Does anyone have ideas on good easy going jobs? As I'm only 22 I'd like to work but I want to take it slow. What are some jobs that have been or are easy in your experience? Thanks! Much appreciated!
work at a job that is inspyering sorry about the spelling . It will help with your Fribo hugs sweety
I used to work in a family jewellers which was a nice wee easy job. U could av a stool on the shop floor & never to busy apart from Christmas time. I had previously thought of a job in macmillan...sitting with people but my health has detriorated so not fit for that either now. Wot abot a sales rep for some drug company etc. Get ya mixing with different people. Xx
I spent 9 years as an Army pilot and 16+ years in a corporate executive role but had to quit due to my chronic pain flares. I am now working part time as a consultant for Rodan & Fields from home. Most marketing work is through social media or phone calls or just talking to people. Many of my team members are all over the US so we conference for training and support. This is a great career for anyone, but especially for those of us that need to work when we feel well but slow down when needed. We just released a new product called Lash Boost and open in Australia in a few months. I can give you more info if needed. We don't market or solicit on these pain support sites- I may have pushed the boundaries a bit here but your question is a really good one. Reliability in the workplace is difficult when you hurt to the point that you can't even lift your head off the pillow. Finding a job with a generous sick leave policy is tough and sometimes it takes years with a company to earn enough vacation and sick time that accommodates the ups & downs of fibro. So many of us struggle with finding and keeping jobs or have a job, but wait too long to request accommodations that may keep us in the workplace longer. My heart goes out to you that you have fibro at such a young age. I hope others have good career ideas for you too.
I'm a Security Guard on third shift. Alittle walking is all, just stay awake. It's nice because there's not to much foot traffic on my shift so it's quite and when my anxiety is high, I don't have to sociolize that much.
