London is not friendly for disabilities

I have been feeling quite low today. Not just because my stomach has been going a mile a minute but with the realisation that if I would like to stay living in London, I am going to need to find a second job. This will mean that I will be working either 6 or 7 days a week.

Why is this you ask?

Well simply put, it is the cost of living in London. Where your perscriptions can be up to or over £10 per item. Where people are less likely to offer you help and assistance if you have a problem. Where transportation systems are not retrofitted with things like LIFTS or escallators so people like me have to avoid certain stations. Where to find somewhere suitable to live you need to have a budget of over £1000 per month without bills included and where the cost of travel goes up yearly.

I am on 8-10 medications a day so a month on medications alone I can be paying £80-£100.

Living in London is hard but when you work here it is even harder because realistically you have to stay here.

I may even have to give up blogging if I ever find a place of my own unless I find something that can run off of my phone for a while.

London is not suitable for the disabled and yet I am stuck here.

If anyone out there is able to help me please feel free to donate money to me via my paypal paypal.me/suzef86 I gave up with Gofundme as people seemed more interested in donating to people who want to spread hate then to help those in need so I decided if anyone wants to help me they can and the link above should help.

Learning to cope

Since I have been diagnosed with autism I am very hyper-vigilant about behaviours which may cause concern for others. This can be very tough as it has given me a state of anxiety over how I behave at work. This is very difficult to handle however I am always looking at what I can do to better myself. It, however, feels like I am learning to walk for the very first time.  It can feel like I am taking one step back and 1,000,000 step back. I have had 32 years of trying to get someone to listen to me that I needed help, now that I have people I am trying very hard.  I think that if I did not have my work then I would go insane with the millions of things that go through my head.
