Hi all.....I was new some months ago but havnt posted much as sooo fed up with my constant complaints and due to loosing my business of 25yrs in 2010 was told to do claim for DLA altho am officially still trying to be self-employed but have been very down after my gp filled in her part of the form as I have no problems looking after children (we have 4) and no problem getting to the surgery(altho hubby takes me and drops me off at the door but she wouldnt know this as she sits in her office !!! ) now Im not bothering with the appeal for the time being as I would find it far tooooo stressful and am going to try anew male gp weve just got see if he is a tad more sympathetic !!! found it all very depressing lately as Ive gone from being such a busy shop owner to a wreck of a person who struggles thro a "normal" day ...... gp did send me to "chat" with the surgerys "mental health nurse" who was supposed to help who has advised I make a list of all the outstanding things I would normally do with no problems and that is now bothering me ie house that looks like weve been robbed, ironing sky-high, baskets of bills and letters I simply cant face, not to mention trying to do an on-line business since closure of our shop which is not working really as I simply cant do it most days ............ added stress of having to sell our beloved family home we have been restoring for past 10yrs but that isnt happening any day soon due to current UK housing market.............we have run our own shops since 1990 and probably quite proud to be self employed therefore we are not on any benefits altho do get bit of help with council tax as low earners...........oh dear me soooo sorry to ramble on its all very depressing isnt it !!!! ...................if the health issues could be eased it would be simply wonderful but that aint happening either.....................tried it all and done it all and all no blooming good.............what they diagnosed as IBS is getting sooo bad im convinced its something much worse ....... its sooo bad with the pains in my stomach I can no longer walk more than 5 mins without great pain, the summer hols with 4 children proving to be a killer as I simply cant do the days out of endless walking round theme parks etc even if we did have the funds to do so............need to go back to gp when children go to school and see where we go from here .............at the moment give up all my meds apart from general paracetamols etc as nothing has helped they are just masking symptoms not finding the root cause, just trying some D-Ribose someone suggested for energy but if anyone has any tips on supplements Ide be most grateful.............the vit D check may be worth looking at also.................oh dear me sorry to prattle on sooo much but thanks for listening x x
