The letter came yesterday from my employer to confirm that I was being dismissed through sickness capability. I was expecting it as I have been going through the process since May last year, when I had to give in to the deterioration in my walking, pain, fatigue & cognitive problems which I’m still experiencing, and which are not improving at the moment (I live in hope)! I had quite a responsible job which in turn brought it stresses. Despite knowing it was inevitable, it was still horrible seeing it in black & white and the realisation that I’m no longer employed, which I’ve been for 30 years, and will be relying on benefits (unfortunately, due to circumstances I wasn’t in a pension scheme, my husband was self-employed, but is now my carer) - am waiting the verdict of my ESA claim. I can’t explain how I feel at the moment, but for all those of you that have been or going through a similar experience, does it get easier to accept both emotionally & financially?
