And one day everything just stopped…

by its_my_fault_how

I woke up this morning and didn’t go to work. I drove around in circles. I’m homeless save that I have a child in two separate locations. So I sleep on a cot during the week and a guest bed on the weekends. I have no energy and all. I only experience life through the veil of depression and utter calamity.

I’m a veteran and father of 2 small children. Thankfully their mothers/grandmothers are still around in my absence. And to be honest I’ve been absent for quite some time. I cannot remember my last genuine smile. My illness is so bad that I’ve been considering living on top of flat roofed businesses.

When you feel you are a burden is one thing: To know in your gut is another. Just saying..

This is heartbreaking.
I don’t pretend to know anything that might help you but there are assistance programs you might look into. Section 8 housing and a bunch I don’t even know the names of.
I hope you find something.

Hi, there indeed are various aids for military veterans, please check them out:

https://www.army.mil/soldierresources/

If I remember right, I had read somewhere that they offer housing to a soldier’s family while he’s on duty, and I’m not sure if off-duty too. I guess they offer something similar for retired veterans?

Please contact the telephone line that helps military personnel: https://www.veteranscrisisline.net/get-help/military-crisis-line
