    Hi @lynnD welcome to the community.

    Im really sorry to hear that you are struggling so much, are you getting any support?

    If you don't feel you can keep yourself safe right now, seek immediate help.

    • go to any hospital A&E department (sometimes known as the emergency department)
    • call 999 and ask for an ambulance if you can't get to A&E
    • ask someone else to contact 999 for you or take you to A&E immediately

    If you need some support right now, but don't want to go to A&E, here are some other options for you to try:

    You can also call the Samaritans on 116 123

    We also have lots of information on appeals that may help you, we have this video below and if you would like to speak to someone at the Scope helpline they could possibly support you more regarding benefits. You can call them on 0808 800 3333.
