Tales From the Shelter – 25

September 13, 2010 at 10:22 pm

A shot of the penthouse I got put in after being bit by bed bugs in a hotel my family put me up in for two nights…not bad, eh? ūüėÄ

There’s a reason I’ve been taken down to ground zero and while living in my van was tough, the shelters no better and now the Silly Man Hotel – which is stressful living – I’ve managed to stabilize and come to grips with many of my issues. ¬†After having worked on myself for gawd knows how many years with various shrinks, meds, psyche day care and the psyche ward, I have been, for the first time in my life, living on my own.

After high school , which I never did graduate due to non-attendance (booze and drugs were the order of the day), I went right into a living situation with my boyfriend (and future husband) and a couple of other friends.

Have I been acting co-dependant with the moniker of independant being thrown at me?  Yes, this paradox existed.  A saving grace has been that addiction was never an issue (save for smoking like a chimney).  I now have the task of trying to budget which is difficult for most bipolars , and I have a definite numbers allergy .

My faith is tested constantly but while I’ve been assaulted in a shelter, ripped off for my lap top and others trying to petty thug me into cigarettes or spare change, I’ve never lost hope. ¬†That hope is there particially because SOME sembalence of social services still exist in this province, eroded as they are. ¬†After all, this is still Canada and while not in it’s semi-socialist glory with conservative governments at the helm, it is a nation that holds some heart behind it’s ¬†glossy bullshit propaganda pamphlets.

“Don’t force things, let it flow’…a teaching from a medicine person years ago. ¬†and sure enough, clickety clack, things are falling into place…when I’m truly ready to move out and on I know housing will come through for me.

Big Tele-Tubby had a tooth yanked today and while in the dentist’s office was offered a receptionist’s job. ¬†Will she take it, who knows, ¬†but it is a wonderful demonstration of flow. ¬†Applying for jobs all over hell’s half acre (reduced to 1/4 acre in these times of inflation, recession and high real estate…even the devil got hit) is like turning the faucet on and off. ¬†To let the stream run it’s infinite course one merely has to follow one lead to another. ¬†Thus we must look for the clues and ask the right questions…I suppose that’s why novels like Lord of The Rings and other quests exist.

Martha is getting desperate for attention again so is gabbing at 800 decibels on the phone so everyone can hear AGAIN how she’s had five careers (her last one being a ‘personal attendant’, which means she looked after an old man…that’s a career?). ¬†New Girl still doesn’t have a nickname other then ‘new girl’ and she was warned by us that one of us is a universally dreaded person (U.D.P.). ¬†To date she still talks with Martha and hasn’t complained about it.

New girl has complained about her window though, as it’s right beside the smoke pit and the powers that be won’t turn the light off. ¬†New girl made black out curtains to no avail so yesterday taped a bunch of flattened cardboard boxes to her window. ¬†It just so happens it NOT against any rules, and she’s sleeping now for the first time in two weeks. ¬† We’re all quite surprised the tape job passed muster.

Little Tele-Tubby bought a smoke from me today and I’m thinking, oh shit, we’re at that time of month when people are jonesing for payday and us disability cases get hit up all the time. ¬†Nothing like class wars amongst the down and out. ¬† If it exists on this level how are we to end it on any level? ¬†The welfare cases really resent us and the general public can’t understand why we aren’t able to work when we ‘look’ fine.

Bossy’s out at night classes now , I phone a mutual friend of Bossy and the Queen of the Caribean and it looks like the Queen has settled down some and she doesn’t hate Bossy anymore. ¬†Also, the rats she complained about in her new place turned out to be mice, and not as many as told. ¬†But then, a Queen is largely about drama, is she/he not?

I haven’t been interested in the news lately so don’t even know if that bugger-eyed group in the U.S. burned the Quran or not. ¬†Bossy pointed out that Obama should have kept his mouth shut and had someone like John McCain appeal to the frantic lunatics….she’s probably right.

The moon is still in the sky, sirens are loud. ¬†Clouds make pretty patterns and big trucks spew diesel. ¬†This tiny, living organism called Earth continues on as do humans, for now. ¬†And lest I leave anyone with a picture of doom amongst bloom, the prisoners on the third floor are having a jam session tonight – oh ya, they’re singing the blues!
