I NEED BATHROOMS WITH ENOUGH ROOM TO MOVE AROUND IN. EVERY HEALTHY PERSON SHOULD BE IN MY PLACE FOR A DAY AND KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE. YOU CAN HAVE MY PAIN TOO IF YOU LIKE TO REALLY EXPERIENCE THE REAL JOYS OF BEING ME AND NO HOPE OF GETTING BETTER ONLY WORSE.

I have Degen. Spondylethesis & on Morphine patches every 3 days (down to 2 days now because of the cold/damp air!), & recently had to fight to get my Disability reinstated after a fellow business person in the same road stated I was illegally claiming Disability! For a year I had to fight, lost nearly 4 stone (still too skinny for my height!), with all the worry. Had to sell my home at a loss of nearly £20k just so I could cover the mortgage as we were down by £500pcm. We are now crammed in...

I have Degen.

For a year I had to fight, lost nearly 4 stone (still too skinny for my height!), with all the worry. Had to sell my home at a loss of nearly £20k just so I could cover the mortgage as we were down by £500pcm. We are now crammed in a 2 bed bungalow in NEED of serious repairs, but the mortgage is do-able. My benefits have been reinstated, but it's frightened me too much to carry on where we where. And that my Partner would have lost out on family through having to work all hours Godsend to TRY n keep our roof over our heads if I'd had to call it a day. So bloody Government do-gooders, put yourself in our shoes 1st before you cut a person's benefits & don't do it just to manipulate the figures as it will cost lives!!

I am 35 years old and suffer from full-body RSD ( Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy), the most painful disease known to man.
In the winter, I am debilitated and in bed at least 5 out of 7 days of the week.
I have been suffering with this monster disease since 2006, and have learned to live through constant, relentless, burning, stabbing, painfully numb, consistent pain 24/7. I never get a break from pain. It is living hell. When I am able to walk, I walk with a heavy limp. I am unable to do the...

I am 35 years old and suffer from full-body RSD ( Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy), the most painful disease known to man.
In the winter, I am debilitated and in bed at least 5 out of 7 days of the week.
I have been suffering with this monster disease since 2006, and have learned to live through constant, relentless, burning, stabbing, painfully numb, consistent pain 24/7. I never get a break from pain. It is living hell. When I am able to walk, I walk with a heavy limp. I am unable to do the basic things in life that I used to be able to do such as cook, clean, etc. I wouldn't wish this disease on my worst enemy. It has stripped me of the life I had planned for myself. All of my goals and dreams have been thrown out the window by RSD and I have been forced to find other goals and different dreams that are attainable now, like finding a cure for this illness.
Please don't take away my life line! It's all I have left to survive and live off of at this point! Thank you!

I was a full time employee of Verizon Wireless. I was forced to leave my job. And I have been refused suitable accommodations at work. And demanded to resIgn I also have been refused benifits from Social Security. After huge amounts of taxes we're taken out of my check every month. Its been a challenge. But with God on my side and my love and gift for music. "Love will get me through. Cdbaby.com/cd/creaves
