I am at the point now where I am thankfully stabilized enough to consider really hitting it back to work hard, and return to school and finish my degree. I have figured out supplements that can keep me going, and the real linchpin for me now is sleep quality. If I can get that to be more consistent, then I'm pretty good to go for now. My biggest concern was that I have been out of "official" work since June. For at least four of those months since there was no way i could have been working full time, and the rest of the time was just too inconsistent to really look back and say anything definite. Needless to say, I am focusing on moving on. My previous Job was with a local school district, but it took me a bit to work up to consistent hours, and even then, it was more of a stepping stone job, so that's out of the picture. My biggest concern boils down to this: I have not been absolutely sick enough nor tested to have been diagnosed with CFS or Lyme via doctor. (I still don't really know whats going on here). I know that I have had some miserable times in the past six months and some better times. Given my situation, what is the best strategy for explaining to a potential employer why I was out of the job picture for that period of time, and how, in all reality, will it hurt my chances in the job search?
