    Hi @19steven68 :) It's been good to see you around on the community! I've moved your post into our 'start here and say hello' category so that it'll be easier for other members to say hi to you. 

    Are you receiving enough support to help you manage your mental and physical health issues at the moment? 

    There's usually someone around for a chat, so you've come to the right place!
