Hello everyone I hope you’re well.

I suffer from social anxiety and depression. I am currently homeless and am going to be put into a temporary accommodation which is a shared hostel!

My social anxiety is killing me having to live with different people I don’t know and sharing facilities I can’t cope with that! I was told by the council that this was a homeless relief duty and would last for 56 days before I can even be considered for a council flat list.

I don’t know if I will be able to cope with this situation I’m used to be on my own and feel socially awkward I don’t feel comfortable people can pick up that there’s something wrong with me and I’m just anxious being around people. There are days where I’m scared to even go to the bathroom because I don’t wanna see any people. This is stressing me out and I’m starting to feel suicidal again. Someone please help me is there no way of skipping this 56days homeless relief duty and just get on a council list straight away or no way to be put into your own temporary accommodation and how do I go on about it ?

I have no idea what that situation is like. Maybe you can hear from someone who does or read about it online.
