    Employed seasonally part time, once I get a few health issues sorted out I'm going to look for full time, I think i need to grow up & get a "real job"

    I work full time for the National health service in London - over here workplaces have to make "reasonable adjustments" for disabled people - they used to largely ignore this but it's getting much better and working for a large organisation means they are very good at ensuring everything is as i need it.

    Do other people who work full time (i'm including parents in that - can't think of a more full-time job!) find they get much more tired since they were injured? I seem to be exhausted all the time these days and i don't think it's my age - i'm only 32!!

    I find I go down as the week goes on. I just like to get out of this dang chair. Do the math I get up at 5:15 am, couple transfers to wo work at least they ALL day in wheelchair and 5:15 pm if I am lucky so we are doing hard time at work. I really get pissed at my boss for not getting me a chair because I am all over the building. I do like to move around a be active but just a few minutes out of this wheelchair makes a big difference. I sometime sneak into an empty room so I can lay on my stomach and let my legs spazm out and it fell like a pain reliever.
