Well i am a disabled pensioner, and so is my husband and we worked all our lives. We have our own home paid for, food in the cupboards, we are warm and pay our bills. My husband smokes and drinks, we dont have any debts.
I dont know…what to say really.
I had a funny turn with my MS last Monday and i see the Neurologist on Thursday 26th for urgent consultation. My husband has a carrier bag of drugs every month to keep him alive, free and paid for.
My sister had at 66 a mammogram 2 Octobers ago, they found calcium deposits within 1 month she had her breast removed, and the surgeon used special technology to make a breast. She had to have tests in September after a year and sadly they found cancer in the other breast, she had her breast removed within 2 weeks…and is now well on the mend with loads of support.
She is back at work again already, she chooses to work as she likes working.
My mum is 92 and lives on her home she lives a good life.
Both my daughters manage one is a signal mum with 2 kids with ADHD. She gets DLA for both children, she has a council house and has no debts.
My other daughter is married, her partner is off with severe RA at moment so only one pay coming in, but she gets tax credits and other things and is coping ok, and they live ok and have a horse…which they have to pay for.
OK there is crap out there, yes mistakes have been made, but just when the country is getting back on its feet, we go and change it all again. I think the term should be longer personally.
I worry that if the government is changed, we will have so many promises non of them will be kept…
When you really think about it, just how bad is this country as so many people want to come and live here lol…maybe if people had to go and live elsewhere like i have, they might just see how good this country has been even when its deemed bad lol.
I actually love this country its been ok for me in the years i have lived here even with trials and tribulations. I have been through the worse of the Labour and the worse of the conservatives, and survived lol…
