I just wanted to add my 2 cents worth. I went to college at 48 and had fibro at the time but not the "official" dx. It was tough but doable if you pace yourself. I worked for several years after that until I just couldn't do it anymore. I wouldn't have missed the experience of college for anything or the experience of working in the field I had chosen. Only you know your capacity to deal with college and the work environment. Your choice of LPN is probably your love , but I wonder if it might be too physical? Perhaps you could look into all the aspects of the LPN field and maybe strive for some part of the field that gives you more of a chance to pace yourself? Good luck out there and enjoy school. Education is something that can NEVER be taken from you and adds so much to your life .
