I'd love some advice right about now. I've just finished my undergraduate degree and am waiting for my results, and I'm a couple of months behind everybody else because of bad health.
Does anyone have advice regarding getting benefits, since I am waiting for hospital appointments later this month and am in such constant pain that I don't think I could confidently consider myself fit enough to work (definitely not a full time job at any rate). I'm getting more scans of my lower abdomen and might need surgery, but everything is so up in the air for the next month or so that I don't quite know what to do.
On top of all this, I've had difficult mental health issues for the past 9 or 10 months (from a condition that's already been around for nearly 5-6 years).
Would it be best to apply for Universal Credit, Jobseekers or some sort of 'unfit for work' benefit?
