Been self employed since 1990 and never had day off “sick” since despite being very ill with fibro and CFS at the moment I just muddle through - however been sooooo ill since xmas I quite literally havnt moved off the sofa as per my blog yesterday gp wants me to try duloxetine but has also given me sick note for 4 weeks - I have no idea what to do with it as I've never had one since I was in employment in 1990 - hubby nipped the job centre to ask and all they said was to give him a phone no to ring I need to log a claim for ESA whatever that is ............. As a low earning self employed person I get working tax credits and I know this sounds quite terrible but will this ESA thingy affect this as we quite literally rely on the tax credits at the moment ?? Any comments on this would be very gratefully received ass I simply don't know what I'm doing and getting quite stressed with bad flare up of my IBS over this ............ Thanks in advance x
