    Hello there @sammyp7146 and welcome to the community, thanks for joining and explaining a little bit about yourself :)

    I can see you've already posted in our Work and Employment category, so please do take a look at the resources I've linked there, as they might be useful for you. 
    I am hoping just to find something as maybe to do with art or start my own business for photography
    This sounds fantastic, have you spoken to anyone at your college about working within that field, or about working self-employed, or starting a business? 

    Scope has advice about starting a business as well as the pros and cons of working self-employed, and how this can affect your benefits, if you receive any. 


    Just so that I understand more fully, can you explain what you mean here, when you say:
    I am seeking help to find a stay at home job because of pasted events makes my panic and I don’t like leaving the house after my adult last year 
    Do you feel like you're getting enough support for your conditions at the moment? Are these feelings something you've spoken about with your GP?

    Let us know if you feel we can help further with anything. I've also merged both your introduction posts into one, so that it's easier for our members to find it, and to chat with you :smile:
