Hi All…hope you are all feeling well.
I have been having thoughts of packing in work lately and would value some input from anyone with experience or thoughts about it.
I have worked all my life and am lucky enough to have been healthy until hit with this awful illness in 2013, been diagnosed just over a year. I found it difficult to manage full time and the physical side of the job so the company I work for have created a new office based part time role for me, I feel really lucky to have this.
I receive a small wage, tax credits and PIP so money is not an issue at the moment. I do sometimes feel like it would be better not working and having more time to myself. What would be available (ESA etc.) if I decided not to work ? And how do people feel without the pressure/stress of work?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
