How can I be a scrounger when I had no idea benefits existed? I had no idea about D.L.A. (Disability Living Allowance), no one told me anything about that and all I wanted to do was leave Tesco, as working nights was doing my head in. I knew it was making me worse but I was so worried I'd be on Job Seekers. I mean, I couldn't take care of myself at all, I'd holes in my shoes, sores on my feet.
