How Do People With Fibro Work?

How Do People With Fibro Work?

Hi Everyone :O)
How do people with fibro go to work? I am running out of money and need to go back to work. I don't see how I am going to do this. I am so tired. I already get very limited social security and I do not have a retirement. I feel like I can't be around people anymore. It's too tiring and draining. I am a well educated person but I have no confidence left, none at all.
Any suggestions?

I used to work full time as a early childhood teacher. When i was diagnosed i was so sick my dr said i needed to quit work and change my career. When i was ready to get back into work I did a few hours cleaning a week (which was a bad idea but the only job i could get that was a few hours). I cleaned at a workplace that helps children who have special needs, word got out that i was a qualified early childhood teacher and they offered me a Playroom Position. It has been awesome! I get to work with children and i work with 1 child at a time! 😊 I love my job and they are super supportive with my health. I work Mon, Wed and Fri so i can rest they other days (i do 3 hours paperwork at home on the tues). I work 23 hours a week, was going to try more but my occupational therapist didnt think that was a good idea for me.

I have had a great education and had three jobs on the go. Now l only manage four hours a day. My husband is very supportive and the money l earn pays for the food each week. I feel so disappointed sometimes as l loved my job and my self esteem has taken a huge hit.
