Hello all hope we are doing not too bad,
just to find out if anyone has trouble working, I have worked as a chef for the past twenty years,except up until over a year ago.
I have not worked since and have made various attempts to go back part time, but have not been able to as i have lots of trouble with my ankles,wrists,fingers,and back, and when you work as a chef there is a lot of standing involved and using your hands.
i am really not coping without money, which is having a big effect on my well being, I am currently on jobseekers allowance, the job centre are of no help at all, and still expect me to work as a chef, while i really do think i should be retraining to do something else.
if anyone has any advice i would be very grateful, really dont know where to turn to or ask for advice.
cheers all and take care James
