Needing support, unaware of my rights
Hello I am new. I have connected to the community because I am unaware of my rights. I do have a disability which is a condition of hearing voices. I don't know completely what it is. There has been no firm diagnosis. I am currently trying to get my life back on track. It is difficult. I am financially struggling and I am still unwell but I have lost a lot of my independence since I've been unwell. It is difficult to recover that. I am searching for housing closer to where there is more support for me. I am also waiting on benefit claims for sickness disability. It is difficult as I am sick now and they won't grant me anything there even though my doctor has provided me with sick notes. I have to wait I don't know how many months for it to come through. I have to get assessed by their people but the doctor has already checked me. To me it makes no sense.
