So, as you can tell by now I’m unemployed. I have been looking for a job for a while now and every time I try to work, my body betrays me.
I was training as a nurse and my Endometriosis flared up. I recently tried to train as a business administrator and my Fibro flared and I went to A&E twice.
It does have an impact on how you feel about yourself. It can make you feel useless and I have had many times that I have felt very useless, to the point where I am in tears but you can’t let it affect you all the time. You have to pick yourself up, brush yourself off and move on. Yes, it is difficult, when your body doesn’t work all of the time but you are only human.
It can be very difficult, holding a job, I have not had a job since I was diagnosed with Fibro, except for Avon but that is work from home and you only have to really work 3 to 4 days a month. But even then, I struggled to do deliveries and having the energy to collect the orders.
Life is so difficult, especially when you can’t work and can’t get anything to help with money. Thank goodness, my family are so helpful. I am hoping to have a job by November though, as Christmas is very expensive as you all know.
There are the occasional benefits of being at home all of the time. You can binge watch good TV programmes and you can get the housework done (on good days).
But don’t put yourself down for things you cant do! Compliment yourself on things you can do.
