I can totally relate to those feelings! Good luck!
Words are easy. Truth is I can't stop crying.That sounds like good planning @SeekingAfrica
That's pretty much what I'd advise a good friend too.
I asked it for two reasons: a) you know your town and your situation and hence your options best. And b) I think in our own situation we can get into overwhelm/ freeze/ avoidance because of emotional overload but often we're able to view a friend's situation more rationally and practically/ pragmatically.
I'm wishing you that things go more smoothly than expected and that some good fortune and help and kindness cross your path.
I was in a housing crisis earlier this year too and had many sleepless nights cos of potential homelessness. I got in touch with shelters etc too, just in case. My housing situation isn't fully resolved yet, but it's stable and okay now, which I'm grateful for. I hope your housing situation gets resolved in an unexpectedly positive way too.
And remember, it's not just you struggling with this... Affordable housing has become such a problem for so many ppl....
Is getting a roommate an option to share the rent?
As I said. When she wants, no one is more generous than her. She gets mad? You don't want to be in her eyesight. Not at all the person I met moving in hence why I was wanting to move anyway, but not like this.Wow she sounds like a winner ?
Following along and saying a prayer for you.
Remember to rest breathe..oh and I saw this little clip yesterday idk if anyone said it yet:
Write a list down of everything (everything!) worrying you.
Then take 30 seconds and cross of all the stuff that is out of your control
Yeah I understand this I’m also hereLike laying down, but can't sleep, watching but can't focus kind of thing).
Same right now I feel sick and it sucks so much and I have a lot of important stuff to do as well this week it feels so unfair and like I can’t do it but when I try extremely hard to stay in the present it does help. One thing at a timemy whole body is in shock
This was me yesterdayfeel like I'm swimming.
Not much. It's no furniture really, my apartment came furnished. But it is a lot of folders of documents and books and kitchen stuff I really need. Last time I had such crisis I downsized to the bone and regretted it later when I had to buy so many things one by one for that exact reason. I lost so much I can't get back. All I own, I've earned with blood, sweat and tears. I don't want to part with it. Also my clothing is actually minimal and can fit in 2 trunks likely, except I only have one.How much of your stuff can you downsize?
Literally. I honestly keep wondering why I still exist which is not a great crisis response. If today is somewhat lost I need to know tomorrow won't be. I don't know how not to feel like that.And housing + finances + mental health can be such a nightmare...
That's not getting better. She keeps texting me more things I'm supposed to pay by that random date before her trip and honestly, if she keeps going I'm not going to be able to function to give her anything.Sorry about the with your landlady
Freelance translation and transcription. Occasionally freelance drawings, if I find such gigs, which is something I'll try as well.May I ask what type of work do you do?
I'm so sorry you're feeling like that also. Despite all my PTSD knowledge at times like this I just feel like my brain is broken and I'm uselessly trying to fix it.Same right now I feel sick and it sucks so much and I have a lot of important stuff to do as well this week it feels so unfair and like I can’t do it but when I try extremely hard to stay in the present it does help.
I'm so sorry! Sending hugs if appropriate.This was me yesterday
That I'm adding to the daily things. Went to the closest store today (literally crossing the street) and it was so sunny (and my apartment is in shade) that it did feel like a different world. My neighbourhood is pretty green so if I try to go out for some walks daily even for a bit that maybe helping in not losing my mind.Maybe in nature? Look at the trees turn off the phone..sit in the g
