Hi everyone, I have been wanting to do a course in acupuncture for many years, but due to my health I kept putting it off. I have Lupus, Sjogrens, Fibromyalgia and some organ damage.
I went for an interview at the college and was accepted. I am obviously a little nervous about going off benefits and starting a 3 year course. The course attendance is only every other weekend and the rest of the work is from home, otherwise I wouldn't have even applied.
I am so tired with the benefit system and the never knowing if your going to pass or fail. I do get DLA and ESA. Does anyone know if I will be able to get any other help apart from maintenance loans? I am hoping I may at least be able to get DLA. I was awarded that indefinitely. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Love to all
