Hi. I’ve been Disabled for 20 years and am thinking of going back to shool online
Good for you! You should as long as brain fog isn’t too big of an obstacle. You shouldn’t let fibro hold you back from anything you want to do.
I know our bodies don’t agree, but we all have to live!
Thank you MarLena,
I’m very excited but kind of scared. My memory is terrible cause of my pain. I’m registering with the office of Disabilities just in case. I start June 25th. It’s an online school so I don’t have to worry about attendance.
Thank you for your support and good luck to you!
I just want to say kudos to you having the desire to go back to school! I am currently in college and will be graduating next May with a Bachelors in Social Work and a minor in Addictions. The interesting part is that my mom is in school with me and will be graduating with the same degree as me.
My mom was a stay at home mother for over twenty years but always dreamed of going back to school. She doesn’t have fibromyalgia but has similar chronic ailments that are just as discouraging and overwhelming at times. But let me tell you, the feeling of accomplishment is that much sweeter!
I want to encourage you to go for it and embrace the whole experience! It will be challenging at times but the end result is so worth it.
Nothing compares to that feeling of fulfillment.
Best of luck,
