In 2009 i had an accident that resulted in me having difficulty walking and i could only get a partime job in a Supermarket as nobody else would employ me. Ive had half a knee replaced and live on painkillers as the NHS wont do anymore operations until im over 65. My 71 yr old wife has to keep working to help payour rent. Im on happy tablets because the guilt and upset of not being able to support my wife in her retirementgot me down.
