Went to the job centre on Monday to sign on, a lady turned round to me and say I don't think your looking for work, I said I am and burst into tears and asked if can I change admin to something else, she asked why I said as my skills aren't as fresh as they were back in 2007 and the Microsoft office has changed now. She suggested a freshers course I agreed but asked for an interpreter there so I can understand what is being said, I got asked why I need one I explained I am hard of hearing, so she went off to the Disability Employment Advisor and came back and said I need one.
My boss from where I do my volunteering work contacted them and told them how I came to them upset and distorted and that they had no right refusing me an interpreter. So for every meeting I have at the job centre I will have an interpreter.
Only problem is I have no money until Tuesday which is my DLA, and I need to put my electric on.
And I'm ill this stress has caused a flare up, back pain, lack of sleep, migraines
