Just wanted to let y'all know..

I have been on DU mostly lurking,because I have been busy bigtime. And I've been coping with a good amount of back pain too.I think it might be going out of remission with all the moving stuff and stress.

I found a place,its a supervised housing arrangement. I can't have my cats or my snake there. But my sister is taking in Bear and Sparkle until I get section 8.My counselor has a vet freind who loves reptiles who can take in my girl,Kali and will return her when I get section 8. I know a place out here that accepts section 8 and accepts pets.That's probably where I'll be after my time in residential. I'm gonna miss my furry and scaly ones alot. I love them so.My sister said she will take care of them both for me. She promised I could see my cats often.At minimum once a week.

I just hope I can deal with staff and roomates ok,and that they can deal with me ok.I hope I can handle being without my constant other species companions.
Staff seems cool and the treatment team will be working closely with my therapist and counselor at my day program.
Most of my stuff I need is packed up and already in the room. I just got a few odds and ends to get as I move in, tomorrow.
Wish me luck.

1. Good luck and good vibes being sent...

Sorry I'm not familiar with your story. Are you moving into a full time care facility for emotional issues? It sounds like it since you mentioned a treatment team. If so it's good to hear that you will now have that amount of support and comfort, though I'm sorry to hear that your issues are that bad. Those types of facilities do indeed have some amazing people. Good luck, I'm sure you will be fine, we are always here for support!! And I know it's hard to leave your pets, they are emotionally supportive and it's hard to do without them, but they will be there when you get back.

7. Be safe, you and your animal companions.

No advice from me, I'm a little short of that myself these days... what I've got at the moment is good enough, but yet not quite good enough.

Fortunately I've been there, done that. Half a century of experience.
