    Hi @wellington37 and a warm welcome to the community. I am glad you have found us.
    I am not an expert in this particular area, but we do have people who are and I have no doubt they will be in touch with you soon. Bear with us, if you can, and I will be here, listening, if there is anything more you wish to tell me or to ask me.
    Before I retired, doing a job I found very stressful, my wife would say to me each morning "Don't let the bu**ers grind you down!" Try, anyway, wellington.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard

    You might get a disability element in your Pension Credit.  Have you thought about claiming PIP?

    You could phone Age UK helpline for advice.
