So this isnt entirely mental health based but it’s giving me a whole pile of anxiety and some tips/stories/ideas might help reduce that. Basically, I’m moving into low-income housing(government owned places that have lower rent) for the first time, and in my head, everything I own is about to get ruined.
I have lots of family who live in these types of places and they are rampant with rot, mold, vermin and insects which is a huge systemic problem on it’s own, but I really treasure my belongings because I’ve always been careful with money so I could buy good quality, lifelong things. The thought of moving there and having my family heirlooms eaten by termites, my clothes filled with bugs, or my computer rusted out from the moldy leaks is A LOT. It feels like just to escape where I’m living right now, I have to sacrifice a lifetime of work and effort I’ve put in to be able to have reliable things.
Anyone with experience living in such a place… tips to keep my things safe? What methods did u use? Idk
