Reduced Work Hours Thanks to ME/CFS

I finally had to cut my work hours back to one to two days a week instead of the three that I was working.  I was only working 12 hours a week, but it was getting to be too much with all of my health issues, particularly the ME/CFS.   I talked to my boss and it wasn’t a problem to have my hours reduced.   This month marks my one-year anniversary since I went back out into the working world and I realized early on that even those few hours a week were more than my body could handle.  I almost gave my notice and quit but I’m not ready to throw in the towel yet.  I like having somewhere to go and the few hours I work gets me out of the house a little bit.  So we’ll see what happens with these new hours and hopefully I will be able to handle those.

Have a wonderful day everyone!  🙂  I’m not feeling well today so it’s a short post for the day.

  1. Hi Sandy As you know I have said before that many, about 75% on Lyme disease forum Eurolyme, were previously diagnosed with ME/CFS before finding they actually had Lyme Disease.

    On one post today I was amused to hear this definition and hope it brings a smile to your face, if you are having a rough time.

  3. Hi I’m 31 and Wa diagnosed last year. Although my symptoms started aalmost three years ago after my s
    son was born I feel like its been a lifetime. I have always been active but I can’t seem to get the energy to keep up with my kids schedule. I’m tired all the time and my kids are too young to have parent that isn’t involved. I’m not sure how much more I can handle.
