Romy's been telling me what an outstanding job you've done raising Kat

I'm very sorry to hear all of this

So glad you have a great friend in Romy and you don't have to worry about Katalin.

Stay strong, even if it's only her future that keeps you going. One day you will be able to look forward to you own future as well.

As far as housing goes have you considered 'alternate' housing?
Things like couchsurfing.com or even housesitting or the WWOOF program?
Many people house sit year round. The are tons of house sitting websites around these days. And if you decided to try out WWOOFing you might pick up a new skill, it's not just farms, there are bakeries, yoga retreats, pottery and glass blowing studio, all sorts of places looking for a few hours work in exchange for food and shelter.

Good luck Stephanie, I hope the sun starts shinning for you soon.

Good to hear from you. I hope you find out where your dad is soon... too bad about the rest of the family. I'm glad I could help out. Kat is a lovely dog! Everyone at my place loved her. You've been through so much, you guys are in my thoughts for sure! Give it time, do what you can, and eventually all this stress and uncertainty will just be a memory.

Ugh, I am so sorry you're having to go through all of this sometimes life just sucks. Thank goodness for Chaz - I'm SO glad Kat is happy, safe, and waiting for you when you get out <3

I'm REALLY glad to hear you're safe ((hugs)).

Honestly, some shelters are HORRIBLE, but some are really not bad places at all. Ask some of the other patients in the psych unit...many of them have been to shelters before and will know where to try to find an opening. Staying there for a few days is going to be much better than blowing all your cash.

Have you been assigned a case manager or social worker to follow you after you leave the hospital? I don't know exactly how the Canadian system works, but if you can, take advantage of the opportunity.

They will do everything from help you find work, to get assistance, to find somewhere to live, transportation to and from job interviews, etc.

Is Katalin safe? - ETA: Just saw the posts about her

Thank you all so very much <3333333

The people that played the biggest role in all this were people I've never met before. people that don't know what I look like, people that don't know if I'm even a human being or a top secret, super-intellectual chimp. They listened to me, reached out, gave aid, checked in on me and my friend, took my dog in without a mention or thought of monetar reimbursement (I WILL give you something back Romy, I promise.). Thanks Chazzers, you all are a community with divine powers.

I want to thank my friends for being there, ferrying my stuff to and fro their houses, putting up with my sh!t, not giving up on me even when things get heated and always being my friends. I don't deserve either you guys or chazzers.

I want to express my admiration, love, and respect for my father, Joseph Lau whom is currently missing. The last I saw of him was a teary eyed face clutching onto my bare arm as I stepped out in front of three policeman and a loaded rifle ready to fire. (will go into details later). Dad, we will see each other again <3 Stay strong father. Don't give up.

I want to say something to my mother and brother:

You two have behaved dispicably. You were ALWAYS like this. Perfect time to bail huh?. You two always loudmouthed about "bo ying" (retribution and karma). So just watch your f&cking as$es. I'm DONE with you two bottomfeeders. Me and dad are far from the most virtuous of people - but we have ethics, scruples, morals, and dignity. Something neither of you will ever be blessed enough to possess - at least in this lifetime.
