Hello I am new here and like many others glad to have found this forum.

I have a long history of mental illness, I'm afraid because it was caused by childhoon abuse.

I have been lucky in that I have had therapy,which took a long time coming inasmuch as I could not deal with my problems until I was in my thirties - mental illness aht is part and parcel of a person is hard to see as anything other than normal even if as I did I knew I wasnt right.

Anyway I still have issues, anxiety is the main one, and a touch of paranoia - I get issues with my body too but by and large am a lot better than I was before the therapy.

I am 45 and married nearly 25 years (poor s*d) with 2 cats and no job but I do voluntary work.

I am hoping that DSS will renew my DLA - as I had an episode so to speak and didnt get it in in time so they have suspended my payments.

I am on incapacity as well and that form has come too, but I am more with it this time so will get that one in in time!

I hope to get to know poeple better and hope I can help others too,

I get depressed as well and sometimes hate myself - life is very strange as they say.

Blessings!

Nora

Hi Norabella and welcome to the Forum. It's great to have you here. I too am waiting for a decision on DLA - not optimistic but as you say that's life.

As Companion says, there's a good bunch of people here and plenty of friends to be made as well as loads of support and help. Have a look around and when you're comfortable dive in!
