Since June 2002, after suffering from severe ocd, I got struck with a mysterious illness which I have endured for nearly 17 years now! My head is contantly tired, but not the normal state of tiredness as we know it. Instead my head feels like a rotting apple in the desert - a toxic form of irritable tiredness that is not cured by sleep! I cannot enjoy life anymore like I used to before June 2002. Every day, I have to spend time lying and even sleeping on the lounge sofa because living like this is unbearable! I can only work part time as a result of my afflictions. When I applied for Employment Support Allowance and Personal Independence Payments, I scored a damned zero TWICE when I was accessed by medical officials from the Department of Work and Pensions!! They claimed I was fit for normal everyday work! They did not give a damn about my ailing head! I never had a head scan, so I do not know what's going on.
