I'm so worried about my Health condition and putting on weight.

 Hi everyone, I have been hit by Universal Credit cuts and problems whilst in lockdown,  I also can't go into shops as I'm still shielding. I'm not sure if my sleep apnea is working or not as I only seem to get my machine checked out once a year. I don't know if I should check out my SD card in my machine, to see how things are going?

"They have now suggested my wife should give up her well paid job and  becomes sole  carer for my children. With many jobs becoming scarce, I don't consider this to be an option. Am I being unreasonable?"

Page for STUART G. a happily married parent of two young boys.

 Under the care of my Hospitals Lung Finction Clinic. Ive had problems with leaks and noise from my machine. Howrver I now think it's as good as I can get it. Recently been told a section 47 meeting needed to be held because my sleep apnea put my boys at risk? I do not believe this is true. I came back to this forum after several years to see if anyone else had experienced this? It seems I am the first....
