I just received a call from the local homeless shelter. A spot is opening up in early July. I’d be a fool not to take it, even though technically I could be in my apartment for July. But this situation with the apartment is not sustainable, the first month has me already in the negative numbers. ohgodohgodohgod… that and my heart pounding in my ears is all I can hear. The lady was nice and didn’t demand a yes/no commitment just now, and so I said I’d call her back when I had time to assess.
A year ago I said I’d rather commit suicide than be homeless.
Now it has become a matter of when and not if I move to the shelter. Looks like that is about to be answered.
