Going to be homeless soon and need advice on what to do, how to survive, etc : So, I'm in a pretty bad situation. I recently lost my job because my company went under and due to some really bad luck with rainy days I'm really low on my savings. I'm a young adult so I wasn't getting paid very much in the first place so it's not like I ever had a ton to begin with's bad now. Am in the process of filling for unemployment but apparently it takes quite a while to hear back from what I've heard. ​ I owe rent to my landlord for my room I rent out in a couple days. It's $600 and I pawned my PC recently for $200 but don't really have any other assets I can pawn out I also don't really have anyone I can turn to. I'm a bit of an introvert and I haven't spoken with my family in a while because they're pretty...toxic. Very racist, very negative, the kind of people who will step on people to get their way. Mom is basically a big Karen. And it's not even so much about I can't stand them it's just the bridge has been totally burnt. ​ So, I'm going to be homeless soon. I haven't lived in this place very long so I don't have a leg to stand on with making him give me an eviction notice...not that I would want to, I don't like taking advantage of people. He's not willing to work with me because he has 4 rooms he rents out in his house, and he uses them to pay his mortgage so he can't afford to lose a months of payment, which I totally understand. It's just not possible for me to come up with it. Between my Paypal, Venmo, Bank account and Real world wallet I have $22.53 combined. ​ So...basically, I'm going to be homeless. I've never been homeless since I was a child and I didn't think it would ever happen to me as an adult we are. I'd be lying to you if I didn't say I was having panic attacks and feel like I'm going to pass out at any moment. ​ I got new employment lined up, but it's going to be 2 weeks before I can take the position. (I'm a junior tradesman who specilizes in Waterjet) but suffice to say I am going to be homeless. It would take a miracle to save me from it. I need advice on here I can go, what I can do, from other people put in this situation. Please, give me advice it might help calm me down if I have a gameplan laid out. I'm just really scared for the future. Dark times ahead. Full Article
