I have had to leave my job as I just cannot manage anymore with the commute and work itself. Does anyone know if I am entitled to claim any benefits?

    Welcome to the forum sjs65. Sorry to hear that work and commuting has become unmanageable for you.

    You can find information about benefits which you may be able to claim here:

    You may find it helpful to contact your local Citizens Advice Centre. Also, our advisors on the Versus Arthritis helpline may be able to give you some information and advice. You can reach them on 0800 5200 520, Monday-Friday 9am-8pm.

    With best wishes,

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
