my family is wanting me to take my short term disabilty. I am tired of fighting to hold on to my job and the normal things in life. How do you let go and give in to the disease? I am a very independent person and do not want to have to depend on anyone. I hate making these sacrafices to this disease. It feels like it is killing my independence. If it was not for my two kids needing me I would probably not have given up driving. My family knows that laying a guilt trip on me about my kids is the one thing they can use to make me do what they want. Any advice on how to deal with this would be great.
