I cancelled my work today because of a flare. I already cut down my hours. I feel so useless, lazy, and non-reliable lately. how may of you work with fibro and how do you manage?

Hi, I work 36 hours per week with my fibromyalgia. it is definitely tough, but with help from my family, fysio therapy, someone that helps me with cleaning my house, it is manageable. and of course I have bad days, but luckily also good ones! Recently I was not able to travel due to my fibro, so I had to work from home. it made me realise that participating in work is so important for your self esteem and feeling useful. Staying occupied helps me deal with my disease!
