    Hi l am 60yrs old just got married for the first time in June this year.
    I suffer depression,anxiety and panic attacks. 
    Just had PIP assessment waiting on result.
    I am a diabetic type 2 injecting twice a day ,have chronic back pain.
    Since getting married l have lost benefits hubby works 24hrs and they have stopped my esa and then gave me it back with deductions. Don't get housing benefit or council tax  l am sitting wondering how l am going to pay my bills and eat so l am stressed out my head.
    Been to Citizens Advice this morning they say because hubby done some extra hrs is why we are getting nothing .

    Hi Chloe they have all my finances hopefully in had.
    We are not entitled to working tax credits because hubby doesn't work 30 odd hrs he only dose 24th ,
    He lost his PIP tribunal they are going to do that for him and that is about that .
    I have someone who is dealing with my debt that l can't afford now .x
