over the year I've been finding my pains are getting bad, it's got to the stage my husband bought me a mobility scooter this week as I'm finding I just can not walk far without my legs giving up,and by the time I get back home I'm in so much pain, sometimes my legs give up going down stairs or going up, I've had 3 falls so far in the last few months falling down stairs, now I find it's getting hard to open milk bottles and jars and things, even writing my fingers hurt, cutting bread my hands hurt, I also suffer with diabetes which my go says makes it worse as both are fighting against each other, I really don't know what to do anymore, I cry and get so frustrated as I can't do the things I want anymore and I feel so sorry for my husband as he works full time and then does a lot at home when he gets home, I've even herd him cry worrying over me, I would love to work, to get some money off my own, I don't even know if I can get any help, my husband pays for a cleaner to come in twice a week as I can't even do that, I feel tide all the time, I can't excise as I get pains quickly and feel I've run a mile, is there anyone else on here that's going through all this as much as I am and what help do you get ? Can I get help from benefits or even mobility stuff free even though my husbands working, I'm 51 and feeling my life is coming to a end that I can't do anything for myself, is this classed as a disability and does it mean we can get benefits I really don't know where to start or who to ask for help, can people please give me some advice.. Thank you in advance.
