My main physical issues these days are balance and vision. This creates problems with fatigue and anxiety. I'm wondering if anyone else out there is managing to hold down a job with these kinds of problems.
I am hugely struggling with this whole ESA process and doubts are beginning to creep in that should just 'man up' and go find a job. But .. I honestly don't know what I could do for any realistic amount of time.
The only classic role I can think of being remotely suitable is reception. Maybe in the right company it would be a manageable balance of tasks but then I know that committing day in day out week in week out is a huge leap of faith. For both me and any prospective employer. The last two months have been shocking just because of back to back colds playing havoc with my compensation ability and fatigue levels.
I can't face the prospect of claiming, being denied and dealing with a whole appeal process but equally I just cannot see me securing a job that is suitable that I have any realistic chance of getting through a probation period for.
I've got to be able to manage this on top of being single parent to a seven year old who is not the most straightforward of kids from a health and care perspective either.
It's all becoming a heady mix of overwhelming and paralysing.
Having a whole new bout of THIS SUCKS! Sorry 😕
