Just saying Hi 👋

Hi folks. My name is Niki. I’m a 51 year old mum of 2. I’ve suffered with mental health issues for over 30 years and physical difficulties for over 10 years. Our kids are 10 & 14! Yes I was a bit late having them, but they were worth the wait ❤️. Thank you for letting me join. It will be nice to meet you all (virtually of course). I’ve had loads of trouble with benefits etc. I would be very interested to hear you opinions on how I should go forward. Also making friends and hopefully being able to help and support some of you in some way 🤞🏼.

    Hi @Mamanoodle welcome to the forum. Lots of us here to talk to here, a wide range of conversations that you might want to join in with. What benefits are you having trouble with? There is great advice here for benefits from a couple of people who have great knowledge on those.
