Last year my son and I were made homeless we were living in a hotel but it wasn't in the best interest of my son so I sent him to live with a family member, I tried to secure a private accommodation paying £1000s in estate agent fees to be turned down every time, I put myself down on the local council waiting list to be told I'm not a priority. I secured myself a room in a bedsit which costs more then what our original home cost per month struggling to save, I work as a full time chef and am trying so hard to get out this situation the place I live now is full of drug users the police are always at the door I can't have my son stay for one night due to it not been safe nor would I want to subject him to that, every time we spend time together is the most precious time in the world to me and to him he is only 6 years old and I have been a single mom since he was a baby I have always worked since he was 10weeks old we have had an amazing life together and our love and bond is un breakable but every time I have to say good bye to him it feels like my heart is been ripped out I wake up every day grieving for him the pain is unimaginable I miss him so much I just want my life our life back we didn't deserve what happened to us last year I was a good Tennant and made my son and I a beautiful home. I have no family and I soon found out who my friends were when all this happened I have no support but I try my best to be a good citizen always working and paying taxes I hate the fact I'm setting up this page asking people to help me but when I returned home from work yesterday my room door had been kicked in and there were heroin addicts taking drugs in my room giving me abuse because I told them I was calling the police. I don't feel safe I just want my son back a proper home again I feel I can't move on with my life until we are in a home and together again. I have never felt pain like this. If you think you can help no matter how small please do even if it's a two bed home
