    I'm doing an undergrad degree at the moment with fibro

    It's difficult, I won't lie to you, but it's really important to be open and honest with your course team and disability team. They can provide all kinds of support, but they need to know how they can help you

    i need to do my Access through distance learning as I lost my PIP (car and money) so cant afford travel and food at a normal college.
    is it hard because of fibro fog or exhausting because of the hours put in ?

    I'm sorry to hear that. Disability benefits is a not a nice system.

    Both, but I'm entitled to extensions whenever I ask basically so it makes it a serious amount easier for me. Sometimes I crash and really struggle for a while, and sometimes I just cannot get my head to focus on anything or I can't read and things like that so it does make it more difficult, but disability services are there to listen to what your difficulties are so they can help you figure out how you can study despite having such difficulties
