    Believe me Ach, I am totally on the same page as you on this. I am getting paranoid now about who knows I receive benefits. Where I live, the subject has never arisen because my neighbours are few and far between (very rural), but I do now have a new next door neighbour who is disabled, and he spoke to me about his money and benefits, and I was hoping and praying that he didn't ask me if I was in receipt of benefits (how strange is that), so I was just responding with things like "I realise it must be very difficult trying to survive, but let's look at what you can do, I will help with any advice I can".

    It's not that I am ashamed to be in receipt of benefits (I have after all worked all my life and am only taking what the Government say I am entitled to), it's only the same as receiving your State Pension at the end of the day! It's people's pre conceived ideas of 'disabled' and what that entails - why are we so afraid of other people's opinions?

    p.s I don't feel like this today, or on many days, however, there are times when I do.

    Tell people you are a writer. If you put all you posts together there is enough dribble to be a Jackie Collins novel (Joke)

    Oh and BTW get over yourself asap, it doesn't suit you.

    I say retired so people think I'm rich because I'm only 41 LOL
