Ok I've had FM for a loooong time but was just recently diagnosed. As some of you know, I'm also only 24. I'm a dental assistant, work LONG hours (10 hour days but with travel time it's more like 12 hours), and I work hard. I'm thrilled to be working at all in this economy, but seriously, I need a new career. You all know the FM symptoms and standing on my feet all day, running around like a nut, working on patients, and taking doctor's orders is very very tough and hard to handle. I just don't have it in me anymore it's exhausting and just not good for my health right now. My boss doesn't know I have FM. I can't cut down to part time because then I lose all the perks-401k, vacation, personal days, etc, plus I need the money badly. Even switching to a 9-5 typical dental office wouldn't be good for me because I really just can't do it anymore. The fine motor skills just hurt too much, the aches make it almost unbearable. Most days i can't even write by the end of the day, not to mention the fatigue! Are there any fibromyalgia friendly careers out there????
