    @mikehughescq I don't understand. I just came across this info on Google, I'm not sure what you mean by paying? I'm sure there's some points might be useful to some people.

    Anyone reading this thread please do not pay for any advice ever. All advice, especially benefits advice should be free. Upon searching for info I came across this website. There's some good advice (free). I think they charge if you want them to represent you... But we don't. The advice is in layman's terms which suits me.. And is easy to read. No fancy terminology etc ? Anything useful to me I always try to pass it on. That's all I'm doing folks ?

    Hi Mike, my name is Tricia... I suffer from depression and Fibro myalgia. I'm just a normal person, friendly albeit a bit naive. I don't have much confidence but found this forum while googling, Ive only started commenting on things and interacting again, but I do try to help people. Ive taken a lot of your advice and it's been great. <moderator removed - personal attacks not allowed on the community>. Confidence in myself is knocked again. Take care.

    @janer1967 thankyou you are lovely and have a great way with people.
    @mikehughescq I will not rethink any comments. I came on here for advice and support. If the moderators need to delete my comments they will. Remember there are people on here that are very very vulnerable. They shouldn't  be criticised. <Moderator removed - personal attacks not allowed on the community>. It requires not only knowledge but a certain way with words and rapport with people.

    Just to let you know, we've removed some parts of your comments that constituted personal attacks against another member, which violates our house rules. If you have a concern about the community or any of its members, or want to discuss anything further, please feel free to email us on [email protected] at any time, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

    As you've pointed out "Anyone reading this thread please do not pay for any advice ever. All advice, especially benefits advice should be free.". It seems as though this is what mikehughescq was trying to point out, rather than trying to criticise you personally.

    That being said, we do understand that it can be hard to determine the tone used in written comments. This is a reminder to all members to ensure that you're mindful of your tone when communicating with other members. As you've pointed out @beesmummy798, you can never quite know what position someone is in when you reply to them, so it's important to keep things friendly and safe.

    As this discussion has now run its course, the thread will remain closed.
