Hi Everyone I'm 43 and today I retired officially through ill health. I'm trying to get my head round that one. I was very lucky, I left my job nearly three years ago, then someone said to me "why did you resign, why didnt you push to retire through ill health?" So I asked the pensions dept, and they were happy to arrange everything for me. Amazing, something went right for a change. It isnt a vast sum of money, but every little helps. It's just weird being retired at 43!!! I would never have dreamt of that happening before getting CFS. Counting my lucky stars as ever, and making lemonade from the lemons life throws at me.
