    like you've made some good steps towards the first goal. See how the meds help over the next couple of weeks, see how the therapy helps over the next couple of months. Now that you have things started here, especially if the SSDI goes through that may put you well on the way towards the "go home" goal, especially if you can transfer things back home. School is a good goal, but I'd wait until you are feeling more stable, both in where you are living and where you are in your mental space. I would suggest if you do any school right now, keep it to online so it's portable as much as possible.

    •  I don't know what to do with the new information (7+ / 0-)

      re SSDI.  Given how I was treated the last time I was at the local SSA office - I don't know what to do or expect or if it will make a difference.  I don't even know who handles the actual evaluation of the claim - only that the claim was transferred and they are "working on it."

      I know if I was at home I could go in and sort it out - but it's a much smaller office, with people I know by name -and they didn't treat me like shit, either.

      School was mentioned as an eventual goal, not an immediate one.  I can barely leave my room because of the constant barrage of messy kitchen (my OCD nightmare) right outside my door - and the way the house is laid out, the next thing after the kitchen and dining area is the cat and FOXzone - and I simply won't go in there other than to clean when they aren't home and the TV is off.  Even then I won't sit in there because it makes my allergies go off.  I just hate the mess.

      I am taking a tae kwon do class once a week to get out of the house and get exercise.  I still worry the neighbours will shoot me if I  go walking around the neighbourhood alone and my Mum won't go with me.  I sometimes drive to the store alone, I like that a bit.

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
