Hi,

I was diagnosed with fibro as a late teenager but managed to get through university (with some adjustments like typing my exams instead of writing) and qualified as a primary school teacher. I lost my job for non-fibro reasons last year, but whilst working I did get very tired and achey, but the staff and children got used to the days I'd need my walking stick. I also contacted Access to Work who did an assessment which resulted in some specialist equipment for me (like a 'perching' chair - great for working with small peeps) and some adaptations that my workplace had to put in place too.

It's often really hard coping with work and fibro (well it was for me) but it helped me to be able to say "my legs really hurt but that's because...". Pain I can't reason out is always harder for me to cope with both physically and emotionally. Now I enjoy being a full-time mum, and I have also started a little business from some of my hobbies - but at least I can take a break when I need to since I'm boss ;)

Hi schroedinggers cat.... im on vitb and q10 now for 8 weeks, how much mgs do you take a day to feel the benefit at the mo both 30mg am and tea time, i'd be interested to know.... did ask lady at h and b but she was non committal, also take 1000 mgs of omega 3 and 5htp at night as well as prescription meds for pain, ibs and stomach, myself trying to stay off stronger stuff until the time comes, Look forward to hearing from you....

sorry getting to the point.....I work 20 hrs+ a week and have to care for a family member at home, im whacked some days,the fatigue :shock: ughh, usually an hour or two helps....feeling pretty yuk for weeks but I look at work as respite then Im worn out, I get dehydrated really quick which then causes more pain and bad heads..........but carry on the treadmill, me -time is travelling by public transport with my carry mug and kindle.....my it dos'nt take much to please this girl :lol:

Hi, just whatever the standard dose is in the ones you buy off the shelf in the supermarket, and just one of each first thing in the morning.
