hello. My husband has just left me and my 2 boys 1 and 4. Because I had post natal depression after second baby as I was looking after my dying grandad who passed in April this year. He died in my arms. It hit me hard. Husband didn’t understand my mental health issues. And hes said he needs someone better as im a junkie. Im devestated. Ive no family. Ive just applied for universal credit. Is there anything I am missing?I was told I get free prescription and school meals. Dont know how I will survive this..thanks, lyndsay x
