I am a 27 year old woman disabled veteran. I have had schizophrenia since Sept of 06. I am unable to live alone anymore, as it is making my illness worse. I am losing my memory. I prefer to not be around men in any kind of housing situation. I would feel more comfortable with other women who are suffering with my illness as well.
Does anyone have any information about community housing, boarding homes, or shared housing. I live in Texas, and the resources here are slim to none for the mentally ill. I feel very limited. I almost feel as if I need to leave the state, because there are few options for me here.
I want to go to NAMI and find other people who have my illness. IT is difficult to relate to others, as I have no feelings, and the illness keeps me talking inside my head 24/7 pretty much, so it is hard to concentrate, etc. I do not have a vehicle to get to NAMI meetings however.
IF anyone has any advice please let me know.
