Hi, I have SLE, sjorgrens, fibromyalgia and autoimmune hepatitis. I get full mobility dla and medium care.
I was turned down for esa as my husband works and I haven't for over 4 years (we have now eaten through all our savings), and we have also just lost our tax credits. But the money he brings in is not enough to cover all our bills and monthly costs despite tightening our belts beyond belief.
I just spoke to the disability advisor at the job centre as I feel I have no choice but to work, although the diseases are still very active. But she told me that I probably wouldn't be able to get a job as I am too ill and considered unemployable, although she has begrudgingly agreed to see me in September when she is back from an operation.
BUT I NEED TO BE BRINGING IN MONEY ASAP
I can't stop crying as I know having a job would put me back to square one physically, but I am not eligible to claim anything, and we are starting to get back into debt each month.
Please help if you can as I desperately need advice, thanks x
