      I have been dealing with fibromyalgia since 2017 and I personally have had atleast 3 career changes since then maybe more. I currently work full time as a traffic controller, and I'm team leader for my crew. I know it might not be for everyone but it's the only job I've had that isn't too physically demanding or too stressful. I was studying nursing and paramedics when I got diagnosed, working in aged care. The boss basically said I was too much of a liability to stay in the health industry so I left and went back to gardens but I couldn't make that job last. For me being outside is what helps my symptoms. I still have my very bad day but I'm lucky I've got a good understanding crew and we all work together and I've got people helping when I get stuck. But really don't let this illness steal from you. I'm still riding horses and training horses and living life. Yes it's hell sometimes but don't let it steal anything from you. Go after your dreams you'll get there it just might take a little longer

      You may try to get a job where you can telecommute. Working from home on your own schedule is a really good idea, too. You could train as a proofreader or esl teacher. There are many work at home jobs available since covid hit. If you can't find any fairly quickly, you can always try to match through job service or voc rehab.

Some suggestions for jobs that could work with health issues include remote jobs like Amazon representatives, healthcare insurance jobs, or less technical jobs like data entry. Other options could be working in a local eye care center, a library, or a business that has a sit-down desk job. Tech jobs are also an option as they often offer remote work and flexible schedules. You could also consider online tutoring, writing subtitles, or copywriting from home.
