    Oh, that's fantastic - it was worth the battle (yes?) and well done for sticking at it. DD

    Thank you all
    The last four years at work were Grimm
    Thankfully I had a great occupational health doctor who helped me through it
    Plus the support of my family friends GP and orthopaedic consultant got me through the this as well as the support on here I don't think I would have been so strong
    I'm heading for 50 this year so hopefully life begins at 50 as my 40s were not good years
    Keep well

    Maria I'm delighted for you and sorry I'm only posting now. I hope you are well and getting some enjoyment out of not having to cope with the stress of work on top of everything else.
    Big hugs, hope your day goes well. Rita.
