Hi, my name is Alisonmcg76!
Beyond stressed, I’m an autistic female with two autistic daughters, I work a part time job as a cleaner, a job which I took so I could care for them. But now that they’re older I needed to get a full time job as mine just won’t cut it. I have applied everywhere and get refused for the most part even an interview. Now to boot they are kicking autistic kids off of Dla which means at some point my children won’t receive any assistance and I will need to be able to pick up the slack, but how am I supposed to do that if I can’t get another job?! I have always worked and I have always worked hard and except for their DLA I claim no benefits at all, I feel like the system has failed them
