Please tell me I can continue with my career. i have recently been diagnosed with FM after many many years of being inconstant pain and not being diagnosed. I am a working mother with four children and am feeling totally overwhelmed by this condition. I love my job and my kids but I am struggling to function normally. Having always been an active person, my inabilty to 'cope' is overwhelming and dabiltiating. not being able to sleep night after night is making me incompetent to do my job. I am currently trying to complete my masters and the the 'fibrofog' is robbing me of my ability to think. I feel that my life is no longer mine and fibro is slowly taking away everything I love. I want to work intil the day I die but I am not coping with the demands that work puts on me. I guess I would like to know that my fibro will be able to mananged and I can live a relatively normal life which includes career. is this unrealistic? i may need a reality check at this point I am not sure.
