Hi my name is Kelly. 63yo service veteran who lives alone with my pets. Disabled after serving my country in war and now without any benefits after the DW&P took them. Suicide is now a real option

    please ont take that descion, your life is worth living and you are respected by millions for the service you gave to the uk . I agree with Sam you need to seek help if your feeling that low. Think of your pets what would happen to them if you ended things.
    Have you tried speeking or met anyone from the exservices charities like the one Prince Harry represents I'm sure they would help you to get your PiP reinstated. 

    Hope things improve for you soon. And please feel free to chat some more .if you'd like
