    Just saying hi, @redstony, and welcome to the community. We're glad to have you.
    Can you tell us a little more about yourself and the difficulties you're having? It will make it easier to help and advise.
    Warmest best wishes to you

    Hello @redstony. I'm very sorry that this is coming to you rather late at night. I would have preferred to respond much sooner.
    I am very, very sorry to hear of your struggle and concerns, and hope that we may be able to help you. It is quite possible that your post will soon be moved to a part of the forum that will be a better location for you, but in the meanwhile you might want to check out some of the links printed in white on the purple background lower down the page. Because you mention ESA in particular, I'm going to slot in here the link to 'Employment issues, finances and ESA
    Have a look and see if there's anything useful.
    In the meanwhile, stay in touch. We're a safe, friendly place where you can say pretty much anything you want and ask anything you want, and - though we may disappear for a few hours - we're here and listening.
    Warmest best wishes to you, always,
