Everyone is affected differently when they have CFS and/or FM, so I was just curious to see how many of us are able to hold down jobs. Over the last 16 years, I have tried several different types of jobs from grocery store manager, accounts receivable clerk, Administrative Specialist, to working at home through direct sales. I have not been able to maintain any of them.
My husband and I cannot afford for me not to work, but we can’t afford for me to attempt to get a job at this point either because it would just set my health back further and I would be missing at least 1 – 2 days of work a week. How long will a boss keep someone around with an attendance record like that?
I keep looking and knowing that there has to be something out there for those of us who cannot work – does anyone reading this have that answer?
