    Are you sure about that? You didnt have to provide medical records or go through the job centres medical staff before..did that change? It obviously helps if applications are backed up by doctors/professional reports/something other than your own word,but its money to help with care needs not to do with employment so its different to the incap/'employment support' allowances,I think..

    I think the internal assessments are just for the ESA.. but when I checked online and with my advisor that was the information I was given. Although, it wouldn't surprise me if they misinformed me.. it wouldn't be the first, and certainly not the last time!

    Hey Jenna,
    I'm in a very similr situation- im jobless and on June 30th I will also be homeless... =[

    Is there anyway you can take your course to part time based on your circumstances?
    If you can prove that you are getting a maximum of 16 hours a week education, by filling out a form and getting your tutor to write you a letter; you are totally eligible to claim for both jobseekers allowance and housing benefit. As well as that, you should see your nearest council- being a single, young female about to be homeless you will get some kind of emergency accomodation. It might be a bedsit for now, but it's better than nothing.

    Even after that point, if you find somewhere private to rent, some councils have a scheme where they will gaurantee your deposit. To go with it, if it is unfurnished the council, YMCA and job centre all have either grants for furniture, or schemes to get it uber cheap.

    Some housing associations offer similar services to the council if you are to become homeless in 28 days or less, so you should check those out as well.

    Hope you get it sorted x

    PS: I saw on here that someone said to apply for DLA.. unfortunately, you now have to not only provide your medical records from the doctors for proof of this, but you now have to go throught the job centres own medical staff to get it. The other option is ESA (Employment support allowance) which is the replacement for Incapacity Benefit- and has exactly the same application route as DLA. I was refused applications to both of these things, despite being on medication for depression and an anxiety disorder which, tbh has left me pretty incapable of I don't really think it's easy to get on either of these anymore =[
    Alos, if you were to be accepted onto either of these, I think the 16 hour a week rule still applies for any work/volunteering/educational training.

    try visiting there's some self help guides on there with techniques on breathing and controlling panic etc. I've been sent there by a doctor today, and I feel better already knowing I have more control than I though!

    If you search Panic Attacks, then you want the topics with white page icons.. the rest are mecdical doctor jargon.

    I find life drawing really hard- Im not good with people or faces, when it cme being realistic.. I tend to end up making abstract mess or mechanical types instead....

    Good for you PTM :)

    I like to feel like I have a routine, so although they arent always the most pleasant days, makes me feel settled, sounds a lil odd but im sure you get the meaning. I just evil PCOS monsters didnt make them disappear, and re-appear at unconveinient times!

    These photos are beautif8ul, who cares if some self-titled pro doesn't think so :P

    At the end of the day, art is always down to a matter of opinion-theres no wrongs and rights, and theres no definitive argument!

    I think these photos are great. And now I have an urge to go break into some abandoned buildings and rekindle my naughty-kinda-stolen-photos streak hehe.


    still waiting for camptertess to post her tattoos of epic proportions :D

    ANd rainbowwarrior....i am sorry to hear that, it seems like a lovely ideo for a tattoo, something with a real meaning. Similarly, I had my tattoo as rememberance for a friend I lost x

    Its actually a bit tidier than usual, covered with uni work and computery stuff. And that mark on the floor is a stain from where our friend dropped a red hot LASAGNE on my boyfriends bass guitar. THAT wasnt fun!
