Had my meeting at work today. (Was) a nurse in a nursing home, have been off sick for 2 1/2 years, diagnosed now with permanent spinal cord damage and PPMS, realise I’ll never hold down a regular job but now I’ve got home I feel a bit empty. I expected to be let go and had my “no hard feelings” talk prepared and delivered it well with dignity.
I’d decided that if this happened I would volunteer with a charity to help others in any way I can but suddenly the world seems huge. Anyone have ideas on what I could do? I’m 43, brain works most days, body’s a bit broken but self esteem could do with a lift. Thanks for reading.
