Should have phoned to have a chat and if I get time tomorrow I will!
I have PA and am a Registered Childminder and I am struggling. I've cut days to 2 and financially it's a juggling act and very stressful. My main problems are my fingers, knees and toes although very recently I've suffered with pleurisy and can't pick the toddlers up too much pain in my back/ribs area. Is there any help I can receive (benefit)? while still managing to work 1 or 2 half days a week? I've been self employed for 15 yrs and love the job, but my joints don't love me! And after a whole day of picking up and trying to keep up with infants I'm in a lot of pain hence why I'm up at 2.08am waiting for Tramadol to kick in. I'm on methotrexate, sulfasalazine and strong painkillers. Sorry to waffle on any help would be appreciated. Thanks Poppy x
