I am just looking for other people's knowledge please.
As many of you know, I started my latest and worst ever flare up just over 3 years ago. Before the flare up, I was an avid walker and chose not to have a car for financial reasons and health reasons. When it all started, I relied on colleagues at work to give me a lift as some of my work places are 2 miles away. These lifts carried on for a year and as still no sign of a calm down I bought a car. As soon as my asthma was calm enough I began working at an agency in the holidays (I work term time) to fund my car as I really can't afford it on my single wage. I am single with a mortgage etc...
Fast forward to the present day. I am struggling right now, like others with the pollen and the weather and this year so far I haven't been well enough to work at the agency. I am already in the 3rd week of the summer hols. Are there any grants out there for people with variable conditions who need a car to get to work because of their condition. I really feel in a catch 22.
I am planning on seeing my GP in August to touch base regarding my asthma and am wondering if I should mention it to him, what do you think?
Edit: Just to add, I have had periods when I can walk for leisure (up to 5 miles on my best day) but I have to pick my day and ensure I carry very little in my rucksack. I have not returned to my pre-flare up level of asthma yet and am unable to walk to even the closest workplace with the weight of my work rucksack.
