I'm 32, have been living with my parents and brothers all my life, and have a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia, for which I take medication willingly.
My problem is I hate living here and always have done, since my teens anyway. At 32 the situation is getting silly; I'm getting regular suicidal thoughts just because it seems I'll never get away from my family. On the rare occasions when I have the house to myself for a few days/weeks I am never happier. My parents have always been overbearing, critical sorts who want me to do everything on their terms; one brother is heavily into the drug scene (I am scared of the times when parents go away and he throws parties) and has recently started inexplicably fitting (not epilepsy according to a scan - the drugs?); the other brother is a little like me mentally but refuses all help. I'm tired of years of stress because of all this and need space. My dad has money and has stated he will help, but only some time after I stay in stable employment. I think I'll only acheive any level of stability when independent on my own terms. For the same reason I don't really want his money anyway. And I hate the local area - West Midlands. Ideally I'd start anew somewhere else in the UK/Europe (I speak French and Spanish near-fluently).
What are my options? I've heard the council list is a ridiculously long wait. I've recently lost a DLA claim (currently trying to appeal) so am not registered disabled, therefore would not be a priority? What about hostels? Hitting the streets, declaring myself homeless and getting put up in a B&B? I should have a psychiatrist appointment coming up soon (waiting to hear about a new Doc); is there anything I can get them to do? Ask to be refferred to a social worker?
The situation is stupid. My parents are millionaires but I've never had any savings and have been overdrawn for the last ten years. With just £1000 in credit I could get set up in a flat and get the rent paid for while on JSA/ESA until I find a suitable job. My dad spends three times that at least on his regular holidays abroad.. Bastard has private healthcare for everything that goes wrong with him yet has put me through the NHS from the start for my motherfucking schizophrenia.. Aaarrggghhh
