It lasted for 2 hours and the lady was very understanding and nice. Sadly, she confirmed that I won't receive any financial help until two weeks tomorrow. 


There's a chance I may get an advance that has to be paid back that I should hear about tomorrow so fingers crossed for that.


My friend was so kind to put me up for three nights but I am back in the car again tonight. 


Had some washing done at my sisters and gave the car a clean out today. A friend sent me a few quid so I got so petrol and food. 


Wish me luck... By Friday the crap could really hit the fan but I have a couple friends who will help out if I am really stuck. I don't want to impose on anyone too much so if I really do hit a lowest point again I will call on them.


Anyway, just thought I would update those of you who are concerned.


No negativity please.


And thank you for all the genuine advice and well wishes. My love to you all.

@bantonmat least the advisor was understanding you will get the advance but don't tell them you have friends that can support you because they will want you to get support from anyone but them and obviously you have help but you've got to be careful not to use it to often as times are hard for everyone and when you really need help it might no be there but don't suffer in silence you've got to strike the balance right but I wish you well I hope you get sorted soon
everyone needs a little hope love and someone who believes in them, remembering difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations. Happy giffgaffing one and all

What benefit are you on? Beware of sanctions if you are on the looking for work one and don't do enough looking for work.

Also, now you have an active claim I think you will be eligible for a loan from there, (it's either them or the council, my biological mother got one, don't remember the name of it, but gov UK will direct you to the right place).

At times like these, good friends are what you need. Good luck with bureaucratic sh1t.
