I had to quit my Job in 2008. I had the baddest AF stage and after 6 months 'working' with this stage of AF I had to quit because I couldn't do anything. I had was experiencing the 'living dead' part of AF with ALL the most common symptoms.
I quit my Job, and had no income (every month I had to pay some shit, but I live home with my parents so that was a medium risk).
From then I had ONE goal. Study till I found out wat it was (I didn't know yet). After I had found some interesting protocol and applied it (budwig diet, that was a kind of last resort at the moment) - with lots study and rest - the extreme fog was lifting and I was able to do some little jobs from home (IT related, with computers/programming etc).
From this point I could 'sit down', earn a very little money (enough), and start my healing path.
Nowadays I can work between 24 and 32 Hrs if I have a relative 'good' week (mixed at office and at home, i've been lucky with that).
I think next year (2011) I can work from 32 up to 38 Hrs.
