I am now 29yrs old. I was diagnoses with fibromyalgia about 8 years ago. Back then I used to work 80 hours a week, and now I can't even complete 20hrs per week. I've had horrible exerbations, which caused me a marriage and many friends. I've been extremely over medicated in the past and finally found doctors who have reduced my medications, but I want to be med free. I feel like the meds just make me more foggy and I am still very depressed. I want to have a career or something that can support myself and my puppy. However, I don't know if I am simply chasing something that I can't have. I've recently attempted to titrate my meds, so that I would be hopefully less fatigued and able to work at least 20hrs per week. I've already missed time from work. I want a chance to do something with my life because I was diagnosed early in life. What should I do?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
