So I'm definitely feeling the cost of living and the damage that was done by the truss short period of time in office my landlord is selling our home so we're having to find somewhere else to live he told me Friday evening so not been able to get any help from any government or authority just yet but I am blessed with a few good friends who are already on the case and trying to help us which has made me feel very emotional. When we moved here we thought it was for at least the next 10 years but because of the mortgage rises my landlord is selling up hebis a very good landlord and I'm very upset that we have to move but I understand his situation and why he needs to sell I just don't know what were going to do I don't have money to move I don't have money for a deposit or anything and what's worrying me the most is everywhere I'm seeing online is £3000 and up per month how is anyone able to afford this I know my housing allowance won't I can't work I can't save and I can't seem to find positivity from this I'm scared were going to be left homeless or worst in a damp mould filled property like last time it's scary and I don't know what the future holds for us or if we will have to relocate completely and uproot our entire lives or not Its very upsetting how is anyone meant to manage on the price increasing for absolutely everything housing isn't great where I am and £3000+ for a month to live in my town is so ridiculously overpriced the government did this to us why aren't they doing more to help
