Hi gks
You have a lot to contend with. Your description of when provoked sounds like my husbands cousin. The problem is for him, it gets him kicked out of places he would like to stay and he feels really bad about acting out. Thankfully he’s never hurt anyone. He has learned that as long as he sees his therapist regularly he has better luck maintaining.
Good luck out there. I hope you find a peaceful place to live.

That's for the info post. I have bp,anxiety disorder,P TSD Avoidant personality and I truly believe borderline personality disorder. I don't flip out ever. My meds help out alot with that. If provoked I'm on s warpath and I wont stop until I suceed. I am also psychotic and have paranoia. I live alone with two cats I love dearly. And when my social security gets approved I will have to move to a senior/ disabled apartments And I would be required to regime one of the cats which I'm not willing to do. I also have case management being set up for me. So was wanting to get some ideas about my options

Yes, its very hard finding places for those "in between" people. My nephew has physical and neurological problems but an IQ of 105. He also has CP on his left side which may get him in a state program DDD. Right now trying to get him a place to live. Need more housing forvthese types of people.

My husband has a bipolar cousin in his 50s who has lived in IL and AL type facilities for years. He is now living in a group home. He loses it about once every two or three years and has to move. It’s really sad. He’s the sweetest guy and all the other residents like having him around until he gets upset and then it’s very frightening and the management has to ask him to leave. He lived with an older brother for several years until the brother passed. He’s lived in some great places and some awful places. His current home he found through his therapist. He also has cerebral palsy.

What other than bipolar is wrong with them? I think that there are group homes for people with bipolar but not assisted living when they are under 50.
