Hello everyone, 

How are you today? emoticon cute  

As you all know, some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia (the pain, stiffness, fatigue, etc.) can be especially hard to handle during a long workday.

Has fibromyalgia had an impact on your professional life? If so, in what way? How do you manage? Have you stopped working because of it?

Fibromyalgia and work: Do you still work? How do you manage?

@Courtney_J This all started for me in the middle of my Master's. I had to take a semester off and then set up special "disability status" so that I could handle the work load and turn in assignments later without penalty. It's been hard. I try to set myself a schedule and give myself time to recoup between activities.
