Don't get into a depressed state over it,it may turn out that changing the way you have been living turns out to be what it takes to put you into the
path of a better life.
My last experience with near homelessness landed me in a place where I did not have to pay rent,in exchange for fixing up the place where I live now
,but I have a job which made things easier.
Whatever you do though,dont' let the hopelessness and helplessness overwhelm you,it will consume you,and a lot of people out there will play with
you like toys if they know you are homeless.It is a cruel world,
People fear the homeless because they know they are only a week or two away from it themselves.
Homelessness is about as close to true freedom as you can get,what do you think those retired people in RV's are?,they just have a mobile
Be careful,but dont' panic.Remember,when things are at their worst,they can only get better.
Keep clean and use friends showers,or park showers to get clean,keep looking down on the ground for money,it is lying everywhere if you look,for food
and laundry,or use friend's washers/dryers.
Get a bicycle and a trailer if you need to transport more massive things,use a backpack that is not all ratty if you can find one,and store the
majority of your stuff with friends,just carry the essentials with you,and relax while you can.
You miss a lot in a paniced state,so wait and let it pass before you worry about improving your situation.
There should be no lack of company for you out there,a lot of people are losing their asses right now.
If you have a car,protect it,and your driving priveledges with a veangance,by not using either unless absolutely necessary!.
Lastly,don't be a weaktit,keep it together and you will be fine.
I have been homeless (technically I guess) for four years and have a job and bank account.And I am a dumbass,so you should have no problems.
