hi, it's good to be babk on here, on 2 counts. I have been so low & tearful for ages so I couldn't cope with this beast (computer) but also I've been trying to persuade this machine that it wanted to connect to, well anything really. Apparently my signal strength is excellent but it wouldn't connect to anything I tried but hey, it connected to fibroaction!
Hope you're all doing ok. Things here are ridiculous! As I've told you all I've been thinking of moving to a more level town, as the hills here are not compatible with fibromyalgia. Well last weekend I applied for a tenancy for a privately rented flat in a retirement complex in Wells. They weren't too happy that I'm on benefits so asked for a guarantor, thankfully my son agreed to do this.That was on Monday. I had instilled in them the fact that I needed to give my months notice by today, to be able to move next month. No problem they said. Hmm.
I phoned every day & each day have been told," don't worry,it'll be fine" well I was worried, but yesterday I finally succombed & gave my months notice, but still no news about whether my son or myself are capable of keeping up the rent.
Of course now I don't know what to do if I'm rejected, apart from anything else they took £350 from me, non refundable!!!
Anyway, that's difficult enough, but I was speaking to my almost ex husband on the phone earlier & he said he wished I'd move back, to make it easier, because we can't sell the house.
I don't know what to do.
Our house is large enough to have 3 rooms each & just share kitchen & bathroom, I have suggested it previously. Neither of us want to try to rekindle our marriage - it's dead! But would it be sensible to try sharing the house?
We are both on benefits, previously we were on income support with him as my carer. We could go back to that but have the money paid into a seperate account for bills & have personal 'spending' & living expenses paid into our own banks & live independantly, with locks on our doors etc. He would only be my carar on paper.
It's risky, but once I sign the lease for the flat (presuming it ever comes) then I will be tied for a year.
I love living here & wish I didn't have to leave, but with all the uncertainty about my benefits, my health getting worse, the future is a bit bleak. Is it worth a try? I could always move again if it didn't work. I don't love my husband & I'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual, but after 30years together, we do know one another.
Oh dear, I don't know what to think or do! Any thoughts would be very welcome
