Fightback: Part 4 of n

Well it’s been a strange few days. I’ve been to a work capabilities assessment yesterday, and my god it was draining. Just about two and a half hours talking medical history going as in depth as we could. I think the hardest thing about it was saying certain things out loud. Such as the lack …
