I am a brittle asthmatic, have been much of my 40 years, have a range of severe allergies and chronic pain because of Churg Strauss Syndrome, which currently is going through a good phase having had Chemo for it last year. This morning the long awaited letter from the DWP dropped through the door telling me I shall be assessed about my ability to return to work soon. Just recently I have discovered that where my asthma is concerned I am at the end of the line treatment wise, under a specialist hospital and they can do no more. Despite my health I am very independent, and manage to take my four legged pal for a gentle walk most days. I would love to work but know because of the various complications of having a complex array of health problems a potential employer would run a mile (wish I could). So why do I feel so guilty about being who I am?
