UK School Worker Kathy, 58, Reveals What It's Like Living In Lockdown With A Chronic Health Condition

From UK news outlet StokeonTrentLive:
School worker Kathy, 58, reveals what it's like living in lockdown with a chronic health condition
She is now having to retire early from her job at The Willows Primary, in Penkhull, due to her diagnosis
A mum-of-two has made the difficult decision to give up her school job after being diagnosed with a debilitating condition.
Kathy Simms is a business manager at The Willows Primary, in Penkhull, and loves the role.
Since finding out she has myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) last September, the school has allowed her to work from home. But the chronic fatigue and pain has now meant she's been approved for medical retirement due to the severity of her condition.
The 58-year-old, from Crewe, said: “I love my job. It’s so rewarding and the school has really supported me in working from home since September, but I'm struggling to do the job now. It’s really sad as I really enjoyed it and felt I could make a difference.”
