Failing to cope alone

MarionethMarioneth Member Posts: 13 Listener
Failing miserably at coping alone.  Social Services are abysmally innefective.

Because of lack of of support, my healths really failing.  I'm getting correct pensions and state pension, but its no where near enough.

    Many many thanks, this is totally unbelievable. We get driven like this many times, throughNO FAULT OF OUR OWM!   We are JUST .L E F T. ALONE TO COPE, with NO RESOURCES!!!  
    I'm really very sorry you've been just robbed of ANY DIGNITY TOO.  Once I burst into tears on answering door t complete stranger.  She said what's wrong.  I couldn't take my washing off the line, because of weakness.  She had to go to my back yard and bring it in.
    Yet they want us to live independently, give us insufficient to pay for care.

    Its UTTERLY INSANE!  We get no holidays and just sit in a messy house, no wonder were f..... Depressed.    I WAS NOT DEPRESSED, when I became disabled!!! I'm writing this from my bed, where I am nearly 24/7

    IS ANYBODY LISTENING OUT THERE LIKE M.P's!

    I've had depression for 21 years after the birth of my last son. Mam died weeks after.. That was the start.. But disabled since birth. Bullied all my life even from.. ADULT NURSING STAFF I worked with... Just recently moved into lush flat.. No stairs but don't know anyone.. No family other than me son at uni.. I feel worthless.. Ugly fat.. A nightmare on society.. Like yourself . My depression wasn't HALF as bad since pip turned my life upside down... My dad took own life 7 years ago.. And iam still grieving.. It's defo worse like for us.. spend more time in bed... Loneliness is Britain's biggest killer... Its horrendous.. Wish I and yourself had folk to help. Speak up for us... But its all at a cost.. I rest my case....
