    in my eyes, in my throat.
    ive other Health illnesses which if u would like to know just ask me.
    im waiting for my application to be finished as apparently my file is with the decision maker ( 6 wks )  at pip.
    I’m fed up struggling so badly & the pip etc not caring.
    ive no support like a Social worker or anything.
    just council rents dept & ppl working for the council pushing n sent my me letter if I don’t pay my rent + Arrears on top then they’ll give me 7 days an then take proceedings, yet rent ppl know how bad my situation is.
    no one cares.
