My family and I have made some decisions that have majorly affected us financially. We decided in august this year we would take my step son out of school due to him suffering mentally- he has been diagnosed with OCD & working memory difficulties which was causing him to fall behind in all subjects. He was putting as much effort as he possibly could but his grades were getting worse & everyday I would collect him from school he would come out very tense and angry, his mental health was getting worse and his “habits”(his term for OCD) where coming back. It was the toughest decision to make wether we take him out or leave him there and watch him get worse but we decided we had to take him out. Since then his mental health has improved so much. His maths and English have improved due to one to one tutoring & his confidence has shot through the roof every time we look at him we know we have made the right decision. But of course we have then struggled financially due to this and also COVID my partners business also went down due to this so we have lost income there & been hit with huge bills that we are struggling to get on top of. I will be going back to work on the 11th of January but only part time so I can still be around for my stepson. Please help my family at this tough time. I know it’s been a hard year for everyone but every little will help.
