Well, I guess I'm not sure then. If it's not in Wikipedia......

The new movie of Mr. Peabody and Sherman is hysterical.  It is on Netflix now.  There is a ton of adult humor in it.

Jim and I got talking about old cartoons last weekend. We watched Bugs Bunny, Transylvania 6-5000 ( the Hocus Pocus episode). I was crying I was laughing so hard! That would be a great matinee feature Anthony! Or the Marvin the Martian ones. Hilarious!

Stress from work, a boss that doesn't seem to care, and lifting trash and juices all day.

It's your choice if you want to leave your job or not. But the grass is not always greener on the other side.

Robin, I love those old cartoons to.

I was in a difficult situation. I loved my job, but it was indeed quite stressful. However, I chose not to leave my job because I didn't have a diagnosis as to what was going on at the time...even though my body was staging a full-on revolt.  Then, it simply "gave out". I didn't "give in" and quit - not by a looooong shot, but I really wish I had taken a good hard look at my situation before I lost the use of my eyes (temporarily), my legs and nearly died from multiple organ failure.  I should have listened to my body. So, that's what I'd advise: Listen to your body. It's not "giving in" if it's a matter of survival to change things up to make life better.

Sometimes, we have to "rearrange" our lives to get better and stay that way. While stress will never be eliminated, I know many people with lupus who have had to "adjust" their careers/jobs and/or change job/careers to keep from being in the spot I am in now with absolutely no choices.

I think there is a saying that if life gives you lemons you make lemon aid.

No one knows your situation better then you. But I think what Robin and I and others are trying to say is to many times we get new people on the forum asking questions about lupus and work and now that they have gotten their dx they pass go and go straight for disability. Disability does not pay a whole lot plus it can take 3 years to get approved. Some get approved faster others it takes awhile.

I had a very stressful job, commuted to work, have a special need child and another child, was on the PTA board, did cheerleading comp, little league etc and still worked.

My doctors for years tried to get me to go out on disability but I was in my 30's with a mortgage and a career I had to push forward.

But you have to do what is best for you. Just make sure what ever you decide that you have the support of your doctors because without their support you will not get approved.

I wish you the best of luck.

I guess you can call it fast food since they go in a line to order their food. The place is called Cafe Rio.

Why not apply for something different? [smile]
