The last couple of years have been especially hard because of the fibro and migraines. Plus I broke my finger last year and can't bend it anymore, even after months of therapy. I'm very hesitant to start this. My husbands job could lose his job. Not sure what will happen to us if he loses his job. I haven't worked for 3 1/2yrs. and not sure if I could even work part time. I had 1 year of college back in the early 80's. I have been thinking about going back to school although instead my original plan of accounting, I would like to go for paralegal. Not sure how many of my credits will transfer from my previous college, so I could be repeating some courses. So I'm unsure if I can go back to college. Since it's been so long since I went to college I may need to take some college prep courses just to get back into the swing of things. It could take me 3 years to earn this degree. If I physically can't handle the load and have to drop out, I will be very disappointed. At the same time not sure even if physically I can handle the load, will I pass with the constant fibro fog. If at some point I try to go to college and fail, then do I file for SSDI, and how will this factor into any decision SS makes? I'm not getting any younger and can't wait another 5 years to make this decision. Any suggestions????????
