Homeward Bound

back in hometown.  parking in brother's backyard.  he helps with refilling water jugs, errands, helps with dumping tanks (at local state park campground) and laundry.  he and his wife switched to unscented so could do mine. 
getting no help from any agencies or groups.  only food bank is drive through, and they put stuff in back so it has to be empty, so can't even borrow car for that because everyone has trunks full of junk. 
housing association was accepting applications. silly me, thinking that meant they were DOING something with the applications.  but no, after couple of months I checked with them, just to see status, and well, they had no funding, were just advertising that accepting applications because required to.   O_o   [insert lots of cussing here] 
oh, and with changing states, one wasn't covering my medicare premium, so that's now going to be taken out of my social security. 

oh well, at least I have nice landlord and wifi.


I just want a home.  I'm feeling cursed, with the constant obstacles taking up time, money, resources, and leaving me spiraling downwards. 
Many things in the motorhome don't work, like the water pump, cooking, fridge.  The door is broke and won't shut all the way, so I rig it with bungee cords and bicycle lock, and then hang blanket on inside at night to try to keep cold out.   I haven't had shower in while, all my clothes are dirty, I try to hand wash but that is painful (and messy). 

I've been trying to sell crafts and some other things, but no one is interested.  I am terrified to panhandle, besides I can't stand for long. 
I contacted charities, but nothing for help except the food pantries, of which most I have to refuse or pass along.
