I am still signed off work, but due to go back on Monday with my new working hours. I am pleased that I will only do till lunch time, but worried as my wages will drop by £200 a month. I don't earn a lot of money but really enjoy my job as a teaching assistant for special needs children.
I have had a steroid injection and due to have a top up this week as I haven't had much relief so far from swelling and pain.
I don't qualify for an increase in child tax credits as our combined wages don't drop below the threshold.
HELP, what else am I entitled to? I am in the process of claiming for DLA, even if I am entitled to the lowest amount it would be a help.
I do want to try and keep working although the fatigue and swelling gets me down. But I am willing to give it a go.
Would be lovely to hear any of your advice.
