Hello Abdaisy1 and welcome to the community.

It's good to hear that you are able to keep working at your part time job despite the difficulties. Have you discussed this with your mental health team recently?

I wonder if it would also be a good idea to try and talk to your social worker again regarding your benefits. The link below also has information you may find helpful.
