Trying to keep going
Hiya everyone.. I have a various mobility and physical illness which prevents me from working..I use a variety of mobility aids and some days I don't due to being in more pain in upper body.. However my physio and I would like me to follow a plan in which I would be walking for 5 to 15 minutes in fresh air.. Regardless of pain levels..and I can obviously sit down or rest if I need to.. I have no issues trying this as I am in pain regardless.. And I feel it would be beneficial for maintaining my limited mobility, maybe help with my insomnia and my mental health.. However I am on esa and pip and I'm worried about this being held against me.. Even though this might be the only activity I will manage that day.. I'm I paranoid or I'm I right to be worried about this.. X thank you for help or advice
