    Hi @Aldridgemarie, and welcome to the community. I'm so sorry to hear about your current situation, it sounds like things are really tough for you at the moment. 

    When did you find out about your PIP outcome, and did you try appealing? It would be a good idea to have a look at our online benefits calculator and check that you're receiving all that you're entitled to, as this may lead to some additional income.
