    I have been living as a survivalist in the woods of this college, mentally ill. I don't take handouts from big government: food stamps, medicaid, pell grants.

    How this all started was my pregnant girlfriend got scabies and it spread, so I had no option but to leave. The hospital has confirmed that I don't have scabies, but have Schizoaffective Disorder. Anyways, I have been using some charities and haven't slept in over two weeks. ****ing rain!

    I almost want to break up with my girlfriend, but she needs help with the kid, it's due in a few weeks. I can move back in when I get a hotel room for a week, and treat myself for mites and bugs on daily basis, and then see a dermatologist to get proof that I don't have scabies - the hospital wasn't proof enough for her.:rolleyes:

    The only drugs I'm using are my psychotic meds and medical use of marijuana. No the reason I have not slept is not meth, I'm in shock, this urban/suburban/rural survivalism is not easy! I hate meth, cocaine, alcohol, heroin, et cetera.

    Anyways, living outside is cheaper, but not safe.

    Holy s**t man. Reminds me of that book "A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey.

    Its presumed, the fact you are posting online, that you have funds. What is your reason for not just getting a regular job and a small apartment to live in?

    Many places give you free access to computers... Such as the library, or an apple store...

    And why would you not accept a Pell Grant if you qualify? :confused:

    However much you hate handouts, I suggest that you get some sort of government aid, and find a shelter. The weather is only going to get colder. Your girlfriend need you by her side, not in the hospital.

    is a state of mind.
    Sometimes it helps just to rant. Sorry to hear about your numerous troubles.

    Can we do anything to help?

    in a great place
    by posting are you looking for some sort of advice? And im guessing that you will not be responding or posting often due to lack of internet. It sounds like you are in a real hard situation.

    Where is your family? How old are you? I know its personal to ask, but heck you posted your entire situation on the internet.

    be careful out there. youre bound to pick up more infections/problems.

    Sounds like you need help, which we all do at some point.

    Luckily people have come together and realized that government can help us out on this one. Think of it as a hand up, not a hand out. Once you get back on your feet, you help other people up

    Americans have this eff'ed up stance against government assistance. This is why it exists. In fact, I'm sure people who read your post would encourage you to utilise the assistance that's available to you. You're not taking advantage of the system by doing so. If you use it because you have a serious need for assistance, you're a good example of why it's good to have around.
