Hi, my name is cheniserowenaknox!

I have multiple disabilities and my partner David too and 2 of my children, My career was in mental health before I became to unwell to work anymore, now David and i care for each other and the children at home, we are not in receipt of all the benefits possible but we get along and I really don’t want to take too much from the state; I hope to go back to work someday when our youngest goes into full time school

    Welcome to the community @cheniserowenaknox
    Though I appreciate your good thoughts, the benefits are there to help and support you through tougher times. You can find a benefits calculator here to see what you could be entitled to.

    Thank you, we went through the pip process for David and he got refused first time, despite his problems being more obvious than mine, but he’s going through the debt relief order process also so we’d rather wait until that’s over to try again because it will affect his eligibility, I don’t get the council tax discount but I do like paying it, i am an oddball I know, I do think it may be part of my autism however
