Hi, my name is kerrycatlover!
I've had a 'hidden' disability for over 3 years now. I have chronic pain in my foot which makes standing in one position extremely painful and affects how far I can walk, but as I don't limp that badly or have to use walking aids yet most people wouldn't know. I had to give up the job I had in a school over 2 years ago and as I don't drive I'm almost completely reliant on my husband. I spend a lot of time at home by myself while he's working and find this has really affected my self esteem. I would really like to get in touch with other people like me because I feel quite isolated sometimes. Also I'm only in my forties.
