Hi guys

I need some advice and know what can I do and what kind of help may I ask.

I'm 23 years and I was 20 when I knew.

I feel pretty good, but I often feel tired, if I don't sleep 8 hrs/day I go crazy. I'm waiter and it is exhausting. You come back home and just can't walk.

I think I'm starting to feel the burden of disease, and I know I have to do something to slow down the effects of infection.

I wish to study and have a good job that do not kill me, I also have to think about my health and try to avoid anything could accelerate the progression.

I'm now taking prezista with ritonavir and I have 600 cd4, the viral load is zero.

But I need to know if there is some possibility to get a financial help and reduce the hrs of work. I wanna start to study, and to buy some healthy food.

I feel pretty alone, I don't have any support that we need.

I can't hold this situation, is too much...

Good to hear your virus is under control. Depending on where you live there maybe a local support group that may be able to help you with isolation and advice on staying heathy as well as options for financing your studies.

Applying for Personal Independence Payment depends on your personal health situation.  You can find out more here - http://www.gov.uk/pip/overview< . There is a long delay in the processing of claims at the moment.

If you want to study you can find information here - http://www.gov.uk/browse/education/student-finance< .
