Just wanted to say hello!
Feeling like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place at the moment. I'm a 38 year old male and unfortunately my health issues started over ten years ago- starting with Hypopituitarism and diabetes but over the past couple of years the list just seams to keep getting longer with arthritis, fibromyalgia and degenerative disc disease.
I'm at the point where most days are a struggle, I'm just sore and tired! I don't want people's sympathy but I just wish people understood a little that despite how I look things are not ok.
Although iv been shielding since the new year, this next week I'm due back to work and its a worrying time because I'm not the person I once was and I just don't know if I can forfil my position! It was suggested that I consider applying for disability but still having a reasonable size mortgage alone completely rules that option out so im faced with the fact I may have to limp through work and have a restricted quality of life at home just to survive.
Thats some introduction, but it's me and the reason I'm here.
