Im new hi.

Hi everyone

I have 4 children. My eldest has asd,dysprexia,dyslexia. My step daughter has very bad mental health and she is home schooled through cahms and hospital both claim pip and dla and i main carer. Plus a 9 year old and a toddler.
It looks like i may have ddd, after what i thought was siatica plus some damage to my pelvis, im being sent to orthapendics although they dont know which direction i will go. Im scared that this will get worst. My kids depend on me so much i cant end up in more pain or else i wont be able to care for them.
