Worried and stuck
Posted: Tue Jul 10, 2018 5:06 pm
Hello - I am newly diagnosed and really struggling. I have been reading extensively about mind body connection and ms. I’ve come to believe that my ms was caused by job stress. I am a psychiatrist and don’t mean to offend anyone but the job is not right for me. The emotional rigors are too much especially now that I have ms and I have other issues with the work as well. The problem is I have lots of debt and two children. My husband is not in support of me quitting due to finances. I could retrain in another field but it would be at least a year before I could begin that and I worry if I will be able to withstand the physical stress of another residency with ms. Basically I feel hopeless and I am so fearful that continuing this work will make the md worse but I feel I have no other choice.
