I know I have been depressed for a while now, but have never felt so low as I have this week.
With all this worry over benefits next year. My income will stop.
I get 2 letters from the council this week ,first sayng they are changing the council tax next year, meaning its going up.
Then today I get one saying they are changing the law about where you are housed. If you have a spare bedroom they are going to stop 14% of the benefit, if you have 2 spare rooms they will stop 25%
If you are disabled and you need a spare room for your partner to sleep in if you keep them awake or night does not count. If you have children that stay with you at weekends, not an excuse, you cant use that as an excuse.
I actually sat there and thought, what is the point? Why do I bother to live? This government is going to make sure I have no money, and now no home.
I hate the government!
