Before I was diagnosed with RD in September this year I was hoping to swap my desk bound job which I hate and is stressful to retrain as a florist. I wanted something not desk bound as it makes my back pain much worse.
After diagnosis everyone has been very negative. The OT and the physio told me to forget any ideas like this, that I should not be looking to change jobs and should be grateful I'm in a public sector job as at least they are better about disability.
I feel very shellshocked and miserable. I feel like everyone is telling me I'm on the scrap heap now. They are effectively telling me I'm unemployable and that I should be grateful for my job no matter how lousy and stressful it is.
What have other people done
