I am new to this and only got diagnosed in March with Fibro. having been off my full time job since November. I am so frustrated at the fluctuations of the condition! I need to get back to work as I'm a single parent, but OH said I need to manage and pace myself better so I can sustain the return to work programme starting at 50% of my hours. , but I just don't know where to start with this! Any ideas? I've got a puppy (well he's a year old) just after I got diagnosed so that I make myself go for at least one walk everyday. i try to keep up with life, but can't do all that I want to do - and the IBS has kicked in big time which means I can't go far from a loo - or am terrified I've have an accident. As I've been off for so long money is getting very tight - are there any financial benefits that are known to people out there?
