    First let me say walking and water. Nothing will help more. Strengthen and stretch those hams, they go all the up into the lower back. I got an Australian Shepherd puppy and trained her. Kept me busy mentally and physically

    The second part comes a little harder and I

    That's why I would contact a lawyer. If you were injured on the job you should be compensated apropriately, and it doesn't sound like that is happening.

    As far as your finances are concerned, get a grip of them one way or another! There are always options!

    Check out this website

    http://www.cccs.co.uk/

    They are offere free credit counselling services

    I've PM'd you

    Brother,

    Talk to a counsellor and keep yourself healthy mentally. I damaged a disk (soft tissue) and I went through some therapy that did nother but wreck me further. What helped me was swiming and strengthening my core -abs and low back. But get in a pool and hot tub while you're waiting for surgey. Also see a chiroprator and bring him your x-rays.

    I would also get some legal advice. Right now you're at home not working, so make this your job. Schedule you're day around your new job. Start slow, buy just walking in a pool and sitting in the hot tub. It will help you feel physically better, which will help how you feel emotionally.

    If you have a documented incident and the organization is screwing you over, there has to be an appeal process.

    Good Luck to you!!

    Do you have any family that can possibly loan you some money?

    How bad is it? Is it just medical, or are their credit cards, car payments, house payment, etc...?

    Correction: In states in which Union's are recognised as bargaining agents for their members, they are a Labor org. In the remainder of the states they are only social orgs.

    In SC, we have no such bargaining rights.

    Talked to my mom a bit. She said make sure you pay your property bills--car, house, electricity, phone etc... first and only pay the credit cards what you can. I don't know how it is in England, but here there is a statute of limitiations and since credit cards are unsecured, the debt gets wiped off your credit after a number of years ( seven years in my state).

    We don't really have any national organisation for LE other than our Federation and they don't do anything like collect for injured officers. They only help in disputes within the organisation and they didn't even reply to my e-mails.
    I feel totally let down by my force and in dire straits as to what to do next!!
