DEAR DEIDRE: I’M afraid I’ll end up homeless because I’m struggling to make ends meet and can’t afford to pay my rent.
I’m at a loss and I don’t know where or who to turn to.
I’m a single 57-year-old woman and I’ve been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis for quite some time.
It’s made it incredibly difficult for me to maintain my job as a carer, and on a good week, I can only manage two to three days of work.
I’ve spent the only savings I had to cover the cost of my bills, but now I’ve run dry.
I’m worried sick about the future, and I have no idea what to do.
