I have you name it, all the bad symptoms of fibromyalgia & I'm not able to hold a full time job. I have had this for 24 years now. I also have severe depression because I have lost my purpose of raising 2 daughters that are adults now. How do fibromyalgia people make it financially by themselves?
I'm very fortunate to have my mom. I'm 21 and I have a great mom who believes me and doesn't push me too hard and understand when I cant do even the simplest tasks
I created my own job that I can do at my own pace and it's something I love. When the boss (me) says take a nap, I do lol
@A MyFibroTeam Member. I worked with fibromyalgia for 25 years. In and out of jobs. Trying to change up so my work was not so physical. But finally 3 1/2 years ago I just could not take it no more. I quit my job. But I am married and we have no kids at home. I got an attorney and 2 1/2 years later I had my day in court. 1 month later I was approved for disability and from that point on I got medical insurance and a little monthly income. If it wasn't for my husband working and us living in a very tight budget we probably would of lost everything. He still works and we are living a bit more comfortable right now. But if it wasn't for him, I would not be able to make it on my own. Wish you lots of luck. Sending Hugs and Prayers your way
I feel for you. My husband is only working 3 hours a week, tutoring. He's been unable to find work in 3 years. I only work 15 hours due to fibro. This illness has taken our standard of living. We are having to claim benefits (UK). Sending love and hugs your way. Xx
Thank God for my husband. We're down to his income right now and i thot that very hard as we have 2 grown kids w us and granddaughter some. I applied for disability and have hearing in march. Alot of ppl on here have waited years for disability. Its very difficult financially.
