I just lost my job because of calls outs due to feeling like garbage and exhaustion. I really thought that they were understanding with my condition. Anyways, what helps you feel better or gets you through your work day?

Fibromyalgia (FM)

    I'm in your same position. I'm looking at work from home options, since it's so difficult to get any sort of support for a fibro diagnosis.

      Working from home really is the way to do it!

    Work from home is great. Or an easy office job. Being exhausted is really hard though. I just take it 30mins at a time. And try and keep pushing along

    i lost my first job due to the same thing, and also corporate found our about my "puke breaks" of which i would drop everything and run to the bathroom to puke from exhaustion or migraines, and then come back as if nothing happened lol. i'm at a better job now and i'm really liking it, but my absences are causing me to be unreliable again. i got my first write-up nearly two weeks ago :((
