Newly diagnosed...trouble with work..help??

Postby Darkskies91 » Wed Mar 30, 2016 4:29 pm

Hello all,

I have now officially been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and scoliosis (yay fun :/)

I currently am in work but it is an hour away from where I live and I find it almost impossible to get up and make the journey there, do an 8 hour day and the journey back without feeling dead in the evening.

Does anyone have any advice on what I might be able to do?
I'm trying to look for a job closer to home but it's hard to get interviews etc. I'm currently signed off from my current job as well but I now only have 2 weeks left to be signed off. After that I have to go back which I am dreading.

Any advice would be great

Thank you and speak soon :)

Hi, have you thought about going part time or flexible working at your current job, if its possible until you can find somewhere closer to home? You may be able to top up your income from tax credits, etc. Best wishes.
