Hi, my name is Jomar1!
I have a number of Illnesses and my GP and surgeon are impressed that I am managing to continue to hold down my job full time. I am getting to a stage where I'm worn out by Friday and unable to do anything all weekend and my pain is increasing. My only worry is if I stop work would I be able to claim benefits as my spouse works. He runs a small coffee shop, we are council tenants and by no means well off. My financial situation is looked after by Stepchange debt management, I'd be lost with out them. Apart from the physical I suffer from depression and am worried because he works I will not be entitled. If I can claim the amount of benefits I get will not cover what I need to lay out. Everything is so confusing and unclear. I tried to fill in a calculator and it said I wasn't entitled! But was told I had done it incorrectly
