Reducing hours at work

Has anyone managed to reduce the hours they work? My CP seems to be getting worse as I get older and I'm struggling to work full time and look after myself and family. I would love to only work 3-4 days a week and have discussed this several times with my boss who constantly says I can go part time when we get more funding or someone leaves but I'm yet to be offered reduced hours. I discussed this with my GP who offered to sign me off sick but I don't feel this is productive. I discussed part time hours with my depute boss today who suggested retiring and claiming Pip! I'm only in my 20's! Does anyone have any tips for dealing with employers. I don't want to say I'm not coping at work as the last time I did this I got suspended from clinical duties incase I harmed a service user!
