Feel like the country doesn't care I'm disabled
Hi everyone - I’m 20, I suffer with arthritis, depression and anxiety, while trying to care for my younger sister, and all my pets (goldfish, ferret and guinea pigs).
I’m an immigrant (From US to U.K.) so it’s been a tough journey for me to possibly get benefits, which will be cancelled in 2yrs time and I will have to do all over again because of visas. It’s hard to not let the depression get me down when it feels like the country doesn’t care I am disabled. Does anyone else feel this way, even if you were born here? If I was not entitled to benefits (you must request home office to allow you) I would never be allowed them.
I’m hoping this community will help me realise I am not alone!
Thank you all.
