Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis while on maternity leave, 28-year old Samantha’s relationship fell apart, leaving her a single parent of a two-year old. Now, Samantha’s landlord has fallen behind with his mortgage payments, and she and Max are being evicted as the flat is repossessed. As recipients of Housing Benefit, they have struggled to find anywhere to move to. Social housing is in short supply, and they have been offered emergency hostel accommodation an hour’s drive away. Samantha says, “Here, I have family who can come and cook for me on a difficult day or help look after Max. Stress is a big trigger for a relapse. Suddenly, I am getting all these warning symptoms.”
