  4. Well the job I've got is driving again but it's only a little van 5.30am start. I deliver sandwiches, baguettes and baps around Chesterfield and Matlock so has to be early start and lasts 10 hours. But its a job, couldn't live on 44 pound DLA I guess I'm a ticking time bomb again but I have to live. This country doesn't care about us. FACT !
