Ok, so this morning I wrote how I was on the verge of losing my job. This evening I received a hand delivered note, two sentences long saying I was unsuitable and unreliable. I've been at this job nearly three months. I've had one absence and had to leave early on another occasion. This is now my third job I've been asked to leave because of Endometriosis.
Just wondering what others have done when unable to work? Do I qualify for any disability benefits? I signed a petition to get Endometriosis on DLA a while back. But unsure if there is anything else. I was planning on moving in with my partner. Currently back at my Mum's after losing my last job and my previous relationship ending 18 months ago. So luckily I'm not panicking trying to find rent just yet. But after 12 months of being with my partner we are looking to move on to the next stage in our relationship. But how can we do this when I will only be receiving £60 a week?
I'm now reluctant to apply for another job, unless its a work from home (and they're mostly little pay). I suffer from depression, and losing this job came as a huge blow. As did the others. I feel I am setting myself up for yet another failure if I jump straight into a job without any sort of improvement in my condition. How am I supposed to resign myself to the fact I cannot work though. At 23 I am definitely too young to spend my life in these four walls. Waiting for the next flare up, if it decides to go down that is. Been three weeks of constant pain this time.
This is what they don't tell you in the leaflet you get from hospital. That it's never just going to be pain and treatment and BAM! solution. Endo takes everything. Just hacks away at your life. Just a good job I'm a fighter. I've been through some crap in my short life. But even I'm shocked and slightly scared with how strong I've become with my Endo. It likes to fight back though. And that's the problem.
