    Hi @itsafeething, and welcome to the community! Great to have you here.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. I'm so sorry to hear about what you've been through in the past.

    I hope we can help you: do you mind clarifying the last part of your post, about your benefits? Have you been awarded PIP and ESA? Do let us know if there's anything we can help you with, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

    Hello Fiona, @itsafeething, and a warm welcome to the community. You have certainly been 'through the mill', haven't you? My respect to you because you have kept on going, kept on fighting. Well done, you, for all of that and for your brave post.
    I'm just the first to respond to your post today but others will be along who may be able to give you better advice. Have you any thoughts about what you would like to have help with?
    You matter here, Fiona.
    Here and listening,
    Warmest best wishes,

    Hello again, Fiona, @itsafeething, and it's good to hear from you again. Truthfully, I thought you had probably only scratched the surface - there's a lot of reading between the lines of your post. And I am so very, very sorry you have had such a tough time. It hardly bears thinking about.

    I'm going to 'name drop' a lady here who I am hoping is still part of the organisation, @KirstenNutritionAdvisor and hopefully she will get back to you about your nutrition issues.

    You might try the Dealing with chronic pain forum to connect with others who have fibromyalgia and thyroid problems. It's here https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/chronicpain, and you could look through the links on the coloured part lower down the page, see if there is anything there that looks promising. The categories, such as 'Dealing with chronic pain' are where discussions take place and you will find posts among them that relate to your conditions and members who will be only too glad to chat with you.

    There is a forum for Mental Health discussion and advice also, which is here https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/mental-health-issues

    I hope that's of some help. In the meanwhile I'm here, listening.
    Are there any other physical conditions that you haven't mentioned, and that you might like to find advice/support on?

    Very warmest best wishes to you, Fiona,
