Looking for #Work and these are some sites that might help

In my efforts to job hunt I have been looking at some old job sites. It took me a while to sift though the crap and even longer to find anything useful to me as a Canadian. In case you are looking for something similar to work from home I am listing them here for you:

  1. Rat Race Rebellion Is an excellent and broad list of of places to check out. Not so much for Canadian mind you but still, this would be the first place to go.
  2. Also a decent list of places to check out.
  3. Clickworker  a company that pays for quick easy jobs that you can do in your spare time. Basically in addition to other work.
  4. Pajama Daze always has some interesting ideas on there to look through. 
  5. ProBlogger For blogging work
  6. Appen Butler Hill , Leapforce and Lionbridge - are web evaluator sites. Decent pay and interesting work. Long evaluation process for them though.
  7. Alpine Access - join a network of call work from home jobs. You set up a profile and they assign call work that is suitable for you. Could be cold calling, telemarketing or taking orders or customer service by the sounds of it. But they pay salary with benefits. 

So that is what I have found so far with all my digging around. There are smaller gigs. Where you get emails when they come up, but obviously not much income from them. Or others like crowd-sourcing, which have potential for side income.

Signs the pain is getting the best of you

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat
__ Hoarseness
__ Tender or swollen lymph nodes (glands), especiall…

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 

I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
