fI was a full time carer for my 86 yr old mom but she's sadly passed away in 27/7/15 i'd say it was co depency. We kinda looked after each other. She was my reason to get up, to to carry on regardless of how much pain i was in.
It's a long story but for now can anyone advise me please on what beneits i may be entitled with my medical conditions to as my head is all over the place as i am grieving at the moment after losing her.

2007 Diagnosed with Inflammatory Arthritis. ( no RF) but later that year had RF so confirmed diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Restless Leg Syndrome
Had endless joint injections in my knee and aspirations, More steroid injections in my left shoulder, both hands by thumbs but now my fingers are looking all crooked like witches fingrs as ffinger joints are swollen, same with my big toe and ankles it's sometimes so difficult to walk due to the swelling
I have Cervical Spondolysis
Dec 2009 had my left hip replaced due to OsteoArthritis.
