  1. Thank you, both. I'm still getting used to the new glasses. They are so thick that they make everything look small, and curved at the edges. I've had a bit of a rest today - if I'm honest I've been struggling with feelings of depression - but am planning to get back out there and go to the shop tomorrow. Also hopefully meet up with my mum, who I haven't seen for a couple of weeks.
  2. Quick update. Been on the bus into town and picked up my new glasses. I have a meeting with someone from the council about housing on Monday. (Thank you Ashley for being my advocate!)
  3. Today has been very challenging, to put it mildly! I was lucky enough to have a knight in shining armour come to my rescue though. On a positive note, I took the bus into town today. I nearly gave up and called a taxi on the way back as the buses kept driving straight past the stop where I was standing.
  4. Thank you, I am feeling a bit better now than before. I'm just having something to eat - I've hardly eaten anything all day - and then I'm going to see if I can get the DVD player in this room to work to try and take my mind off everything for a bit. xx
  5. Thank you everyone. It's been an exhausting day trying to get something sorted (I'm sure Ashley will agree!) but thanks to the amazing support and generosity of Ashley & co, I now have somewhere to stay until Monday. Hopefully something will have been sorted with the council by then.
  6. Thank you everyone, I am feeling a bit calmer and heading to bed. I have 1 more night booked here now, though I will have to pack up and change rooms in the morning. Thank you so much Ashley, and for the amazing offer of help.
  7. Sorry Gemma. It's complicated and I'm not very good at explaining. I have to leave here tomorrow morning. The council said I should sleep on the sofa at my mum's house (where I've been living before I came to the guest house). Don't worry though, a moderator is helping me via PM.
  8. I phoned, my mum phoned. Eventually they phoned back. They were asking me all sorts of questions. I panicked and didn't know what to say, so I gave them my mum's number for her to explain. They also said they need to speak to my doctor to find out if I'm a priority for housing. They were going to phone them tomorrow, but when I called the surgery to authorise it they said he isn't in till Thursday so I don't know what they will do. My mum has just phoned. They wouldn't listen to her. She had to tell them the truth about my room, but they seemed to think I should go and sleep on the sofa. I can't do this. I wish I'd just stayed at home now. Let them take body away as well as the trash. You can tell me I'm being dramatic if you like, but it's true. I can pretend to be normal and coping all I like, but I'll never be. It's all ruined. There'll never be any progress because this always happens I just burn out out after a week. I can't explain myself to anyone, no one is going to understand. Everyone is just going to judge me. Most people aren't like you.
  9. Thank you. I think I'll try taking some paracetamol and see if that helps, then maybe I'll be able to think better.
  10. Thank you. I'll give them just a bit longer, then I'll call. I'm feeling worse again since I got up.
  11. Thank you both. I haven't been given any details at all except the name of the person who should be ringing me. I'm just worried if I pester them they'll think I'm a nuisance and not want to help me. They know I'm going to be homeless tomorrow!
  12. Thank you Emsie and Gemma. I will try to enjoy my last day here. I'm just very worried about where I'm going to go tomorrow.
  13. Thank you, Emsie. ☺️ I slept quite well and am feeling a bit better at the moment.
