Gods, it's already February. We might be graduating in two months. Two months. Gotta love these alternative high schools. Most people go to them for behavioral or academic issues or because theyre pregnant/parenting, we're going because our mental health is so fucked up we cannot function in regular school, full stop. Yay.

I can't even begin to consider what we're going to do after we're done with school. Work and college are both out of the question, and will likely still be out of the question by the time graduation rolls around. We can barely get out of bed some days. It's just not happening, not yet. I've been looking into grouphomes, but we won't be a legal adult until this next December, so I'm not sure what we'll do in the interim. This town is lacking in everything up to and including therapists, and it's honestly pretty ridiculous.

Even being back in therapy, the time between appointments drags on so slowly, we can't just sit at home and do nothing in-between, but there's just so little we can do. There's some kind of facility near where we live, but we're fairly sure it's just for substance abuse. We don't want to go back to the hospital, really, just to have something. Some kind of structure and therapy, once a week isn't enough. There are licensed therapists at this new school we're going to, and we'll be meeting with them, but what happens after that?

I'm worried for us. The road ends a couple of miles away, and we most certainly are not wearing walking shoes.

i hope you figure out the group home stuff (or college/work stuff if you wanted to go that route), we've been looking into it for a while and can't seem to find one for mental health in our area without being committed to a psych ward first anyway. a group home would help us a lot probably.

hmm, i don't know much about -18 grouphomes, but i'm sure there must be something. D: i hope your therapists/etc can help you figure it out maybe they know some resources that aren't advertised as wildly. and thank you! for now we have our mom's house, but she's not wildly happy about us being 21 and disabled. we were going to apply for section 8 housing but we don't really have any income so i guess we're just going to wait it out.

good luck to you and i hope the rest of your school semester goes well! :) -av
