    i am looking for work in retail area , the problem I have is that my left hand side is a bit useless , I cannot bend my knees hence cannot bend over to pick anything up or reach bottom shelves , I am thinking of voluntary to start back with , but  all I was offered by job centre was at local recycle centre .which is no help for me .
