I was off work for a while with my OA i decided to reduce my hours and go back,as i cant afford to stay on ssp. Im a care assistant doing night duty, my OA is in my spine and im in pain constantly, i spend most of my days off in bed trying to recover from my shift!! Ive applied for Dla but still waiting!! Is there anything else i can do? I love my job but I dont know how long i can cope iwth this.
