This is going to scary...
Just got a letter back from the Jobcentre plus people who are dealing with one of my claims(Income support). It just has my wage slips in it that I sent for evidence and I am thinking its going to be some time before they pay out on it. I have already lent money of my father to pay my rent and I worry too much already that my money belt is getting a bit light in funds. Do I worry to much? Shit yeah! I am not used to asking family members to help me pay for stuff and they are helping more than I want to at this stage. I just didn't realize ms was going to finacialy knack me aswell. I have never been the greatest with money in the first place(there I said it!) but I think I better get great at it soon.

I just want someone to rub my feet!!!!! There is a reason why I am so tall....I had to get my face as far away from my feet as possible!

Hope you are all well
Dave

    It's a bit scary when you have such a thin buffer between being destitue and just getting by.

    Hiya Dave,

    I understand a bit about the financial strain. I have been really sick this last little bit and I am being encouraged by docs and family to take the summer off and get a handle on my stupid ms. I am having to leave a job I just started and I am also having to borrow/take cash from my folks (guilt!). So I am going to be very broke, but I am going to have time to try free water therapy classes, all sorts of different diets, go on meds, and maybe actually have a bit of a social life again (so basically, I am very lucky). Once I get a handle on this I'll start making the big bucks again. Love the t-shirt and I hope you get a foot rub soon.

    As if we don't have enough problems with this illness, and stress only makes us more sick! The money thing sucks, I know! I have been there lately too, and although I have not been well off by any means, I saved and did my best to be careful with money. The thing is you just never know what life will hand you!

    Try not to stress too much about the money stuff (I know..easier said than done) I am sure your family is happy to help until some of the programs can kick in. :) You are in my thoughts! Take care of yourself and hang in there! You know where I am whenever you need me! :)
