Hi i have an over-active thyroid also 4 children to look after, two boys age 12 and 15 years also my two granddaughters age 5 and 7 years old. I am a single parent and find it exhausting running around after the children 24/7 . I had applied for E.S,A as i feel constantly tired all the time' have frequent panic attacks and dizzy spells, also get Migraine headaches which are crippling. I was told by the DWP that i did not get enough points to pass there medical and to sign on for job seekers ?
They have stopped my claim now and i do not know what to do but put in an appeal .
I Really do NOT have the energy to look for work or be running around here and there looking for work or training courses as i just about have enough energy to look after the children.? Clean the house, ect ect.
I am so upset, depressed, and feeling really ill with worry as i am afraid that this will put me into a really bad health and i will end up losing my children ,? If i had the energy and did not suffer so much with migraines and the drowsy affects of sleeping tablets i take each night to help me sleep this would not be a problem. I am really needing some advise as i am 52 years old and not able for all this stress, i could probably even get evicted now because they no longer help with my rent' or council tax ,i am receiving no money.
I am also going through the Menopause and the up,s and downs can be horrific' despite taking the H.R.T. But out of love for my kids and grandchildren i just struggle through each day and do the best i can to meet all there needs, and if i am unwell my older daughter steps in and help,s out every now and again.
Can anyone please advise me what i can do ?
