How is everyone feeling today? I hope today is a good day, and if not, then I hope tomorrow will be a better day for you.
Sorry to have to post this, but I have no one, and I mean no one in my life. I honestly do not know what to do, and this is why I am writing on here.
Has anyone been through a similar experience to the one below? and if so would you please offer some advice? I really am stuck.
I have to move out of the house I share with my long term ex partner that I have lived with for 7 years here. His house and mortgage. He cheated on me plus other important issues. The relationship is not working and we both know it is over finally.
I have pets. Looking though houses for rent, it seems very few in fact no one, wants to rent out a home to a woman with a dog and cats.
I have agoraphobia but can get out with my dog. I work from home - although earn very little - , but it seems that landlords want a person employed outside of the home.
Private rents are so expensive in my area, so I will have to move out of the area. This area suits my mental health - surrounded by countryside and mostly quiet.
I cannot get anything from the council, as 1) I have no young children 2) my pets 3) there are no nearby council places, and the nearest ones outside of the area are drug and crime ridden. That would finish me off. I am not a snob. I grew up on a council estate. I know how the majority are and the minority are not.
I have zero friends and no family. I do have a son but he obviously has his life, which is good,he lives and works in another area miles away, in an apartment with his partner We speak on the phone a lot, and he visits every couple or so months. He would help me move my belongings.
I will be alone constantly. I am used to that. What I cannot deal with, is having to move. Agoraphobia and social anxiety, are making this ordeal horrific.
I don't want to leave the house, in which I made into a home over the past 7 years,and which I have made lovely. My pets will miss their familiar spots in the garden and fields beyond. My dog loves to sit under "his tree" and cat owners will know how their cats behave too.
The mental health team know, but, well they know, and that is it ! They don't know how to help and that's it.
Has anyone been in this situation before, and if so, what did you do?
