I don't want this to sound like a sob story because my feelings on this are sometimes devastating. I live in a house I rent for over 15 years, 14 years of that was with no heating, just a gas fire. The house is so damp, full of mould and it doesn't seem to bother my landlady as long as she's getting her money. I've been to so many agencies and my local council for help but I don't qualify for any. I work so hard and am trying to save as much as I can to move but it is slow. I suffer with anxiety, panic attacks, OCD and stress related depression. Last year I suffered a breakdown which left me ironically not being able to leave my house, I couldn't drive my car for fear it would breakdown. I even walked for 3 hours to a hospital appointment rather than use my car. I managed to get some help from my Dr. I had CBT, regulating my breathing etc which eventually got me back to a manageable state and back to work. I still have the attacks but a lot of the time I can pull myself out of them. I am trying to move nearer my children for their support and also so I can support them. The funds I require are to kick start the move as you have to have a months rent upfront, a months bond and then agency fee's. If I am successful in receiving any funds and it goes over, the remaining money will go to the Official Haemophilia Society. My Grandson was born with this condition and I try to support in any way I can. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story.
