Been a couple of bad months,
Started school last August and finished it this summer.
But it came at a cost working and studying.
Totally walked in to a wall and felt like s**t.
And the pain was on the scale from 1-10 a 10 most of the time.
My psychiatrist gave me the "you have to think of you speech " and all I could say good then you pay my bills and I can stay home from work and study or I can do this and work through it as if I dont have my degree I might get fired, she got quiet really quick.
But I did it and proud of myself for sticking to it and not giving up.
Just mad at coworkers that one never says she can work overtime (so I have to do it) and the other complaining over working 3 days , study one and off Fridays and here I've been working my ass of for a year with 4 days work and school (did it from home) and occasionally having Fridays of Cuz I'm the one always Beeing the good guy working extra even tho I have a four day schedule due to my fibromyalgia.
Sorry I'm whining but geez.
Yeah I know ppl are jerks just happy the rest of my coworkers understand me and tell me to slow down when they see i hardly can stand or get quiet.
Hmm what did I want with this Poat?🤔
Any who just letting you my awsome pain crew know I'm still in the loop and reading your posts and thinking of you.
Big but gentle hugs to you all.
Your the crew that keep me going ❤️❤️

I have been doing the same thing you are for tye past 3 years. I am a senior in college and i kill myself working or going to school 7 days a week and crying every night because of how much pain im in.
It is so great to hear that your coworler support you. Thats is a bleasing to hear. I work with a lot of people older than me and when i am in pain they just tell me to "wait until i am their age then i will kniw what real pain is." It is hard when coworkers do not understand how disabling fibromyalgia can be. I understand balancing work and cool is hard, but congratulations on being one of the strongest people in the world because living with an invisible illness and work and school is really difficult and you did it!
You are amazing!
