I have a brother that i have been trying to help he has,severe depression, sleep disorder, he has had a heart attack, Bypass surgery and possibly has ptsd.
Every agency refuses to help as he won't engage himself.

I also have a son who went through school being 'treated as' SEN but they refused to test him.I finally snapped and insisted on testing after he left school and got a diagnosis of dyspraxia / dyslexia.
He is learning to drive and just been discrimated against by Go Skippy refusing to add him to my policy as he has held a provisional licence for more than 2 years.
I'm fighting them on grounds they failed to apply reasonable adjustment for his disability.

Personally I have had my own heart attack and Bypass surgery, I took voluntary redundancy after it, but now 7 years later I'm getting leg pain, and despite private physio it's no better I have confirmed calcification of arteries, i think it is PAD so waiting for a musculoskeletal assessment and hopefully I can get PIP, because I took voluntary redundancy/ VER I only have my early pension so I'm going through my savings at £1000 a month.
Phew ....a lot going on !
