Hi Jeztepes

As Fairy Lu said you could contact the Citizens Advice Bureau
Advice

You can join the Benefit and Work website for free and access their free forum, for advice, they have trained professionals manning the site.

Regarding the housing officer and rent I would recommend getting advice from Shelter.
Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity - choose your location

Have you managed to open any of the letters, or asked your friends to? :hug1:

Perhaps your friends could help you find a new doctor and practice, then you could make an appointment and get them to accompany you for support. :hug1:

It can be sorted out and talking about your issues is a good step towards it.

That's great advice from Wiseowl....

If you have become very disorganised and confused it's hard to get back on top again isn't it?

It sounds like you need someone organised and methodical to sit down with you and go through it all.
The GP would probably be the best place to start so that he can verify your problems if necessary. I know that will be hard if you've fallen out with him....but you will probably need him.

Could you ask for a support worker to help you sort this mess out?

I would then talk to Shelter as suggested by Wiseowl.

You may need to take your meds if your confusion is the problem here....sorry!
I hate them too...but if your life is in complete disarray you may have to admit defeat.

You can't live like this really, can you?

Your local council should have something called 'district provisions' which you can apply for to help pay utility bills.
