Babygirl, this is an international community and disability definitions and support vary from country to country and jurisdiction to jurisdiction. I see that you are in Nova Scotia. You might want to start by finding as much out as you can here. (click on the blue “here”) You might also want to call your closest provincial Community Services office. (That’s a link as well.)

You should definitely go talk to your doctor about this, and if possible, to your disease specialist. They will know more than any of us here do, about whether you would qualify for disability assistance or not.

Please let us know how you get on with trying to get help.

All the best to you
