Can I receive any other benefits?

Hi this is Alex. I am currently in receipt of the lower rate care component of DLA which I receive monthly. Since I have been married ( 8 years) I have lost a considerable amount that really helped me. I have recently tried to apply for ESA but was refused as I said I am working which I am but only for myself and part time as a gardener ( which could be classed as therapeutic earnings) Can I receive any other benefits? I sense the outcome may be no but it's worth asking.
