Sorry for the downbeat “vibe” of this post-?perhaps the result of an unexpected hospital stay for a week. I was discharged yesterday with s NEW issue to keep track of— a heart arrhythmia thing. That all fits nicely with the PMR and spinal problem.
I begin to despair: Two years ago I was a teacher in an independent American school, earning over £45,000 a year. Then, I was made redundant, and since then have been living on savings, then forced to go into my pension pot, which was too small, and started too late by my employer to ever provide a lasting annuity anyway.
Two years later, and I am still unemployed, reaching the end of my savings, and in great danger of falling through the cracks of any benefits or welfare system
I’ve just come out of a surprise stay at the hospital, where I was kept for a week while they investigated newly discovered heart problems, and now must take anticoagulants, and Digoxen.
As I come to the end of my money, I fear applying for benefits, even though I don’t know what else to do: I can barely walk, and so do not cut a very convincing figure for job interviews, even though there are jobs available. In the past two years I have gone through several job interviews, though none with success. I simply feel like I am hitting a brick wall and do not know what will happen to me when my money runs out.
.., OK. Rant of helplessness over; I will now revert to positive motivation and uplifting thoughts
