    Struggling with FND - a seizure resulted in an injury which has left me in a wheelchair (until I can have an op... #waiting) and although I am responding to treatment, my autoimmune disease has left me exhausted.

    I have started the Scope programme to help me get back into work... but after 15 years this is hard.

    @Cathrene That's amazing though, to take that step after 15 years! Well done :) What kind of work are you looking to go into?

    I'm sorry you are struggling and waiting for an operation. I usually give the advice to see if the surgeon has a cancellation list. Provided you could go in on short notice of course. I had surgery in 2020 and was given 10 days notice being on the cancellation list. 

    Make sure you do get as much rest as possible and cups of tea! <3
