Hi, my name is max123!

I am 48 years old and have Hashimotos disease, under active thyroid,obstructive sleep apnoea and central sleep apnoea which has been diagnosed in the last 4 months. I have treatment for everything via nhs however I had to leave my job and family business recently as I just cannot function the same anymore as although I have felt some benefit of cpap treatment I just cannot put a shift of work in and any stress of any description makes me ill which is linked to my Hashimotos and recently had a day in hospital with chest pains as a result of stress. Can anyone here advise me am I able to apply for help of any description in my current situation as I have to put my health and complex situation first but losing my income is a shock , I also have numerous allergies and intolerances too which makes day to day normality quite hard. I would hope in time I can once again work .
Many thanks
