Imprisoned by incompetence!

I have a lovely new front door. Despite many things wrong with the properties on our street, the housing association decided to spend money on expensive looking new doors (perhaps they are selling us, lock, stock and barrel of chavs?).

It does not self lock. so, supposing the door frame and sill did not have three different height levels and was a cm lower than the path causing four painful and quick sudden bumps severely hurting my back when I go in or out of my house, and I could reach the door handle that needs to be lifted up and the lock to lock the door, I would have to go down the path, turn around, providing the neighbour hasn't boxed me in - else that would be a 90 degree turn - turn around, come back around the narrow pathway, lock door, reverse down narrow path without falling off the roughly 20-30 cm drop into the lawn or the neighbours wasteland, onto the carport, unless of course, the neighbour has blocked me in, in in case, never might all the pain and risk, I cannot do a reverse 90 degree turn in the chair. Oh, I suppose I could scratch their car or worse.

Or, in effect, I am imprisoned in my own home. they are coming on the 22nd to put in a self locking lock into the door, but are not fixing the other problems!

Meanwhile, it is six months since my stairlift broke!

And BK's PIP has been refused.

Life as a disabled person in Tory Brexit Britain just gets worse and worse!

Hugs go without saying, but I wish there was something some of us could do!

Thanks for the hugs, I need lots of cyber hugs I think.

One thing you can do is spread the word, tell people that the Mail etc have it wrong, it is almost impossible for people to get what they need to live, that fraud is impossible, and the very vulnerable of our society are paying the cost for all the lies and blame.

I already tell people. One problem is that most of my friends, family and neighbours already agree with me/you/us. But I can assure you I would tell anyone who would listen that the Mail are total liars!

I knew you probably would anyway, but sharing stories and experiences and challenging the brain washing of some people is all we can all do, isn't it? :(

Husband has some friends (found via sporting activities etc) who read and believe the Mail and he tries hard to explain to them but they believe what they believe. :(. Still - he keeps trying.

Thanks. Life just gets harder and harder for no reason but either govt incompetence or deliberate persecution. I can't decide if it's one or the other or both.
