I will try keep this short. Mum dead age 38 , father dead aged 63. Female grandparents died before the age of 50 male grandparents died at 60. Aunts And uncles died. My bother died on his 3rd heart attack at 55. I’ve never smoke , not a big drinker, had a silent heart attack at 32. Since then I’ve been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and arthritis hyper pressure body flinches spasms are yet undiagnosed blood a concern I have been told I’ve got 30 to 50 weeks to wait I live on morphine and antidepressants. My health doesn’t get better , if you could give me a pill and a choice of coming off benefits and working for the rest of my life or staying as I am I never working again I would take that pill in a heartbeat because my life is awful people complain about the lockdown but that’s the life I live every day because of pain yeah I have to go and plead my case in front of a stranger every time my benefit runs out I am made to feel like the dregs of this society I’ve never done any illegal drugs or anything I’ve never done anything wrong when I could work I did work up until my silent heart attack. Perhaps people with permanent conditions could be exempt from being hold over hot coals. Unless A cure is invented that works.
