What Are Some Of Your Jobs?

What Are Some Of Your Jobs?

I am going to school for early education, and I was told recently that it might not be the best thing for me due to my weak immune system and fibromyalgia. I didn't think much of it but now I am curious to what other people think. What are some of your jobs? Are you comfortable while working? Do you work at all?

I no longer can work but miss my job still after twelve years!! I worked there for twenty-one years so they were like my second family Good luck with what you decide and I hope you can get many years in before this terrible disease takes over. I believe it gets progressively worse as time goes on so I hope this helps you out a bit, to add this into your equation!

I quit a 40 hour week job that I loved due to my FM. I used to be exhausted just getting ready for work. Once home I was blessed to find a job answering phones from home. I'm still working but I'm in control. Only work 24 hours a week by choice. I still have days where having my headset on is unbearable. My worst flare ups cause me to call off.

Is your immune thing a separate to fibro issue? I don't believe Fibro affects our immunity directly, but rather our stress does.. I would be more concerned about how you can minimise your stress in the job. I work from home because then I can completely control my environment, but I am also a hermit by nature... so it works for my anxiety too. But if you are social, then find a job that you feel very comfortable with and are not being stressed out a lot.

I worked as a customer rep for a utility for 31 yrs. Just took early retirement. I could no longer sit at a computer and type for 8 hrs a day. Could no longer take phone calls, as I would get confused too easily. I had a hard time learning new things on the computer. I've have fibro for almost 20 yrs. When I was younger I took the pain in stride. If it's something you really want and think you can do, go for you dream before you can't.

I work as a substitute and due pre-k through 8th grade. I've gone in on my bad days and good I would say stay away from pre-k and Kindergarden cause they are still learning to cover coughs and blow noses but I find that it's ok even if I'm having a rough day. Though if it's a bad day I go home and definitely rest. I recommend extra vitamin c but I like being with the kids and even thought of changing my major. Just understand that sometimes it's just going to be a bad day but there will be some pretty great ones two
