Mr Mistoffelees so very sorry to read your litany of woes, there is nothing I can do to help except offer moral support. I have experienced it and even though it seems nothing can get any worse realise there is a light at the end of the tunnel although it may seem a long way off.
I just got a torch to help me fumble my way through my tunnel. Having a lean Christmas - my son asked what I would like and I told him a big pack of T.Rolls to last all through next year and Jumbo box of Washing Powder (he's near a CostCo) Bah Humbug ;-)
I think that it will be some time before we hear good news on the economic front,and before it happens there is going to be more bad news.
"I know there are plenty of people much worse-off than me".
Yes, of course, and I commend your attitude, but sometimes it's not easy to remember. I think we're all entitled to feel a bit hard done by occasionally, so let's agree that it's OK to come here and express it.
