Hi all. Ive had a rather bad time of it for the last few yrs and its left its mark. Im on medication for generalized anxiety. Have seen therapists. I dont go out on my own and fear everything when i do. I have a toddler so going out is important for him. I also suffer wth sleeping problems and ptsd. Lots of lables. What help is there for someone like me. I dont see myself as disabled. But my condition is disabling

    Hi princessapplehead and welcome

    Many of us have hidden disabling conditions but we are not disabled physically.

    In the first place try the B&W self test for PIP

    have a look around this site and come back with any questions

    Hi @princessapplehead, and welcome! I've moved this post into our ask a mental health advisor category, where somebody will hopefully be able to assist you further. It might also be a good idea to look at the above link provided by CR if you want to find out more about financial support.

    Hi @princessapplehead I can hear how difficult things are for you at the moment and how important it is to you to get out for your son. In terms of the help for you mental health the advice I would give is to make sure you are accessing the help and support that you need but you mention that you have already seen therapists and are medicated. I am just wondering if you can tell me a little more about this and what has and hasn't worked for you? Rebecca
