does this mean you are wishing for your parents death?
they die, and you live high off the hog?
Hell no !
Wouldn’t want 2.
i always fear that i will lose my mind if i lose my parents, they are literally the only people i talk to and i am financially dependent and living with them with no job. my dad passed away in 2020 and i was devastated, if i lose my mom my life will pretty much be over as i will be completely alone in the world with no money, nowhere to live, and have lost my favorite people in the world and the only people i interact with daily
That make me sad. I hope you can reach out and form a support system before your mother passes. I’m going to start trying to make friends, once covid dies down.
If she needs nursing care before she passes you can’t say bye bye to the £260.000.
Yeah i know. I dont really want her ruddy money anyway TBH. Id drink it away and drop dead. Part of my method of staying off the beer is not having much money lol.
I spend hundreds on video games and hardware instead lol.
She wont ever go in a nursing home - if anything my sister will move her into a granny annex that she will pay for to be built.
I’ll inherit a big mess to clean up.
My grandparents have done well for themselves but if they have to go into nursing care their nice house and acreage are all going to the nursing home so not sure if my mom would see anything.
I don’t expect anything. My grandparents and parents did their best and they’ve gifted me cars and cash throughout my life anyhow.
I think if I won £50.000 or even £100.00 on a scratch card I wouldn’t except it as my rent is £10.000 a year in supported living (this is paid by housing benefit) and I get a further £10.000 a year in disability benefits (ESA) and I’ll lose these if I have more then £16.000 in assets and I’ll new down £20.000 a year and that lottery ticket will be wasted. I would give the scratch card to my sister.
Money dont buy you happiness. So long as you can pay your bills and eat - you should be happy with that.
Not sounding depressive - but i could be a millionaire and the wife still wouldnt take me back. My true happiness lies in my wife and my Dumpling (Daughter).
Having a few 0000’s in my bank account will never solve that.
I think for me if I won ‘big’ this would make me even more paranoid as I’ll be thinking people are out to get my money. I would still live as a poor person, maybe even look more poorer as I’ll be paranoid about my wealth.
My parents are both dead and I inherited a bit of money from both of them.
Yeah - im had my fair share of parasites around me when im paid on my PIP, and when my grandmother died. Usually drug users that played on my loneliness. Or women offering sexual favours if you buy them a rock. Its the cardinal mistake i made of disclosing how much i got “in order to impress”.
Most people are shallow - and dont have your best interests at heart.
Keep your finances close to your chest - cos there will be always someone trying to take it off you.
Ain’t that the sorry truth. My so called ex best friend drained my checking account after he got a hold of my debt card pin.
The douche paid me back eventually but never apologized.
I’ve had the same parasites around me especially when I’ve been lonely. One so called friend used to come around my house every second Tuesday when he knew I got paid my incapacity benefits (over 10 years ago now) and we would get drunk, spend all my benefits and he would disappear. Once when I wasn’t around he burgled my bungalow for my computer the only asset I had. I dumped him years ago.
Its the sad truth the Drug Users will target the vulnerable. Either escorting them to the cashpoint on a payday. or “Cuckooing” their residancy to sell drugs from.
You got to remember that most people simply dont recieve the level of benefit income the likes of us do, cos of our disability. And people will take advantage of that.
I know about ‘Cuckooing’’. Thank god I’m in supported living now. We are protected here but I know there about many vulnerable people with mental health difficulties that don’t have a support network.
And I agree people on disability especially in the UK the money they get makes them quit wealthy to the drug users and people on job seekers, Now UC.
My father set up a Special Needs Trust fund for me.
Where my brother is going to be the Trustee and he’s going to manage my money.
You can do that here in the UK too. I would hope my sister would help manage this for me if I become wealthy as she quite sensible with money.
