due to the nature of fibromyalgia i've had quite a hard time staying employed over the past few years. currently i am working full-time, and i have a wonderful, compassionate boss who refuses to fire me! but- i am only ever there half the time, due to pain, of course, and fatigue, or the way i'm responding to a new med, etc, etc and i feel it unfair to stay under her employment when i am truly not capable of doing the work.. i know it's my right to be employed and i am blessed to have her understanding but i can't shake the bad feeling everytime i call in sick. there is also the matter of the dwindling paycheck every couple of weeks. what do all of you do for work? & how do you manage work with FMS? i'd like to hear all of your input. ideally, i'd prefer to work from home, but it is not realistic at this point in time. this issue has become a huge burden & stress and i believe it's making the pain that much worse, but i don't know how to address it, or what possible options there are out there.. any help is appreciated, and by the looks of some other topics it would seem others may have similar problems.. ~ kate.
