    Hi there! I have MS too....spinal PPMS...had it for 22 years.

    Are you getting any useful advice from the Job Centre?

    I don't see why you shouldn't be able to work if you can and want to.

    Hi @Tractorgirlali, it's good to meet you! 

    Of course, I think it's possible. Here is a link to our Employment Services  that I hope can help. I love football too. We have started a football discussion. It would be great if you wanted to join it.

    Well, with a name like @Tractorgirlali, it has to be Ipswich Town. Am I right? If you click where I wrote football discussion it will take you to the conversation.
