Mr D is on DSP As I work Mr D gets nowhere near the full amount but the discounts help. I would like to think Mr D could work at least part time but I am not sure he can - he seems to go ok then I notice things are not right and it breaks my heart. I have to be practical about budgeting, our only debt is a small mortgage and I refuse to have any credit cards. If we cannot pay for it we don't get it. 

 

It is one of the losses that come with MI - living grief.
