HI
I'm 27 years old Self-employed IT Geek and i have 2 kids and wife (she is not working).
As I have never had Chicken pox in my life when my son got it - it come to me as well.

My GP is telling me that i have to stay at home however I'm getting paid for what I'm doing and I'm just about to pay for my bills with that.

If i continue to work complication can be serious in my age.

Is there any agency or any1 who can help me as I don't really can do my work now.
I was doing services for few companies and if I will go there with all them spots all over my face it wont be nice.

Who should I talk to?

Aren't you contagious with chicken pox before the spots break out?

Don't quote me on this. I'd go with whatever your GP is advising.

My GP said I have to stay at home for week as chicken pox spreed very fast and is very dangerous especially for woman in pregnant who can just past by me.

but if I stay at more for week it will be financial dead for me.

Best regards

It's highly contagious and can be spread either by direct contact or by air. You really must do what your GP says.

If you're a self-employed IT geek, why not make the best of your bad luck and spend the time at home creating something that'll bring you some financial benefit?

Have a clear out and sell on eBay.

Build some websites.

What's your native language? There might be some niche opportunities there.

Also talk to your clients (by phone or email), they may not mind waiting a week or so for you to get well again. They could be very understanding, but they sure as hell won't want you showing up at their premises with a contagious disease.

Good luck - let us know how you get on.

PS: I see you're posting from the UK. Have a dig around on this site:

http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/index.htm

You should be able to find benefits info to help you there.

I'm a bit shocked at your GP. It's all very well for him to say "stay away from people" but IMO he should at least have given you some leaflets about how and where to claim sickness benefits.

At least you have Internet access so you can take some action to find out info and do something about this problem.
