Yes, lost every job I've had due to my mh. Not worked this time for over a decade. Is hard to get back once you're out but if you can't do it, you can't and think you know when you're at that point x

Are you on universal credit or do you get disability allowance. Not sure what I’ll be entitled to. Very scary

I get ESA and PIP, not had the switch to universal credit yet here. But I think if you were to apply now it would be UC. I hope you can get advice help from eg CAB, agencies like that can help a lot xx
