Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your troubles, and I truly hope that you find the answers that you seek.
Work is hard enough with Fibro, but work and school with fibro takes alot out of a person.
I can relate to your struggles as a full-time student and full-time worker. The best advise I can give you is to get into one of the adult learning programs at some of the colleges....the ones that have class once a week and in the evening. It is still condsidered Full-time so it should not effect your status for your insurance. It is in the evening so it gives you the whoel day to work yourself up to going. Get a lunch time or afternoon job to get your PT hours in...that way you can use the morning hours to get your muscles and mind working for the day.
I gave up Lyrica because it was contributing to my Fibro Fog (made me drowsy). I prefer the pain to the Foggy feeling, especially when it comes to school.
Hang in there and DO NOT GIVE UP! You can do anything you set your mind to despite the joy of Fibro! Get your degree and become the Pharmacist you want to be. Fibro will just make getting there a bit more challenging but I hope that you are one of the success stories we get to read about.
You are stonger than Fibro and it can not take away your dreams!
Keep up the fight and I am proud of you for getting this far. I know it has been VERY challenging. You are clearly a determined person.
