What do I do now?
Hi. I have fibromyalgia and had decompression surgery for Chiari Malformation. I am 63, obviously not old enough for State Pension. I don’t work, because some days I have trouble even getting out of bed. My Husband is 72 and retired. We live off of his Pension and he does volunteer driving. I have applied for pip, but didn’t get it. I had savings, but have had to spend it on top up, for my mothers care home. I have almost run out of savings, now. What should I do now! Am sorting my Mum out, now. But what should I do for myself. I have sleep apnoea & wear a mask at night, I suffer depression. I don’t get state pension for another 3 years. Cathy
