    Hello @td43 Pleased to me you welcome. I would suggest have a look at our benefits posts and threads.

    For information and advice.

    Also have a look at What Benefits am I entitled to.

    Have you also looked at the DWP websites as well they have a lot of information and advice.

    Hope that helps

    Take care

    Hello @td43 and a warm welcome to the community. Glad you have found us, and sorry you're in difficulties.
    Could you tell us what it is that makes you struggle? Do you have a particular diagnosis, for example? It might help us to help you if we understand a little better.
    Warmest best wishes to you
    Richard

    Hey, I do not have a specific diagnosis I am certain I have a learning disability I have found things like studying and holding jobs very difficult and have taken longer to grasp things than the usual person. I am just about to lose my job again...and I have felt very ignored...I also do not consider myself lazy...if I am having common problems everywhere I feel something sis wrong with me...this will be my fourth probation i will be failing.

    Hi @td43 and thank you for getting back to me. I do understand that you are having a difficult time, and I do want very much to help :smile:
    Would it not be wise to see your doctor, explain what is happening and try to get a diagnosis? Or have you tried already?
    Best to you,
    Richard

    Hi @td43
    At this point I'm honestly not sure what to suggest to you for the best, but I'm only the first to respond and there will be others :smile: It might also be worth your having a look at MIND, the mental health charity, here https://www.mind.org.uk/
    For now, please stay in touch, and I will try to find some advice to help you.
    Very best to you,
    Richard

    Welcome to the community, @td43, and sorry to hear about your current situation. If you haven't already, you may like to give the online benefits calculator a try to see what you may be entitled to.
