What do you guys do for a living?? Student? Work? Neither?....and how does you work with the illness or illnesses you have?? I am a nurse. Not working currently because I'm trying to pass my licensing exam for the US but hopefully soon!!! So I'm at home all day everyday...eating sleeping..occasionally studying.

      I am a student nurse right now! I’m in the first semester out of four. With my ADHD, a lot of the time I just don’t sleep because I need to get all my work done but I just don’t have the energy sometimes. It is REALLY hard! But I’m getting through it.

      I had just finished my RN when I got sick. I’ve mostly been a SAHM since I got sick but I’ve done some freelance paralegal work for my brother. I never know how I’m gonna feel so I can’t manage a full time job. My kids still need quite a bit of support too so thankfully I can stay home

      I have not worked since 2019 when I went out on medical leave, lost my job and then I was diagnosed. I'm looking for a part time work from home job.🙏

      I work as a cancer researcher! I find it’s very flexible as long as you get the work done 😊 Best of luck with your exam! 💕 🙌

      I work an office job but have been working from home since the start of the pandemic. Being at home is amazing for my mental health, but has not been good for my physical health. I still hope to continue to work from home permanently however. It suits my autism and anxiety so much more.

      I’m a full time college student but I also work part time at an office on campus. I still struggle with my mental illnesses when it comes to doing school/work, and I’m always figuring out what I need to do to manage them, but adhd meds have helped a ton when it comes to doing work but I do (rarely now) take days off when my mental health gets really bad. Before my general chronic pain hit, I always had back pain but I could manage a customer service job. Now with fibro tho I can’t do physical labor so I’m glad I have a job where I work at the computer, and my employers are understanding when I have to postpone some filing because of pain. They’re also pretty chill when I have to take days off on a flare up or change my schedule when I have doctors appointments. I also manage with accommodations from my university! overall, i manage by learning when to take breaks, changing my life to be as accommodating as I can make it with the tools I have, and honestly by some pure luck.

      I’m a therapist. I was working at a community mental health agency, but have now stepped back and am doing online therapy and may be starting a practice sometime this year, if my health allows…

      I rely on disability/social security and my husband's job. I am almost 32 and I was going to school in the medical field as well. However my options got more and more limited the worse my conditions went on. Wanted to be a lab tech to MRI tech to billing/coding. But right now my days are reserved for doctor's appointments and I'm just hoping to get my worst symptoms under control and maybe I could go back to school but I'll probably get worse as I age

      Work in a warehouse , before I was diagnosed it was alot harder. To my boss I was okay ,but went I got on my meds my production is amazing but everyone has to ask if I'm okay,because now I'm trying to make boundaries and everyone believes or things I'm sad or something's wrong.
