I feel really sad today. I left school with zero exams and then spent 10 years studying as a single parent to get my GCSE's, A levels, a Law Degree and a Social Work Masters Degree. I wasn't big headed, but I was very proud as its more than I ever dreamed I was capable of.
But today, after being on sick leave for 16 months I have submitted my resignation It feels like I just waved all my hard work goodbye and this damned illness won. I did it all for nothing.
I'm hoping to become self employed as a legal adviser, family support worker and welfare/benefits rights advocate. But it feels like a cop out. The booby prize so to speak. How is it possible that I did a law degree as a single parent to a 1 year old that never slept and I still found energy reserves at the end of the day .... and now I am so weak .... this illness take my career. I just feel devastated
Sorry for the long since ... I just really needed to sound off
