I have fibromyalgia, severe osteoarthritis especially in my ankle, major depression, wanted to return to work as a health professional but my ill health plus dyslexia and probable adhd makes it very difficult.  Sick of my life and got rejected for pip a while ago.

    Hi @Njb
    Welcome to the community, I am sorry to hear you are having such a rough time.

    Did you appeal the PIP decision?

    Many decisions that go to appeal do get changed so it is always worth appealing.  Im sorry you are feeling so disillusioned by it all.  We understand that it can be a difficult and stressful time.

    How can we help?

    We have an employment advisor who may be able to offer some support and also mental health and chronic pain categories that you might like to look through.

    Hello @Njb and welcome to the community. I'm glad you have found us, but I am troubled to hear you sounding so very low. A great many of us here know what that feeling is like - a great many - so you are very much among friends here.
    @Sam_Scope has given you some useful links already, so please try to have a look at them, but if you want to begin by chatting or even ranting about your circumstances, we're here and we're listening.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard
