At what point do you say you can’t work anymore.

At what point do you say you can’t work anymore.

I’m 31 father of 4 I work all day my wife works all night. I’m to the point that my long flare ups are taking away from my day to say life at work and home. I work a very physical job and I used my hands all day. Just wondering what everyone else’s opinion and how you manage to live your life with flare ups that come out of no where and last for an undetermined amount of time.

Roy you will know when it is time. I changed jobs to help me with mine, just so I could stay somewhat active. When I needed a cane to help me with my balance that is when I knew it was time for disability. I still work a couple of hours a week to get me out of the house. Good luck

Hows it going Brad, I lost alot of time last year from work. IT was very difficult. You have to be strong and stay on top of your doctors. Get in with the right doctor who understands your disease (I was not for over year and struggled, having knees drained almost weekly). I just stuck threw it until the doctors were able to get on a good regime, now my flare ups happen maybe less than once a month and with prednisone i can get them to go away quickly. It was def a learning curve for me, challenged me both mentally and physically. Good Luck
