I've been getting off risperdal for two months. With each decrease came mania, but not too bad.
I am naseous most of the time and unbelievably tired now. I've been completely off for 8 days.
About 2 days ago I received a letter from housing saying they have terminated my from the program. (Letter sent 7/30 and they did not pay aug. rent.) Because of some paperwork, that I thought was done 2 months ago. And I did not hear back from them for months, just termination letter. They have cut my hrs at work. I do not feel I could function working full time. I have 3 of my children still at home. We have also been in our home for 15 yrs. I only have an income of $1700 a month. That's not enough for 4 people to live anywhere. We will all be homeless and my youngest son will be taken by his father. Not to a mention a house full of belongings would be lost.
I'm beside myself. I feel odd. Almost depersonalized. I am worried about what kind of state this could put me in. I'm bp. I have my counselor working on my behalf with housing.
I don't know how I can come up with an extra $1300? I may apply for disability if housing won't reconsider.

I came close to being homeless a couple years ago and I was stark crazy at the time with severe psychosis and A LOT of involuntary talking. I hope things work out for you!

In a lot of cities there is something called the " Interfaith Hospitaility Network". They can help with housing, job and even shelter you and your children. I was homeless with children two times and they helped me tremendously. Legal Aid was also helpful when I was being evicted, it gave me more time to find a place to live.

It is a hard road but determination to not give up leads the way.
Take good care
