No option to create spaces and No Personal Space - help?

I have Confluence and I've looked in the documentation but cannot figure out why I have neither a personal space, nor the option to create spaces. I can only create pages within the spaces I'm a part of. Any assistance would be appreciated, I've included a screenshot below for reference. This is the menu under my profile icon, you can see the Personal Space field is missingScreen Shot 2022-04-22 at 2.02.32 PM.png

Welcome to the Community!

You won't have the option to create a personal space if you already have one, or the admins have blocked it.

Create (main) space permission is a global setting - you need to be in a group that has the right to create spaces.

To get this permission, you will need to talk to your administrators.

Hi @Caite Lynch ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

If you can't create personal or other space, probably your user has not the right global permissions. There's a specific permission for Personal Space and another for creating spaces.

Please take a look here for further info about that

Hope this helps,
