“I can’t work when I’m in pain.” My client’s (we’ll call him X) words stopped me in my tracks. He meant what he said. But the problem is that he lives with pain about 75% of his waking hours. X has neurogenic pain and neither medication nor alternative therapies are helping. So how will he keep working?
As you probably know, I’m committed to keeping people employed — or self-employed — rather than on disability because I haven’t seen any cases where not working is a good solution for long. I’m delighted that I could share my thoughts on the blog, how to cope with pain. Read the top 6 reasons why I think working is good for your health.
But – what about X? He’s a regional sales manager for a life insurance company and he’s thinking about applying for long term disability. He’s not doing his job well and he knows it. What would you do? What would you advise?
