    Thanks  Albus .  Have had a  horrible month with 1 thing and another . My wife lost her dad and we had his funeral recently , I had a fall back in October and cracked a rib  and just  had so many health problem  with 1 after  another  and  its  kinda played havoc with my head. 

    What  has brought me here is to feel part of a community and  to hear other peoples  experiences  and if there is any practical help out there  and if I am claiming  the correct benefits as  my life  has been turned upside down since my health issues  begun and  multiplied.

    What benefits are you both claiming exactly? It's impossible to advise without knowing all the information. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
