Hi, I was diagnosed with fms and hypermobility syndrome in 2010 at 32 after suffering symptoms since I was 19. I have worked since leaving college, first full time, had our little girl in 2003, and have gradually had to reduce my hours to the 15 a week that I'm struggling to do at the moment.
I applied for pip (dla as was) earlier this year as we are seriously struggling money wise and in debt up to our ears. I have a fab family and my husband and now 11 year old daughter are amazing as are my parents, but I feel so guilty that I work 3 hours a day, get home and sleep until I pick my daughter up from school then spend all weekend sleeping so that I can get thru the next week at work.
I am so exhausted and feel that I have no quality of life with my family-we don't go out or do things together because I'm so tired or short tempered if I haven't slept or am in pain.
My life is just one big moan and I'm sick of hearing myself so everyone around me must be.
I think I'm getting to the point where I need to stop work but I don't even know where to start. Can anyone help please? :-( x
