Hi my name is Kelly. 63yo service veteran who lives alone with my pets. Disabled after serving my country in war and now without any benefits after the DW&P took them. Suicide is now a real option

    Hi @kelly53

    I am really sorry to hear you are feeling so low, you are a member of our community and we appreciate you.

    If you are having thoughts of suicide, it is important that you discuss them with someone who is qualified to help. Please call the Samaritans on 116 123 (free) or email them at [email protected]

    You might also benefit from reading MIND’s information on how you can help yourself.

    If you feel that you may be an immediate danger to yourself, please call 999 or go to your local hospital right away.

    Sam

    @kelly53
    please ont take that descion, your life is worth living and you are respected by millions for the service you gave to the uk . I agree with Sam you need to seek help if your feeling that low. Think of your pets what would happen to them if you ended things.
    Have you tried speeking or met anyone from the exservices charities like the one Prince Harry represents I'm sure they would help you to get your PiP reinstated. 

    Hope things improve for you soon. And please feel free to chat some more .if you'd like
