applying for housing, complicated family situation

    hi all
    Have posted numerous times here, about a difficult family dynamic, this is 100 percent not what this post is about, hoping the mods allow this one, as I really am in need of advice, as i'm at my whit's end
    I would like to apply for council housing. However, due to multiple things going on here that shouldn't be, my parent's are paranoid about me applying, won't allow it in fact. I would also need evidence to support my application, from gp, consultant, etc. I do feel i have a strong case for housing, in terms of my mental health, well-being etc.
    The other week something came up in relation to what I've posted about before, and i now see it's time to get out. Not that i didn't see it before, i just feel trapped and no idea how to go about this, when I can't have post come here, and can't ask for help to go places, or get stuff to support my application, seen as family are against it in the first place.
    I do not feel independence is an unreasnnable thing to want, i'm just not sure how to go about this in my current situation.
    Anyone who's gone through applying for housing with difficult family dynamics, I'd really appreciate some feedback. My mental health is so bad that I feel completely hopeless worthless and useless every day here. because of the virus, i'm not allowed go anywhere by myself, but there's always something else going on, so that i feel like an inconvenience asking to go anywhere, so don't bother.
    Hoping for any advice at all and that this post can stay up.
    Thanks in advance anyone who reads and responds

    Mod Note

    Afterglow, thank you for your post. However as previously said to you, your situation is such that is beyond what people can help you with here. For that reason it was recommended to you that you take a break from the forum for a while and seek professional help. I would urge you to please follow this advice and perhaps seek the advice of your GP or take a look at the Support Organisations thread here to find suggestions on where to get the most appropriate help you require.

    With the above in mind, I am closing this thread, with best wishes that you get the help you need.
