I have been living on £57 a week for about 4 months now. I can't find a job, I'm depressed and mentally unstable. 19 and still living with my parents. The job centre have now decided I'm not showing enough evidence of my job searching to claim the money I need. They put me on a college course which costs me £15 a week to get there. I pay my parents £20 a week for rent, £10 a week goes on my pets for their food, that leaves me with about £12 for the general daily things people need.
I have given up my favourite hobby which is horse riding, I can't go out anymore as I can't afford it and have barely any friends. I don't have anything to look forward to and can't even afford something for my dads birthday let alone any Christmas presents I have to find.
I am having to sell most of the things I own I.e my anime, figures, games and dvds. I've already had to give one of my cats to my mum as I can't afford him anymore.
I'm also transgender and I need to have the surgery in order to be the real me. but I can't even afford to live a week, let alone save up to get a token and bottom surgery.
anything given is really appreciated. thank you.
