That right above is me and has been now for 17 days. At the start I was nervous scared even that I would not be able to do it alone.
But not too far into it I realised I had already been doing it alone for 11 years the biggest difference was most days I don’t have adult conversation except for online!! But that is sometimes the next conversations ever!!
Daily I get people messaging me on Facebook asking how I am doing and coping!! That right there is my support network these people I have built relationships with care about it!!
So since then, well let’s just say again landlord threatened eviction I told him to go ahead I want out. However it didn’t happen.
So what was my choices? Yes that’s right report my issues to the local council amazingly 3 days after they rang him I received the letter of eviction!!
No contact from him yet about the repairs. He only has 28 days to do them and believe me after his abuse and threats. I will be reporting him for not doing the work!
Along with this I had a scare Friday evening! Mia came out of school unwell and unable to breath. This was the first time that it’s happened while I am living alone.
I was not scared of what would happen or been alone and dealing with it. I was scared I would have to call a ambulance and have my 6 year old leave without mummy or daddy at her side!
Anyone with a child who frequently gets ill will understand it is hard to leave them while you go to the shop or for some air. So the thought of leaving them completely alone scared me so much.
I’m so grateful her dad came and watched the others while I took her. After over 4 hours in a&e she had 40 puffs of her inhaler, steroids, nebuliser, oxygen and xrays.
Thankfully we got to go home that night!! Which was amazing she perked up loads and the next day she was almost back to get complete usual self.
I will be posting most nights now!!
It’s time I started embracing this change and using it to my advantage.
