New to benefits
Hi I'm from the Midlands. I have ehlers danlos syndrome, dysautonomia, irlens syndrome, dyslexia, dyspraxia and general anxiety with depression. These are a few of my comorbid conditions. I am also a mum to a 10 year old boy who is autistic. I have had a few jobs that I've enjoyed including teaching children and adult science with special educational needs. I currently am too poorly to work and volunteer with Ehlers Danlos Support UK. I attend many appointments due to my conditions and am currently on benefits to try and support me and my son financially. So I could use all the support and advice I can get.
