    • Hello Fab40 Friends!

      With the Pittsburgh, PA weather becoming very cold, wet & damp, my fibromyalgia and low back condition have become much more painful.  Each day is a challenge in trying to function with normal daily living.  

      My husband & I have recently encountered added stress relating to his job loss, lack of medical insurance and lack of income.  Both my husband & I have been looking for work.  

      Earlier this week, I had an interview for a beauty position that pays extremely well.  Tomorrow, at 2 PM, I will be going on my 2nd interview for the job.  

      My concern is that I am physically & emotionally not feeling well, enduring chronic pain and I am uncertain if I am even physically able to maintain a steady job?

      Occasionally, I have done freelance work as a Makeup Artist, but it is not steady or dependable work.  I have not worked a steady job for over 1 1/2 years, due to chronic pain with fibromyalgia and 4 bulging discs.  

      The job does consist of standing for long periods, working in the beauty industry with the public, I would be responsible for lifting, bending  and carrying boxes of beauty products and maintain the inventory.  

      Yes, we most certainly do need the extra income, but in all honesty, I do NOT want to aggravate my medical conditions by experiencing an increase in my pain level.

      Please pray for God to provide clarity, direction and wisdom about the job opportunity.  

      God Bless,
