    I'm really sorry to hear you're worrying about this. Have you contacted the DWP to request a home visit? If you really can't make it down, make sure to let them know.

    As a member of our community we'll do whatever we can to support and advise you. However, if you are having thoughts of suicide, it is important that you discuss them with someone who is qualified to help. Please call the Samaritans on 116 123 (free) or email them at [email protected] 

    You might also benefit from reading MIND’s information on how you can help yourself. If at any time, you feel that you may be an immediate danger to yourself, please call 999 or go to your local hospital right away. 

    Sincerely, 

    Adrian
