I'll have to watch that movie...Allot of times I feel like I'm heading for a crisis. Like homelessness again and living in a shelter and being governed by programs. At one time these things were wonderful for what I needed at the time. But gaining my own independence has been a good 2 year climb and I get there, but after one year, I ended up meeting someone and we moved in together, yet with both of us being able to afford the rent ourselves in case something happens. I saved a bunch of money in case as well.....transferring my job, thought I had all my ducks in a row, and then BOOM... Suddenly I get ripped off by some "free trial company, (not blaming them, I should've been more careful) ..So the money I saved is gone, they cut the heck out of my hours here so if something happened between us, I can't afford to live here. So sometimes I just don't know how to handle all of this. It's like you HAVE to go along in life with some kind of faith that everything will be OK no matter what, however, when you've lived in the STREETS.. literally, for four months or even one day... you change... you're never the same again. I can't TRUST ANYTHING.... Sometimes, I just wish that my soul would leave my body. And more so the thought of death is like "my family doesn't really care much for me, they  let me live outside, I don't really have that many close friends, so who would miss me?" But that doesn't constitute suicide no... but it's a HORRIBLE feeling none the less.. I don't want to go out of this world as someone who committed suicide, especially for my adult children and grand-kids to remember me that way...but sometimes life gets so hard that I get overwhelmed with FEAR...the feeling of loneliness like no one, especially my own flesh and blood, cares about my well being, Feeling all alone in all my fears and worries, and then watching our country become a circus... DEPRESSING..

I just wish people wouldn't put such a stigma on mental health issues becuase most of the time I have found your treated like a second class person I guess I must have done something to deserve what I'm going through but it's hard to keep it all in your head or inside and it makes things so much worse than it has to be
