I'm feeling a little sore and fed up today. My head is aching, I'm sore all over and I feel like having a damn good cry. I think it's down to working an 8hr shift on a Sunday in my local shop. The thing is I need to work and what's more I want to work as I enjoy not only the financial benefits but the social side of working. I'm sure you will all agree that 8hrs on your feet with RA is an awful long time and unfortunately I'm not able to sit down at work. I've asked to change my hours but my requests keep falling on deaf ears. It's just so frustrating when you want to work but employers do nothing to help. So today I've taken a couple of anti inflammatories and am recovering, unable to do my housework. I must add that it doesn't help when I get absolutely no benefits as I was found "fit to work" by DWP but as I can only work limited hours I'm falling behind on NI contributions which will probably mean I won't be entitled to a full pension if I'm ever lucky enough to retire. Rant over now but I feel better for getting it off my chest.
