hi, im at a point i have no idea wat to next…
im 38, was diagnosed with MS when i was 23, tho had symptoms a long time b4. in recent times my MS has been under control of sorts. these past few months ive been fighting a loosin battle.
i live in a private rented place ( b4 the spare room fiasco), with my husband. i have athritas all over n have been having facet joint injections and denervination. it helps my pain a little, but doesnt last n hurts like mad to get it done.
i am having great difficulty using our stairs n bathroom(got a bath chair but prefer to go to the in laws to use the wet room!), and is just getting worse.
we have been on the housing list a fair while, n ive had to work hard to get re-assessed n got band c acute need
they have changed the banding and point system and we r now band c, med medical need!!
we have been biddin on bungalows,as its ideal-no stairs and perhaps a wet room if im lucky.
the council have told me that a housing association owns the bungalows in my area,and their rules state bungalows are for the over 50s, and im too young to qualify to get one. i was also told im not to bid on them as ill b overlooked!!!
i wrote to my MP, and forwarded the response from the council. ill b resending, just to make sure…
the properties i do get and can bid r usually on a 1st floor, in in bad areas.
we also need out and in to a council property as or HB went down and the landlord put the rent up. thats where my care componant goes, as well as payng fo my laptop…
