Overwhelming living situation

I don’t know what to do. I have to move , and I can’t even look at apartments without crying because I can’t afford them. And even if I can I am terrified that my mental health will dip even more and I quit my job and lose a home. I truly feel like I. Gonna be homeless soon.

Hi Hoderi.
I am so sorry you are in this situation. Are there any places you can stay a while? In some countries there are places for people with mental health and other problems where they can stay a while until they figure out what to do next? It is nefinitely a better option then being homeless. I am so sorry your brother doesnt understand what you are going through. Have you ever got an official diagnosis? It might be something worth getting from a doctor. once the situation calms down a bit I would definitely seek a proffesional help for your mental health issues. The cause you a lot of pain and there is help out there. I am wishing you all the luck you can get.

I am officially diagnosed with Major Depression Disorder. I have been off meds for over a year because I can’t find any affordable mentally health care. I can’t afford 100 dollars per session or the online things like better help that want 180 a month. Neither of those are affordable. And I am right at that line where I make too much for government assistance, but not enough to afford overpriced mental health care.

There is nothing where I currently live that will help me. Tennessee is a crap state for people with mental health issues. I am moving back to Virginia at the end of the summer and I know I can get help there. My biggest issue with that is finding a stable living environment that I can afford. I’m not asking for financial help at all. I am just tired of always barely surviving and mental health costing me everything because America doesn’t know how to treat the mentally ill. The way my life is going I am gonna end up homeless again and living out of a tent. The only people that seem to care about me are the ones who are way to far away. Noone actually in my life cares about me. I have just been a means to an end every time. I have really been wondering how far my limits of not harming myself would go, but what is the point in being alive if I am gonna be homeless in a year or two. I used to hold on to hope because of family, since most others could care less about me. I have been single for 12 year now, noone takes an interest in me or they are intimidated by me. Up until recently that was okay, because I had my family. But now even family is kicking me to the curb. My whole life I have just wanted somewhere to belong, now I just want things to be over with. I find myself randomly crying nowadays because the pain of being alone is too much.
