to work and am now claiming ESA I am in the support group which means I do not have to go to the job centre and be looking for work which I am grateful as that must be stressful however as much as I could not possibly work right now I am feeling depressed at the thought of is this it? and just getting by of the little income which I do not know how long I can claim for. ? I should have been retired in two years but I now have another eight years to go. I am wandering if there is any training I could do or voluntary work that would not affect the benefit I am on. Although I am not well I would like to think there is something I could do to get me out of this depression and feeling useless. This is the first time I have joined something like this and been intouch with other lupus sufferers. I have not gone into my health problems as we all seem to have the same mainly the fatigue and could go on forever about symptoms.
