sorry just need to get all this off my chest.
Been living with my parents in law for 2 years. cant afford a mortgage or private rent and been on council waiting list and 3 housing associations for 2 years too.
My bird has started laying eggs for some reason.
My car needs tax, mot, service and 2 new tyres all in 2 weeks.
My dad is marrying his girlfriend in April and it only seems like yesterday that my mum died.
My husbands hours have been cut at work.
The tax credit people overpaid us by £2000 and are taking it back £130 per month leaving us with £16 per month even though I told them as soon as i started a new job.
My husband is being sued by a big company.
Oh and i'm 19 weeks pregnant with my second and am having to go to hosp lots because of having eclampsia with first.
sorry so long just that i needed to get this stuff out of my head as i feel like i was going to explode. wish things would get better

thanks for the hugs, much needed. we are going to try and go next week. we found them helpful before. when i phoned to tell them about my new job i even said i'm making sure you have the right details because you hear all the horror stories of being over paid. i dont know what else i could have done.

hopefully they'll help. we're in a LOT of debt and are considering an iva as we can only just make ends meet now at a push. i feel so bad for my little girl, she doesnt go without anything but i'm sure she's picking up on my sadness bless her. thanks fransmom

no probs sweetheart, there will be and end to all of this hassle, tho you may not see it for a while - there will be light at the end of the tunnel

go and see them before you sgn on dotted line with the iva, then you can may be more correctly informed / see if it's definitely right option for you.
