I have Aspergers, along with anxiety and depression and I have gone on hunger strike  because of the poor treatment from my council.

    Hi BillyG,

    Welcome to the community. 

    I've watched your video and I'm sorry to hear about the situation you're in. I'm really concerned to hear that you're on hunger strike and have stopped your meds, and I hope you reconsider.

    You're not alone in the problems you've had with your assessments and the treatment from DWP and the council. On this community you'll not be ignored. Many members here have had battles to get the support they need, and we'd really like to support you through this difficult time.

    Please take care.

    Thank you for watching, Alex. I have tried everything. I have even been turned down for counselling twice in the last few months. I have no other route to try and get my rights and respect restored.
