Had enough
Isolated, not one person apart from my autistic daughter to talk to. Agencies have all pulled back as there is now a demand for mental health in children and not enough staff to go round. I'm seen as the strong one. I can't be strong all the time. I'm passed caring about bills. My income has dropped again thanks to DWP deducting twice the amount from social fund loans that were stopped for a while during 1st lockdown. Child Maintenance is still not been paid I've dropped £90 a week. I've tried. I tried so hard. My pleas to local Conservative MP to support a change on the child maintenance service, has fallen on deaf ears. Both my daughter and myself feel worthless.
