I find those dhs websites to be clear as mud. just work through it and if you need help, bub hub is here! feel better soon xx
Maybe you can call back and speak to someone who is willing to guide you in the right direction? "you have to do it online" is pretty crappy "advice".
If possible it might be worth going in person to talk to them. The staff at the Centrelink office near my place have always been really lovely when I have gone in.
Feeling suicidal is really concerning.... Can you see your GP ASAP about this? Please remember that there are people out there who love you and will support you.
I got the ' do it online ' thing too. I told them i didnt know what i was even applying for and they told me well if your not entitled to it you won't get it...i feel your pain OP!
I haven't read all the responses but I couldn't read and run. I'm so sorry he's stooped this low. He clearly doesn't care about or have respect for you. Please make some plans to get out. Can you go have a chat with a GP or someone else about your suicidal feelings? You deserve so much more...

You can get initial advice over the phone, but to get the most useful help its best to see them face to face and its all free.
Your husband is abusive and nasty and I'm really worried for you while he's there. Please reach out to the above services - they can help put a plan in place to keep you safe and they can put you in touch with other services if necessary.
Big, big hugs.
Thanks girls. Off to GP this arvo to chat. I think I need stronger anti depressants.
