Post subject: pregnant and homeless
my mother kicked me out and i had nowere to live.
im 7 months pregnant and have been homeless for about 5 months.
i'm staying at a hostel miles away from everyone i know. most days i feel depressed and lonely. sometimes i wonder if i want the baby but then i see the scan pics and i feel better. im woried about the future will i still be in a hostel when the baby is born? . '' i want my baby to have a proper home but i wonder am i asking too much '' i should be happy that i have somewere safe and warm to stay. am i being ungratefull ''
i was wondering if there is anyone who is in the same situation and if they could offer any advice.

thanx for replying
I'm on a council priority list but it has been five months and I still haven't heard from them. maybe a new year will mean a new home!
I don't leave my room very often, I'm quite shy and struggle to talk to new people.
I have recently started painting models and that helps me to relax and I feel allot better.
but now iv'e got the flu.
happy new year!
