So I was just discharged from a 2 week stay at a mental ward after I made statements to crisis counselors over the phone (for the sake of privacy, I will omit what it was that I said) and now that I’m stable after a 6 month psychotic break (March 6th - September 9th, 2019, from my 21st birthday up until the day I was discharged from the hospital), I urgently need your advice right now. My counselor talked about housing me in this “in-patient apartment place” called “Transition”, and I just got finished talking to my friend over the phone about moving there, and he told me that the place was a homeless shelter and NOT a halfway house as my counselor was terming it. I’ve got until Friday to see my counselor about this place that they’re sending me to, and if it really is a homeless shelter, then the people at the facility must think that I’m a lost cause. The only thing that happens at homeless shelters is that everything belonging to you gets stolen and you get jumped, raped and/or possibly killed. I don’t want my family to be paying funeral bills if they kill me or for me to be facing down a federal grand jury indictment right now if I kill them, so I need your advice. If I have to go homeless, then so be it. But I must at least live within walking distance from a psychiatric facility to get my meds, because from what I’ve heard, that’s not a pleasant experience. But at least I’ll still live on my own and receive my own disability money in that case. And if I die on the streets, at least I’ll die a free man. Is there anyone who knows what this place is all about? It’s in South Carolina. The homeless shelter my friend told me about is actually in Columbia. I need more information about this place before I leave to see her. If it is, I’ll reject it right in front of her and opt for the streets, I don’t care what she says or does. If not, and it is an in-patient apartment place, then I’ll be cool. Anyone with info?
