    Hi sarapainfree Why dont you try claiming PIP I would get in touch with the CAB to see what you can claim. Trying to work with fibromyalgia is very hard many of us have had to finish because of the fibro some have been sacked because of fibro. those that do continue to work struggle as you have found. do whats right for you find out what help their is for you. take care gentle hug xx

    Hi Sara, I don't know who you spoke to but the fact your husband is working shouldn't make any difference to your claiming PIP. My husband works, and when I first claimed PIP I was also working; it is not means tested. When I had to stop work I also claimed ESA and was put in the support group. Try looking on the Internet at benefit sites for help. Good luck. x
