    Hello @Marioneth and a warm welcome to the community. I am sorry to hear you are feeling so low, but I have no doubt at all that you have good reason.
    Would you care to tell us a little more? It is safe to do so here.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard

    Hello @Marioneth
    And what can I say? Your situation is clearly awful and my sympathy, real as it is, is not going to make any real difference. I'm here, I care, but that won't really cut the mustard either, I know.
    I've flagged your post for attention, trusting that someone will get back to you who may be able to offer you real help. Bear with us, please, whilst I try to see what we can do.
    I've seen your other posts by the way - looked them up following your message - and they all seem to be from today. There is a post that is nearly a month old? Can you clarify that at all?
    Here, listening.

    Dear Richard, I've been unable to get to my mail, bills, letters etc for near a month.  In the same clothes now for that time.  Can't unpack and hang clothes etc.  This accommodation is only 3 months, them move to small flat in town.
    It'll kill me in the end as am a country girl.  All the city nobs bought up the countryside didn't they.  Yes I've a RIGHT t b GRUMPY!
    You become UNDATEABLE  in the end so life's not worth living.

    Hello again, @Marioneth and thank you for getting back to me. Of course you have a right to be grumpy. Grumpy is too mild a word for it. The government's treatment of the disabled makes me bloody furious, and I'm looking (outside of Scope) actively for ways to fight the b********s. Our fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers fought for a 'land fit for heroes' and all we've received is a 'land fit for heroin'.
    As I said before, I've flagged your message for people to look at who have more direct expertise than I do. With luck they will be in touch with you tomorrow.
    Hang on in there, please, and stay in touch,
    You matter,
    Richard

    Wow, that is SO kind.  I wasn't asking for help just VENTING MY ANGER.  Believe me, it is just very good that you've listened to me and am grateful for that.

    My privilege, @Marioneth. Relieved that you were venting, and hope you won't hesitate to rant at any time you feel the need.
    Take care.
