By self managing and controlling daily stress, most people with fibro can do almost anything they choose. A good first step is to discuss your fibro with your boss and co-workers for them to have a better picture of what fibromyalgia entails. Ask your boss if you can take rest periods during bad days. A midday map is very effective and you can come with a cot for this purpose. Employers should allow periodic rest periods for sufferers to reorient and also provide memory aids like reschedulers and organizers. Of ultimate importance is for employers to reduce job stress and minimise distractions.
