I have been talking to my dr and as I handled the extra hours over New Year well, he agrees I can start looking for 30 hours a week again. This is officially a full time job, so I am now transferred from the sickness benefit to the unemployment benefit. No change in financial circumstances as the amount paid is the same, but to say I'm unemployed implies a temporary situation whereas when I'm sick I get very depressed thinking I'm going to stuck like this. Anyway, I met with a work broker today to discuss a work plan, It won't be easy with so many still out of work, but I have an advantage in that I am already doing 2 pt jobs. I think I will look for retail work instead of going back to office work as I really enjoy working in the wool shop.

    It's great that your doctor is working with you on this to see when you are ready to lead yourself back into the ranks of the employed when the time is right. And while your circumstances will not change with the terminology, I think that once you are in the right work place you will have some insurance that it will be very fulfilling! Good luck with the transitional stage...
