    So rude not to introduce myself.  I'm a senior adult and child support worker. Live separate from my partner. One we have no children due to being on antibiotics for 25 years for hidredinitis suppativa.  Suffered beyond a carers belief to cope in the workplace. To the point of work colleagues get extreamly worried.  And heart rate is 99. Never been operated on. As I was one out of 3 . Other 2 20 years later. Well one is addicted to pain killers never worked.  Social paid them as it turns out hospital admission went ahead for them . Mine being a female due on periods left my hidredinitis on foever war. Now open to superbugs due to overuse of antibiotics.  Any dental or other infections go way our if control. End up with biomedical unit making a mix for me to cope . Tragic to keep a job down. I have had people I have cared for crying as they thought it would adventually kill me. The cost of time off work.  I could of bought my own house by now. Perscriptions robbed me of having children. And still no help out there . Shame to the government, as a Senior care worker for over 25 years  for nhs. Working getting the sack for working in the hospital. As now the hospital a threat to me with open wounds . I have needed caring for as I say I was one left to give birth to this disease with every flair. I have had carers tell me they wouldn't let a dog walk around like you have too.  I suggest HIDREDINITIS SUPPATIVA Gets noticed.  
    It cost more amd more life's a year fighting for help. I still work , but out if employment  at present time. Anyone I could possibly help with care please do message. Thanks all first time in 27 years I have been public about trauma i live. Peace ✌ out x

    SDP isn't paid with DLA. It's a disability premium paid with some of the old legacy benefits. What other benefits exactly does he claim? Does he live alone or with other adults?

    Is it also DLA he's claiming or PIP?
    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.

    He claims dla low for mobility.  And med to high mentally . And esa He lives on his own . I live around the corner from him. We have no children so still live separate.  Due to no room. And I have provided his care for past 15 years. I have never claimed carers allowance,  as I thought this interviened with severe disability premium.  I also have had to provide my time around working.

    He will not qualify with just low rate mobility DLA. He needs to be claiming mid or high rate care.
