Hi guys me again, sorry about all these posts I'm sending out. Have so much going on in my mind. I need to speak to someone...
Basically, I was diagnosed with RA at 22 (severe) in both knees & was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis recently. Im now 34.
I was staying with my mum for a bit after a relationship breakdown..but had to eventually leave because she's an alcoholic & it wasn't healthy with me seeing that, plus the living arrangements wasn't ideal for me.
So, after that, I went to a relative, again the living arrangements aren't ideal for me as the bedroom is upstairs, toilet downstairs & to get in and out of the shower is a nightmare for me as its in a bath. Can't sit on a toilet anymore because of my knees & I know this sounds really bad, but where I am upstairs I can't make the toilet, so I pee in a bottle. I was told by another relative that he likes his own space, I mean I don't ask for help much. I don't know whether he's finding it hard to see me like this. He works nights so sometimes if he can't carry me up the stairs because it's too early, I tend to sleep on the sofa. Anyway, I don't know what to do, I don't really want to stay there as I feel like I'm a burden & yet again, the place isn't ideal for me. I'm not working at the moment due to having this disease, so I'm on esa & dla. I don't know if I'm coming or going, my stuff are all in bags. I'm getting really down about it all, I've booked a docs appointment as I'm so depressed with my health & not knowing where I'll be from one day to the next. I don't know if the council or what can help me.... Can someone help me please.m?
