    As benefits experts have said, there's no reason for you to lose your benefits.

    Maybe you could speak to your GP about your feelings of anxiety.

    You will visit your husband in hospital over Christmas so you'll be together some of the time.

    It is certainly a tough time for you @spinbobbin do you have any family or friends to support you through this time?
