Iwas wondeing if any one out there s able to offer some advice. I have spent the last10 yrs plus working temp jobs, full on work followed by periods of time off. This last yr i have not done so much work, was luckyenough to have some savings and we have been traveling, with the last month or so wild camping in scotland, where there was pleanty to do but allthat needed doing was collecting firewood, so my days were spent sitting by the camp fire poking it. Other than looking lazy i was a picture of outdoor health. Now we are back just the minial jobs of hanging out the washing and preparing meals leaves me broken. I had hoped that after a long stint of no work or stress id be re charged and ready to go, this has not been the case an i feel worse as time has gon on. My body tinles all over all the time, my eyes are only pain free for the first hr of the day. As the daygoes on i get tireder and tireder and my legs start to really hurt. I have to sleep in the afternoons, as wel as emotionl outbursts and crying.
I do not see the gp ever as just get told “hmmm, yes probably just he MS” otherthan being annoyed by the “JUST ms” its a waste of everyones time asthey cant do anything any way. Same with the MS nurse, a sympathetic ear but nothing can be done. I do see te consultant but thats infrequent, brief and she cant wave a wand either.
It has become apparent that i can not work any more, but wat do i do. we looked at new jobs and retraining, but now i feel even worse. I am the picture of health. Always been work hard play hd, self surficient type, indipendent and stubbon. Has anyone out there any surgestions? how do i go about getting financial help, if i can, if i cant, what do i do? Any help, advice or pointers greatly appriciated.
