    H Joanne,

    I'm sorry to hear this. I'm not sure what your question is here. If you could tell us what you need help with i'm sure someone will help answer any questions you have.

    Hi Joanne I'm devastated for you, u also don't say how old you are, I'm presuming your wondering if you can claim any benefits to help with your disability, I'm sure that depending on your age it shouldn't be unobtainable, I do think that you should return to your GP and ask for help, physiotherapy at a heart smart clinic would help tremendously and getting you in to see a councillor for your depression, I'm also surmising that your weight is maybe more than is healthy for you so seeing a dietician would also be good.

    Look forward to hearing your views on my comments and hope I haven't offended you, hi Denise

    Hi Joanne

    I'm happy to se you've a couple of replies already.

    Life must be very difficult for you, can you let us know if you're on any benefits at all at the moment and if so what they are so we can possibly offer you some more advice.

    All the best

    Wendy x
