    Hi @jonviper123
    Welcome to the community, I am sorry to hear about your health struggles.  There are many members here who feel that they are isolated and forgotten and the good thing about the community is that we can bring people together to share experiences and make friends.

    Though times can be so tough, as you say, you have your family around you and you need to be here for them, if times get tough then you could consider speaking to the Samaritans about your mental health, they are there to listen and can be really helpful, you can call them on 116 123.  There is also lots of information on the MIND website.

    Are you claiming all the benefits that you are entitled to? It is worth taking a look at the benefits calculator to check.

    Join in on the community, a good place to start is the recent discussions where you can find all the latest posts.
