I am working now, but on STD and thinking of doing something else that fibro does not get in the way of and pays the same. Also I have read that fibromyalgia does not get worse. My symptoms started about a year and a half ago and seems to have gotten worse on some days. Maybe I am experiencing a worse flare. This is what will prevent me from doing my current job. So what else is there?
I'm a Case Manager working for DWP, every day is difficult with being sat down but I had an O/H assessment done so I can get up for a walk every 40 minutes, have a specialised chair, and the best is a roller bar mouse so I don't have to grip a standard mouse all day. Plus I'm not expected to do as much work as my colleagues but I have been able to keep up so far. By the time it gets to Friday it's tough but luckily everyone is really lovely at work. Then Saturday is spent mostly asleep and feeling beaten but I'm grateful I can manage to work full time. ☺️
I'm going to PT, to exercise slow in pool this wk, I'll try anything offered to improve lifestyle
