Morning Diddle , yes all due to illness, fibro me osteoarthritis, the list is now long and endless, 7 operations for different things in 7 years, worn down and worn out, However my concern is the way we are treated by the benefits people, they treat people like us we are scroungers and make feel even worse because we cannot work. I cannot remember when or ever been treated so badly by a government department. :( xxx


i was made to feel that it all in my head....roughly in a week i have 3 good days and they expect me to work on theses day...i wish i could go out and work...when i did work i made my self so ill the doctor advised me to give up....we just can't say we'll work on theses days as you don't know if your gonna be fit enough...

am waiting for my appeal to go through...i got to go again and explain why i think am not fit enough to one big joke...
