I was told in 2015 that I shouldn’t work in my condition and I haven’t worked since. However I’m getting glimmers of hope that I might’ve found a path back to being active again… (new team of doctors). Anyone else have to drastically change their career and how do you figure it out?I keep trying self help but they keep asking what do you love , what did you like as a child and all of my answers I cannot do so it’s like starting all over… :/
I had to change my career path to the administrative side of mental health/education after years of schooling, degrees and experience in hands on education and behaviorally therapy. It has done wonders to have the ability to be mobile when I can and need to but has a stationary baseline for work has been so helpful- allows my brain to work even when my body doesn’t! I feel your pain, had to take medical leave from my dream job after 2 years. My whole life changed, and I felt defeated but now I work another dream job- in the same field but more administrative side with direct in-field work at much smaller intervals of time! I am able to work full time again without flares! There is hope!! It’s all an adjustment period. You got this!
I’m struggling because I have major brain fog and was in the administrative side of things when I needed to step back; I was in HR. Corporate is just way to demanding and then add the brian fog I just honestly don’t know how to pivot. If it was just energy I could figure it out, but brain fog is so hard to control and contend with.
