i've just been told that i may never go back to work,and if i do it can only be part time with flexi hours,no manual or stressful work and i'd need a mentor to keep an eye on me,,i know i can't work at the moment but i was hoping to go back maybe in a years time,but the doctor that did my medical and work focused interview said,if i do go back to work there is a high chance i'll have a relapse,i'm so desperate to work,i want to work in childrens social care,i bought 2 courses that would help me do that,haven't started them yet as i've been too tired,but now i feel really down,i've always been active and working,and these past 4 years of not working have been awful,but i kept the hope of returning to work one day,now it seems that may not be possible,,,,but i won't give up

I f you are unable to work then i am sure with them telling you that you should be entitled to a benifit as it is not your fault you are not getting a wage.With them telling you that you should tell the sickness ben team to get in contact with the person you have seen and they will like they did for my brother help fill in the forms to claim illness allowance of some kind.

Keep your hopes up. Don't always believe what you are told. They told me my son would basically be a vegetable and they were wrong. He has problems, but definitely not like that. Good luck to you. All you can do is keep trying.

That is great news now, that you are at work and working full time.I think that it is good, when drs get things wrong.Even the focused doctor got it wrong as well, not unless god shone down on you.Glad that your pain has all gone now.

I am so sorry to know that doormouse. I can understand hor you feel... staying home made you feel down because you aren't use to it... But I am sure you can find a job that you can do without causing any health hazard on you... Well the think is, your doctor is just after your health and just want the best for you... And you have a good attitude there... Never lose hope... I am sure there is a good job that is really suited for you... Job that is full time but not that straining and stressful... Godd luck and wish you good health always!
