I see some local tiny homes listed for under 10 thousand.  I wish I had one.  What I have now is too much to take care of.

I've thought about it...as long as you have a plot of land and utility hookups ready to go, it would be great. I've also thought about living in a mid-sized RV. Cops chase those around here though.

Except there is a possibility for a broken leg to fully heal. Has there ever been historical record of depression being cured fully? 

We would have to ask a corpse, I'm afraid...

Getting closer and closer to my breaking point. I can’t take much more of this. And knowing that I am basically powerless to change anything and that I am totally alone (outside of my once weekly therapy appointment) is a tough pill to swallow.  

All I can say is, I hear ya. I no longer have therapy appointments now that I'm unemployed and have no "health insurance." I rely on my cats for therapy now.

Greetings!

I'm Bill. 54M. Central Maine. Depression has shaped the entirety of my life.
I think I've been good at times.

I'm home on my couch on mini-vacation following my 14th ketamine infusion this morning. We increased my dose to near-wonderful effect. I may have even tripped briefly.

I'm kinda' high right now. Sleepy. Nothing hurts.   

There's a warm fire in the oven

and it's cloudy outside.

Thanks for the update! I'd like to try that treatment sometime. I've heard many good things about it.

It's what I looked for for a couple of year JD, while living in the RV park I was in.  My new spot is a purchased--partly financed-- lot, with utilities from the city.  This place is a 55-or-older community.  This is a different arrangement sort of.  Most here, of I think of maybe 150 or so spots, have their motor home or trailer on their lot, and either a shed, or a "casita."  Lots are big, and paved curving streets separate the dwellings.  I live in a small Jayco trailer, with a slideout, and it suits me.  I think prices for the lots--35 to 50 thousand in this cooler AZ valley--are still reasonable.  I know all the tiny alternatives are starting to go up in price.

Welcome to the forum!   I am suffering from depression and severe anxiety.  Generally speaking my anxiety is under control.

Yep, it's not too easy to find land to put a tiny home on in the UK otherwise we'd all be doing it lol. House prices are too much. Crazy crazy prices

How are you doing duck? 

I slept all day today but to be fair I did not sleep much last night.   It is very cold here.  Minus 21 Celsius/ minus 7 Fahrenheit.

Canada have open land for a country house.

All we really need is one decent size room a shed with windows basically.  Those are the ones I see for under 10 thousand.  If you type in tiny home the ones that come up as shed are going to be cheaper because who would want to live in a shed they would think.  I know a guy that his mom kicked him out of the house and he's been living in her shed for I don't know 25 years now.  It has power and a tv and heat and everything.  Anyway you can do it.  If you see cabin or home in the description it's more expensive.

Where I am there is a nearby shed and casita builder, Mr. Shed.  The sheds--8x10, but they come in lots of sizes---run about 3,000 to 5,000, but if you want it on a cement pad, that's extra, and you can have water and electric to them.  But, we have a housing code in this development, and you are not supposed to live in them.  If they get much above 8x10, there a local town rules about codes too.  A "casita" by the same builder, has room divisions, etc., and is in fact a small house that has to again conform to city building codes.  They cost anywhere from 30,000 up.  I plan to have a shed built in the next year I hope. 

I looked all over the southwest U.S. for a spot like I found.  I didn't want to be cutoff, isolated in location, and I wanted to be out of the suck.  Most of the land advertised for small areas at a great rate lacks access to civilization, or no utilities.  Gas, water, and electric are important.  Living off the grid makes a good tv series, but doing it takes a lot of preparation if you've going to be comfortable.

Exhausted these days.  I went to bed at 6 pm yesterday and woke up at 2 am.   I am feeling ill.  Maybe flu.  Who knows. Did laundry and watched sports.  

Sorry to hear you're ill 🤒 Make sure you get plenty of rest and TV 😀 Thanks for reminding me, I need to do laundry too 👍

I want to live like Bubbles on Trailer Park Boys, but I'm about to end up like Ricky. And my car is a lot smaller than the huge 1975 Chrysler Ricky sleeps in.

My daughter and I are getting over a nasty virus. I recovered fairly quickly but she's still hacking like a drunk old golfer. Taking her to the urgent care later, to wait for 5 hours and get charged $500 just for showing up (neither one of us is insured now).

I hope you feel better soon, brother.

I don't know what the code is.  I'm sure the government would expect him to pay them every year to live in his mom's shed and I'm sure he's been doing that.:unsure:

Can never be free from the ruling class.
