Sometimes a bit of good news is only the beginning of bad news

Received a letter from the DWP informing me that they are reducing my DLA by £144.32 starting 26 November 2013.
I only get £402.80 every four weeks which consists of my higher rate mobility allowance and my medium rate personal care allowance, which is currently the only money I have coming in. So as of 26 November 2013 I will have to rely on £258.48 to not only provide the additional care I, as a severely disabled individual need but also to provide everything else ... effectively I'll be living on £64.62 a week.

I wonder what else I can do without.
