I have a midline birth defect that went through my pituitary gland. I have panhypopituitarism, which includes growth hormone deficiency and hypothyroidism.
Even though I'm on hormone replacement therapy, I still have chronic fatigue and pain. Most muscle pain and soreness.
I have been working in a factory for over 4 years. I'm required to work 12 days before I can have a day off, and usually work more than that. I also rotate shifts every 6 weeks.
Because I work in a factory, I'm required to wear steel toe shoes. What I do on a daily basis causes me so much pain that I can't do anything after work but rest. The last few weeks have been horrible. I've had no energy and have to rest after simple tasks, like getting dressed.
I decidedto quit my job. I haven't worked since Tuesday and for the first time in a long time I'm almost pain free. And I'm calm.
I may take this opportunity to see if I qualify for disability. But, am also looking to get back into accounting and an office setting
