[quote:Anonymous Coward 10110709:MV8yMjM4NDI2XzM3OTc4MjE1Xzk0MkUyMURC] Good luck,OP. Everybody makes mistakes. No one is perfect. Some think they are, but they aren't. Assuming you're a guy, there's not much help from public or private agencies for adult men. Most are aimed at women and women with children. But there are many programs aimed at alcoholics and drug addicts, and the government money must be used specifically for these two issues, so you might just lie and tell a social worker or whoever that you're an alcoholic and/or drug addict [assuming you aren't] and that will grease the wheels so-to-speak. People who're diagnoses as mentally ill [including things like depression], alcoholic or drug addict are even entitled to subsidized housing, in addition to things like SSI, whereas 'regular' homeless guys aren't. It's unfortunately a game and guys like you have to play it. Good luck. [/quote]
So as of today I am officially homeless.
I won't bore you all with long sob stories.
About a year ago lost my job of twelve years, couldn't find new work, made some bad financial choices, and today I sit in the public library on my old laptop typing away as all my posessions lay in three small suitcases very close to where I am sitting.
I think this might possibly be the worst place to be homless, given the horrible heat.
So I have seventy-five cents to my name, am not sure where I'll be putting my head down to sleep tonight, and was wondering if anyone else out there has been in a similar prediciment.
I'll update my story here as I can. Maybe a few people will find it interesting.
