hello all, back on forum after a while.( struggling to even type).
have ptsd after rascist attack 25yrs ago ;going through really bad patch which is final stage before full recovery.should get large compensation claim end of year / early next year hopefully.unfortunately only support is elderly mother who is 80yrs with really serious health issues whom i live with ; she's thinking of selling house/moving into care therefore i could be homeless soon.i'm very socially isolated;friends turned backs on me and have no other family for support.feel as if my life is crashing down because of health and potential homelessness.either i'll recover,get compensation or my life after fighting ptsd for 25 yrs will come crashing down.have good occupational therapy help and new dr but they can only do so much.really feel my life can go either way, catastrophising a little. help,advice,support......

The loss of a place to stay must be one of the worst stresses to deal with. I don't know which country you are in, but if in UK, you should get to the council and put your name down for somewhere to live. If homeless, i think there are hostels as temporary accomodation.

Don't rely on the compensation coming through before you take action. It is better to be proactive for the sake of your stress levels/illness. Tackle things head on.

Hi I'm in England and our systems probably work differently. I had a care coordinator who referred me to mental health focused supported housing. From there I made friends and the local council put me on the priority waiting list for independent living. A friend of mine had to wait 5 years for compensation, there was a delay after delay and she know what she was entitled too and didn't receive a lot in the end, but the amount was appreciated all the same. We have both also had a long road with complex PTSD and I wish you light in this stage of your recovery. I am sorry everything is happening at once and I cannot offer you any specific suggestions for Scotland but I hope it all works out and you have your own place you can call home near to your mum.
