I  had my first stroke at 5 years old

I  had my first stroke at 5 years old, by the time i hit 30 I had 4 more and lost most of my sight and wanted a career so went to college and university.  Then started back to work at 40. Setting up a support group claiming working tax credit for myself with my equally disabled husband. It took 4 years to get the disability element and 7 k a year they simply would not pay.

That includes rent which dropped 50% and frequently would be delayed a month which then put my payments out. Driven into debt and under constant threat of eviction we just about managed by putting all of our DLA into the rent and now I’m facing universal credit with a 20% drop in income and the loss of the businesses we started. We don’t meet the minimum income.
