Q. What haven't you told us yet, which feels important to you?
There have been many times I wanted to end it all. Just leave this world that causes life to be difficult. I am only here for the sake of my child. Her father rejected her. Every agency from school to social work and CAMHS have failed her. The DWP Child Maintenance Service has failed her. 8 years ago I left a life of violence. Life was supposed to get better. So far I've been homeless 5 times, scraping by on low wages and benefits and been isolated and lonely. How is it possible to get easier when politicians decide your worth? We are now facing homelessness again as landlords want to sell the flat.
