I'm only recently diagnosed but feel sure I've had fibro at least a year, possibly more. A lot suddenly became clear. The picture's been clouded by other health issues.
I've just had a conversation with an employer who would really like to get rid of me but phrased it as "cutting down". It worries me as I wonder about the reaction of DWP ESA/PIP/DLA or whatever it is now. Would they interpret it as me cutting my hours voluntarily and therefore not qualifying for help. Someone at work thinks I take Friday off to have a long weekend ie swinging the lead. Last week it wasn't illness but waiting in for council over flooding issues - and I said so. (council stuff was still happening on Sunday). The thing is these days I've run out of steam by Friday and struggle to get out of bed. Each day is a struggle anyway. I'm already on housing benefit to top up wages. Any ideas anyone? I didn't find anything on categories on the right, but maybe I missed what I was looking for.
I can see where this is all going but I'll be dragged there kicking and screaming, and boy can I scream.
The sign in the photo tickled me. It's near a closed leisure centre and school in Winchester.
