After having a scour through this forum and seeing the lovely help, support and advice you are all giving to one another, i thought i may join in a bid that some nice person out there could give me a bit of advice.
Three years ago i was involved in a bad rta and was off work for 8 months recouperating. When i eventually returned to work i had to be placed on light duties and have my working hour reduced because of the injuries i sustained in the accident. At Christmas 2017, i was diagnosed with FM that i personally believe was the onset of the stress and trauma of the accident. Yet again my duties and hours at work have had to be reduced.
I'm 56 yrs old and at my age the job is tiring enough for me to contend with, without the addition of the FM symptoms and the on going suffering i endure from the injuries i have been left with.
As you can imagine without being able to do a full working week, the wages dont go far, often not even covering my weekly outgoings and leaving me with litrally pennies in my purse each week. .
All this combined is making me wonder if its really worth exhausting myself and being in constant pain for the pittance of a wage i am left with each week. I am really so ready to give up my job but i am worried that there will be no help for me if i do so. Has anyone else on here given up working and if so could you please advise me on how to go about it.
. with Thanks
