Stress is a killer. I believe stress is what got me here. I try to avoid it but sometimes it marches into my home and my life, uninvited. Yesterday and the day before I hustled, gathered references, made many phone calls, sent many emails to gather references for a house that was almost affordable, accepted pets (or so said the ad), basically blew myself out trying to land this small house for me, my on again off agai son, and my two dogs. i called in all my markers. I charmed the landlady, I was sure I was going to get the place. Late yesterday afternoon, I got the call, ït's not good news, you didn't get the place. It felt like someone stuck a dagger in my belly. I was so sure, that I was going to get it, then poof whipped the rug right out from under me. Now I feel hopeless, devastated, I don't know where to turn. I have a very limited budget. It's really, really hard to find a place that will accept dogs, mine have references and are extremely well behaved. Nobody will give me a chance. It seems as soon as they hear "dogs', it's a black mark against me. I'm lost. I feel like building a little shed, putting it on our property and moving into it. I have a hugh woodstove, am very handy, but disability wants a "rent receipt", otherwise they won't support my housing. Lost and frustrated and in so much pain from overdoing it and then, nothing. No where to turn. Very fragile right now.

Hi Tyno-
 
I know "high level" stress does me in too. I say we both build a shed on your land and be done with it!
 
Last week was a very bad week. Did not know if I was going to be able to stay in the home that we rent (been here 14 yrs) and I was going to have to send my 17 yr. old son to his good friends house and I did not know where I was going- literally. I have talked to my landlords and have worked things out with them. I have a court hearing for Soc. Sec. Disability in June. My landlords and I will re-evaluate things then. I was so scared. I can handle tons, but when it gets down to a roof over my head and losing that, it does not sit well with me. Instant stress off the charts!!
 
I know landlords stereotype anyone with animals because others have wrecked it for the rest of the population by their pets causing damage. But don't give up! We're rooting for you and hope you can find something REAL soon!!

Tyno, I'm sorry you didn't get the house you wanted but I believe there is one even better out there for you.  That has happened to me more times than I can remember.  When things look hopeless, something comes along that is beyond my wildest dreams!  So, that was not the house for you.  You THOUGHT it was, but I think there will be another, even better, coming along.

Thank-you all for the kind words of support. My current landlord also knows the delemma and has given me an extra month. And let's face it, I still have the land to put the trailer on if it gets real rough. I think a threat to the roof over ones head, with this dreaded disease is the greatest threat of all. When we feel rotten, we are able to slide "home" on a wing and a prayer. It's just been so much moving in such a concentrated period of time, 4 moves 3 years, each move requiring hurculean efforts. So, as someone wrote, no, that probably wasn't the house for me, my son said so from the get go cause the landlady who is very eccentric lives right next door and tends to "pop in" whenever. She wants a friend and the rent money. I wouldn't be able to take too much of that cause we all know, when we feel lousy, the last thing we want is company, unless they feel lousy too.Thank-you all, again.

Thank-you Sherry: I'm trying to keep my chin up. It can be difficult. I think that being homeless tops my chart of all time fears, and that's saying something because i don't fear much. I have been homeless several times over the years. I spent one summer in a pup tent with my pup. It rained all summer. Wet dog, 100 lbs in a four by eight space, but hey, I survived! I also spent the previous spring camped next to a alligator pond. So, been there, don't want to go back. However, with the extra time grated by landlordhere, something should manifest. I put out about fifty notices. I have told everyone I can think of. I guess prayer will have to see me through. Thank-you all.
