This is my spare room and is crammed with things to clean and restore to try and earn some money to supplement my meagre disability PIP income. I have two automatic electric beds to clean and repair and bought two new basic mattresses. Also a fridge freezer. I got all of these free from a well-known free stuff website. All else are boxes collected to post eBay items which are stored at the back of the beds. I also collect antiques and collectables and if I have no money I sell my belongings. When I have some work or money I buy stock over food. I buy reduced food and hunt and gather at supermarkets when they put 10p stickers on the food late at night and into my freezer it goes. I have zero support for my High Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder as I am judged by my peers as not disabled enough. If only they could live a week in my shoes.
Recently a pharmacist, likely driven by village gossip, called my GP with concerns over my mental health. I was in meltdown due to a bereavement and only asked for ‘sleep aids’. My GP thought it was so OTT he breached the pharmacists confidence and I am in a legal process with a big chain chemist... Life is hard.
