Hello my name is Sharon, I'm 45 and this is my first post. I have just been told I may be able to retire early on ill health grounds I would need 2 reports one from my GP and another from a specialist ? GP not a problem but having been diagnosed with fibro and depression for the last 6 years or so I have never seen a specialist. I received PIP at the high rate and even have a blue badge because of the fatigue I suffer. Last September I had my left wrist fused because of a condition called Kienbock's disease last week i ended up in hospital on an antibiotic drip as I had a severe infection due to the metal plate they used to fuse my wrist. I am going to have to have it removed sometime this year! I returned to work on a phased return in January and am off again. I have asked if I can retire due to my health. Over the last 5/6 years l have had long periods of absence and tried to return at least 3 times. I find now my industry moves quicker than my fibro/fibro fog will let me. I have worked for 29 years with the same company in banking. My worry is where do I get evidence from another specialist when there is none ... Any suggestions?
