I have been working only p/t for the last 3 months. Today was my first day back f/t and I had to take 800mg of Ibeprophine before noon. I made it through the day but worry I may not be able to keep up. I have been off for 2 weeks for the Christmas break and have slept 12-13 hours a night and felt great, no meds, no naps. I even took a walk one day. I thought maybe the Elavil the dr. prescribed might actually be working. But then at work, the achy legs and flu like feeling started. When I worked f/t before I was miserable. P/T it was manageable, as long as I did absolutley nothing at night. Off completerly, I started to feel like me again. My family wants me to be normal so it is difficult to tell them my hesitations to working full-time. Any advice??
