    It's not much but I try to live in the moment instead of worry about the future which could have many doors to open and for us who live with mental health and disabilities automatic doors God bless you Oscar

    Morning @OSCAR1 welcome to our fantastic group.
    I'm sorry i am not in the position to comment on your problems, but i needed you to know we are a caring bunch, i'm sure you will be greeted by some of the other members when the site wakes up.
    I would like to add that there is always light at the end of a tunnel, sometimes we can't see it our selves but others may, i am so hoping other members will find that for you.
    Stay strong

    Hi @oscar1 :) 

    It sounds like you've got quite a lot on your plate at the moment. Thank you for reaching out to us. I hope that our friendly members will be able to continue to support you through this. 

    Has anyone given you an indication of when you might be able to move into more permanent accommodation? I know that these things can take time, unfortunately. 

    I'd encourage you to get in touch with Shelter to talk about your situation, and see if they can help you find a way forward.

    Do you mind me asking whether you live alone, or with others?

    Are you receiving any support to help you manage your mental health at the moment? If you haven't already, I'd encourage you to speak to your GP about how you've been feeling.

    Would you mind telling us a little bit more about what you mean by this?

    How are you getting on today @oscar1

    I can see that you've said you have support from a mental health nurse. Do you find them helpful?
