I work for the NHS in a GP surgery. On Friday I had someone ask me 'do u know what it's like to be in pain', yes I do actually was my reply. What really makes me angry is the amount of people I see who come in, fit as a fiddle but claim they can't work. Most of these get DLA, I look to see whats wrong with them and it's hardly ever anything more than back pain. Yet those of us who's entire body suffer pain every day have to struggle to get PIP. I've had to reduce my work hours on Doctors orders so have applied but I'm not expecting an acceptance first time, not based on sat I've read and heard. Fibro's never going to leave s so why can't they accept that and help to make our lives easier instead of adding to our problems with the stress they cause.
