Mrs C had had crippling arthritis for over 10 years, whereby she went to bed in agony and woke up unable to move and still in excrutiating pain. She was on a high dose of very strong pain-killers which only took the edge off the pain she was constantly in. She could no longer do any gardening, shopping was a painful chore, all household jobs were exhausting and painful and after a very short while she had to rest, even sitting watching TV was painful.
Mr H had worked for the same company doing warehouse work for 20 years, he’d been fit and healthy during most of that time. Then he was unfortunately made redundant so he changed jobs to another company still doing a relatively physical job but it was a bit different from the one before.
