Hi I’m Stu and I’m about to tell you the basics of my story. Thanks for listening.
I was born disabled with severe Haemophilia (hemophilia if in US). For those that don’t know, this means I bleed internally into my joints among other problems but that is the main one. When I was 8 years old I was given contaminated injections from the hospital that was supposed to treat one of my bleeding episodes. Instead of treating me it actually gave me HIV and Hepatitis B & C. No government (who were at fault) or hospital has ever taken responsibility for this and you can find all about this tragedy through a simple google search of tainted blood. This obviously impacted my school life (I was hardly ever there due to illness. So I didn’t get much of an education. And in later life work was impossible as nobody would employ me. I tried to start my own online business but honestly I had no idea what I was doing (probably the lack of education there I guess) all it done was made my paypal look messy as they can’t change my dead business name back to my own name for some reason (again probably me). I didn’t really have time to run it anyway though what with my many hospital appointments as I have also developed liver cirrhosis due to the hepatitis. Somehow despite all doctors predictions I am still alive today and have a wife and young son. We live in a very small 2 bedroom house on the south coast of England. This was fine once upon a time but!! And here comes the real never rains but pours moment. As if we hadn’t been through enough, my wife as a side effect from child birth was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and it was less than 2 months before she was permanently in a wheelchair.
Now as I am sure you can understand a small 2 bedroom house with all our sons items and now 2 people’s disabled items such as wheelchairs, walkers, crutches and hand rails in a lot of places leaves us with very little room. In fact it has become a hazard with both of taking various falls due to items being on the floor because we just don’t have anywhere else to put them.
We are all constantly under each other’s feet, struggling to manoeuvre around our own house which has cause a constant tension and frustration in our house. Yet the local council say that there are no council houses available for us and the only way we could get a bigger house would be to buy one ourselves.
Of course I can’t get a mortgage as nobody knows how long I’m going to be around for.
We really just want a place we can be safe and happy in for whatever time we have left with each other.
ideally with the amount of stuff we have and need, then we should be asking enough for a 4 bedroom house but at this point we will take anything bigger than what we have so we have been looking at the 3 bedroom house (photo included) which is on sale at £230.000 but we also need a wet room installed as neither of us can use a bath and have to have special adaptations made so that would be another £5000 and of course the hand rails and things for around the house.
I am not used to sites like this and I expect what I’m asking for is probably a ridiculous amount, but I don’t mind admitting while I’m normally a proud man, I’m now beyond desperate. Forgetting my own happiness, nobody wants to see their life partner miserable and worried about her safety every single day. She is already on anti depressants and is still recovering from a mental breakdown as a result of just everything accumulating. We just want to be happy and enjoy the time with our son.
Honestly ANY financial help at all would be amazing.

Thank you for your time
Have a great day/night
