sorry to moan folkes but the damn fibro has the better of me since xmas.....I have gone from bad to worse......lots of added stress at home at the moment with eldest son doing A levels and hoping to go to Uni (theres another financial worry) 2nd eldest son doing GCSE;s and stressed to death with worries about college/jobs etc......youngest son of 9 currently waiting assesement for ADHD/Autism been long journey and soooo hoping to get there soon.......poor daughter of 12 has named herself "the forgotten child" .....stress stress.....been self employed since 1990 running our own business which had to close in 2010 due to this illness ....been soooo ill since xmas sent in sick notes, total waste of time they have awarded me 0 ESA , no contribution based as they say I missed a nat ins payment despite the fact it is on direct debit monthly - cant get income based as hubby just got part time job doing nights at supermarket for 24 hrs seems this is the cut off point, he earns very little but wanted to do something and this was all he could get, as a Research Scientist for ICI for endless years seems such a waste but you gotta take whatever jobs there are.....now council tax have took our benefit off wanting an extra £250 per month, will probably loose his working tax credits as this lovely government have amended the amount you can earn from £10,000 down to just £5,000 so that includes him so basically probably not worth him doing 3 hard night shifts a week as he will probably only net £100 month - not that he will give it up he would rather work and be earning but it all seems soooo unfair...............lots of financial stress due to loss of business and have meeting wed with citizens advise who have been trying to help so fingers crossed on that score....hoard of bills to catch up iwth and Im sure all this affects my fibro - just feel like giving up and giving into it !!!!!!!!!!!! bah humbug !!! moan over with.............
