Where’s the justice

It’s an absolute disgrace that they have changed it for widows with children it was paid until the youngest child reached sixteen now it’s only 18 months … my babies are 5 years old I have Graves’ disease … so I can’t work but I’m not entitled to any disability or sickness benefit because my condition is not recognised… and my bereavement payment stops in January … so I’m left on universal credit which I can barely survive on and I’m getting into debt … there’s no other help or benefits full stop … so after my husband died at 36 years old last year I’m left a widowed single mum struggling to get by … yet drug dealers and alcoholics get a free ride … I worked all my life never claimed a penny till my husband died … so angry
