Yes it is still in the works. They are working on getting stuff from my doctor. I also have to turn in a release but am waiting for a callback regarding their fax number. But it's been two days and I'll have to find her business card.

I cancelled the apartment because I got a letter about another one I like better. If I end up with mom that's ok.

I live alone (well I have a cat now but only had her a year) I personally find living on my own is usually better for me because it's my own space and I can make it what I want and I don't have anyone to answer to but it can be lonely sometimes so I try to keep up with being social so I'm ok in both regards social time and alone time. I hope everything works out for you

Shadowings you sound very much like me. I do want to do things my way and as an introvert need time alone, but my fear is having too much time alone. The place I am hoping to get into is a 2 bedroom with a laundry hook-up. My ideal place in a town I recently drove through and liked. Close to job opportunities and services.

I went upstairs to work on my songs, I got an hour alone mom came up sat in the room started chatting, playing with the dog. Then went into her office nearby. Normally she would just stay downstairs but she follows me. It annoys me because I don't get time alone, barely even sleep time. She walks in on me. I don't get space and I'm feeling it today.

Because when i have i broke down. But there were other factors at the time.

I asked my case manager what would happen if i broke down. They would talk to my psych doctor, i would stay in my apartment. So that helps i thought they would ship me off to a group home.
I have lived alone for several decades, in small apartments or Single Room Occupancy hotels. Sometimes I get lonely, but I have family and friends to talk with. I am on olanzapine for my SZA. As to your psychosis, I'd talk with your psychiatrist, sooner rather than later.

My psychiatrist thinks it's a good idea for me to move out on my own. He said my mom is a bad mom for wanting me not to. Not true. However, they are making it harder emotionally. I have enough stress in my life really don't need more.

Good Luck where ever you end up. There are pro's and cons of living with some-one else and being alone. Sometimes being alone is so lonely and is not good when I am in my head too much. On the other hand it can be so good to come home and know it's you own space and that you don't have to deal with another person and their issues too. It would be easier financially to share. Wonder if you mum would allow you to get a pet?
