I have just had my sixth spine surgery. Four cervical and two lumbar. I am 2 weeks post op and am thinking about calling it quits on work. At this point I cannot imagine working. I have always had the attitude that my spine issues will not get the best of me. As much as I hate to admit it I think my spine issues are winning. At what point did you decide it is time?
I am 47 and a single mother so this decision will cause tremendous financial hardship but i am starting to think it is time to file for ssd. I have not discussed this with my doctors yet but I believe they will be supportive in my decision. I would like to hear from others and how they knew it was time,
