I am currently:

My parents are in a similar boat; my mum had a brain injury a few years ago, and although my dad works, he doesn't earn a lot, and it isn't really enough. My mum isn't really entitled to very much (I think she claimed ESA for a year though, but then it was stopped) and it seems pretty unfair, given that it's not her fault or choice not to work.

I would say, looking into working is great if you can do it, and a lot of people find work helpful, but don't beat yourself up if you can't cope with it either.

It doesn't matter where you come from; it matters where you go.
No-one gets remembered for the things they didn't do.
We won't all be here this time next year,
so while you can take a picture of us.
We're definitely going to hell,
but we'll have all the best stories to tell.
