I am not having fun financially, we are just about keeping her heads above water as it stands. But its getting tough and its just gotten tougher.
Today I recieved my ESA, its gone within 5 minutes and I wish I could say I pissed it up a wall, but I didn’t, after rent, electric and food it was gone. Alright I could live with that, still no other money from the government though
Then I get a letter, I owe someone somewhere money for something and they are taking it off my ESA, I get £115 a week, they are taking £40 a week, that is roughly 35% of the money I receive. We are struggling already, taking that is our electricity a week now.
I was not a happy bunny, I will try and sort it all out tomorrow, because I couldn’t trust myself to speak to anyone today, without either crying or yelling, neither of which is going to help me.
Added to this, the lovely £10 credit I got from British Gas, is still not added on to my meter, because the post office dont know how still, despite me walking them through it twice.
Thank God I am releatively stable at the moment because this could have really pushed me over the edge
