Hi People 🙂

Long time no write.  Have been ill and have had a lot of tests to see what else is going on with me – suspected Coeliac Disease along with the rest of my disabilities and illnesses – Ach well, that’s the life I was given so I just get on with it as best I can even if my mind wants everything to stop!

The reason I’m on the blog today is to ask if anyone knows where, or what has happened to Ron Graves from https://ronsrants.wordpress.com/ as he hasn’t posted on his page since April 27th this year?  I know he has twitter but I’m not on it and, to be honest, wouldn’t know where to begin with it.  Ron’s was the first blog I actually found and he did help me a lot with his knowledge about chronic pain, fibromyalgia and other things.  I’m a bit concerned that there is no word from him at all so would be really grateful if you could let me know should anyone else be in touch with him.

I’m due to go into hospital on 13th!! July to have my left wrist fused and am dreading it as in May 2012 I went in for an ankle fusion and surgeon cocked it up which led to me having a below-knee amputation in 2013.  I guess you can understand my fears?  I need to have it done as the pain is pretty damn bad and it’s making life even more disabling for me, and as I age, it will just become more and more of a problem, like my amputation has where it won’t be long before I need an electric wheelchair to get around more!

Thanks again everyone and especially those that can hunt down Ron Graves or let me know if something has happened.

Please share – this is a new level of disgusting!

The poor side of life

Sometimes I’m taken by surprise. Mostly I’m not. But this is a new tactic. A new target driven tactic employed by the DWP.

For anyone claiming JSA, ESA Income Support or universal credit you might be familiar with a local service compliance interview. They send these letters out usually on a random basis or sometimes on the say so of a suspected fraud taking place. Now these interviews are compulsory and if you don’t attend then your money will get stopped.

Whilst attending one of these interviews you are normally treated like a criminal, guilty before being proven innocent, most likely innocent of any wrongdoing as you have been randomly picked in the first place. You are taken to a room which looks just like a police interview room. They record everything like the police do, only in this case you are most likely innocent. You are asked to bring…
