Do you work, how do you cope, do you get any special measures for your condition?
I have been off since June 2022, self employed so now getting UC. Perimenopause, bereavement and job loss, loss of income and now applying for Mortgage Interest Assistance on top of possible return of endo making this a very stressful situation. My husband doesn't work at the moment due to Functional Neurological Disorder. It's a mess but we have family assistance 🙏
I've been looking at the jobs market and wondered if I'm being a bit too optimistic. The anti depressants are working nicely on my mental health but the nausea, pain, lack of appetite and now I'm starting to feel deconditioned physically. Just going up the stairs had me feeling like an 80 year old yesterday.
I have dispensation until September so I'm not being pressured but somedays I feel ok then others not so good.
I understand that some of us have to solider on regardless due to many factors. Do you have any advice?
I have severe Endo and waiting for an operation now. I am working part time and on UC. I am suffering with fatigue and brain fog, some days it is very hard to work due to horrible bowel pain. But I must work cos I am renting. I got divorced 3 years ago, think my illness was one of the reasons.
I have reduced my contracted hours at work and applied for PIP. My hope is only for surgery 😬
I am sorry to hear this, I do hope that things get better for you.
