We are heading into month 3-4 of statutory sick pay due to husband’s anxiety and depression. He is working really hard on it and I am really proud of him. It’s getting very hard with money though, we have £100 left in saving and this month’s bills have put us in our overdraft.
It hasn’t helped that we have consistently received less than we should for ssp. First month his employer took £100 in tax off £350 ssp… Second month because they were waiting on sick notes, they have only paid £180 and ignored his pre booked holiday and the day he Did work. Which is why we are now in lots of financial trouble – we just can’t cover being down by £1200 per month.
Feeling quite stressed. No idea what I am going to put together for lunch today, especially considering both lack of money And gluten free.
