Hi, my name is CatherineFearnley!

Before Christmas 2016.  I suffered from a really bad fall.  I fractured, dislocated and tore ligaments in my left elbow and arm.  I am still unable to straighten this properly and yet am expected to go back to the job centre and make a fresh claim for JSA.  I do not know the kind of work I can do as I cannot do certain activities such as lift anything heavy, hold full cups of liquid and sometimes unable to open doors depending what side the handle is on or how heavy the doors are.  I could appeal the decision but have decided against this and wait and see what happens in the future.  I also have to go for physio every week and attend hospital appointments with my consultants every now and then.
