So my common law boyfriend left me... didn't pay rent... took off two days before it was due and left me homeless. I'm now at my parents place.. and it's causing a lot of anxiety. They told me I'm here on a trial basis and the first time that we fight I'll have to find a new place to live. My mom is the only reason I'm allowed to stay here.. if it was my dad's decision I wouldn't have been allowed back. I'm planning to only be here temporarly however the stress is not helping... I'm now 40 minutes away of highway away from the nearest hospital and I have no car, which is also causing me anxiety.
 
My dad is just plain mean to me... I've had him tell me on fathers day to go look for somebody else to talk to... and he has told me repeatedly that he only has one daughter (I have a younger sister) and although he's pretty much ignoring me... living in his house isn't helping.
 
It also doesn't help that all my ptsd comes from this town... I always told myself I'd never end up back here... however I have no money... nothing until my disability comes in... it's a sticky situation :( and my parents refuse to support me finacially so I have no real options. I can't even move far away with other family because I need to be close enough to my job to qualify for disability.

I am so sorry all this has happened to you.  No wonder your anxiety is up, mine would be too.  I am also sorry that your own father could treat you like that.  Can you contact your doctor and get something to help calm you some?  I wish I had some wise advice to give you that would help you feel better, but unfortunately I don't.  Please come here and talk to us anytime you need, we will always be here for you.

Hugs to you,

I don't know what to say either, except I'm sorry about what happened and you father too. Mine is a lot like that too. . . Like Nanners said, maybe you should try to see your doc and get something to help your stress my friend!

Good luck to you and take care :)

Corrie,

I am so sorry and I hope things work out soon for you.  I know you are not where you would like to be right now in your life but never give up your hopes and your dreams.

Take care
Kitt

I wonder why your father feels the way he does? Doesn't sound like a very pleasant place to live and you're probably having to eat your pride right now. I'm sorry. I hope things pick up for you soon! Do you have any girlfriends that could spare a couch or bedroom until you get back on your feet? Let us know what happens! I'll be thinking about you....

:) next time I can get to the hospital I'll talk to my doc. I'm only planning to be here until my brother leaves to India in two weeks... hopefully I'll find somewhere else by then. Lack of girlfriends who can take me in.

And I really am eating my pride. My parents are religious.. I am not.. I think that's where the tension comes from.

I had an anxiety attack while grocery shopping with my mom... my head has been swimming way too much lately... and I'm trying to stay focused... but its hard when I've suddenly realized that I'm alone... I've been in a relationship for 4 1/2 years... and until now I didn't see it ending. I know i'm young but the uncertainty of ever finding somebody who I can trust to not take off on me because of my health... that and not having a job or being able to support myself. I feel like i'm starting all over... but I'm not... because I'm stuck with a job that i can't work at until all this disability stuff gets sorted out.

I'm just really stuck, I feel trapped, I feel like I have no choices but to just wait... and all I want to do is start something new.

Anxiety about my fibro isn't helping either - it's acting up again because of stress.

I'm just super anxious... but I'm trying to stay calm... trying to breathe... I know this is just a transition.

Corrie, I know how you are feeling! Not being able to support yourself is a big problem. I'm almost 50 and I can't support myself. I can't find a job. At least not one that pays. I have my real estate license but we all know how that business is doing. Then I got into home loans. Well, that's taking a dive. So, I know how you feel. Thank God my husband makes enough for us to get by. But it would be nice to know if I found myself on my own, I could support myself.

You say your parents are religious. Interesting. I find this interesting because they don't seem very enthusiastic about helping you through this difficult time. Your father has made upsetting remarks to you and continues to not embrace your problems. When I think of religious people, I think of caring and loving individuals who act without question or judgement. I totally respect the fact that they're your parents, but you need support right now.

Make sure you are on a routine with your medication. You need something reliable for your anxiety so you can get back to work. Once you are working again, find something you really want to do. There are classes you can take online if necessary. Get a certificate that basically ensures you'll be able to support yourself throughout your life.

These are extremely tough times for you. I wish you the best and I will be praying for you. Please keep your head up and positive thoughts flowing. Get the proper medication and begin to straighten out your life. Hang in there, Sweetie!
