I've 42 and after not working for about 4 years due to illness/depression I decided to go back and study. This week I learnt the place I've worked and volunteered at to get my required 260clinical hours will not be offering me work, not even part-time. And I know it's because of my fibro. The head nurse said "I need to know you're well enough to work when I roster you on". In my 2years I've only gone home sick twice because I was vomiting. I'm guttered...has anybody else felt fibro has disadvantaged them in a horrible way?
