Struggling to work full time and live independently
I'm struggling to work full time and look after my home due to fatigue and pain caused by CP. My boss has said he can't give me part-time hours and I've been looking for part time work for the past year with no success. My letting agent has asked me to move out of my flat as it is untidy and I received a fixed penalty notice from the council as I couldn't get my bin up the steps to the storage area. I did have a cleaner but found this very expensive and difficult to fit round my shift work. I am finding it hard to get another accessible flat with no reference from my current landlord. My parents have suggested I give up my job and move back in with them as they live four hours away and I could not commute to work each day. Has anyone else failed at living independently? How have people coped psychologically when moving back with their parents? I don't know what to do for the best but worried I'll end up in a homeless unit where some of my service users live which could be a bit awkward! Any advice gratefully received!
