Thank you all SO much for your replies, suggestions and encouragement. I'm so sorry that you all suffer w/ such pain. It is helpful to know that I'm not alone and to share feelings/concerns with others who "really" do understand what it's like to have to live with unrelenting pain.
PAlady, we really are a LOT alike! I'm glad you shared some of your story w/ me. I'm sorry that you too have to worry about
your future living situation! I did everything I could to try and avoid having to move back home. I'd been on my own for 20-25 years and loved it! Being able to come 'home' to my own place, where I had privacy, could lay on the couch & watch whatever I wanted to on TV, talk w/ friends on the phone at any hour, eat whenever & whatever I wanted, take a nap at anytime...and not feel bad about
not doing housework, etc...is all but a remote fantacy now. It's hard to live in someone elses house. I am thankful & very greatful that I have a place to live... but I do feel as though "I lost me" I'm very depressed & lonely. I can't have friends here, or date (if I could), b/c I have no privacy. I have tried having guests, but the stress in this house, and my s-dad's crude & inappropriate "teasing" had them running for the door.
How do I go about
finding a place to live that's Section 8? The waiting list for County Housing is huge. I know people wait years for anything to
open. I've been on the list for 3+ years.
Thank you ALL so much for caring. It means SO much to me
