I am retired now - and feel lucky to be able to retire at such a young age; 56. I still feel stressed and think about work a lot and it still seems like I'm on vacation and will have to go back to an accumulation of issues. Maybe I'll relax eventually! At least I'm able to get more rest now, and as funny as it might sound - exercise. I think in time I will do a lot better now that I'm retired. My SCS is still working really well; still getting about 90% relief in my neck. But, I have a lot of pain in my joints, my hands, legs, feet, and I feel bad all over (FMS muscle aches) a lot of the time. I'm starting a new med: Sevella (Malniciprin) and have heard good things about it. I hope it works.
Good luck to all who are struggling with pain and still trying to work - I did that for almost five years. I know how hard it is and my heart goes out to you.
