UC and ICU
Hi, nice to meet you. I am applying for Universal credit, I had an appointment with a work coach today and tomorrow, I have a commitment meeting with another adviser. 5 weeks ago I was critically ill in Intensive care with pneumonia and sepsis, and my children were told I wasn't expected to live, my youngest just 17.. I worked zero hours as a food sampler/demonstrator in a supermarket, but get no sick pay, hence having to apply for help. I am getting better and recovering at home, but ICU told me it might take up to a year to fully recover and I have my discharge paper from the hospital. I am exhausted by it all, so much paperwork and these meetings too, I feel deflated. too. I am aged 60, I was fit and very active before my illness. Also a sick note/or fit note from my GP will be ready from my surgery on Wednesday, but don't know how long for. I also have other medical conditions. Thank you for reading my post.
