It's hard only you can choose when or if you cut ties.
If you do cut ties wash your hands of them.
Mental illness is no joke, nor is the genetic mental disposition. You're not their therapist or their punching bag.
You've done more than required.>First step.
A plan. It's very difficult to accrue resources as things are now.
Leaving is a must. The question is where.
Being without a house means you also have to consider the environment. As winter is approaching a plan for that is required to be considered.
Vans have space to be a house on wheels. Problem with cars is they constantly suck up money. Much like rent, but usually cheaper.
Because the place you're staying at is a shantyshack you need to vacate. Because the bills are going to grow fast. Winter and fall is more money intensive than other times (sort of everywhere).
I don't personally know enough about help centers for men.
Being well groomed (semi-kinda groomed) helps.
It's a lot, while also considering your basic needs.>Food / Water>Security (a shelter from the elements)>Relationships
Even if it's alot you can do it.
Much of what makes it overwhelming is what differences will occur.
By and large you're already living by yourself, they're actively hindering you even.
The bills you pay changes, and you're no longer feeding at least three other people.
Feeding, clothing and all the other stuff people need is a ton of money.
Whatever amount you have stored up is going to vanish ever quicker as time ticks by.
One person is relatively cheap compared to everyone and the government hounding the house (ie your money).
I assume you don't have enough to buy a van, essentials and gtfo.<On one hand you could do something risky.
You could attempt to talk with your male gene donor about the money issues.
On the other you might be caught up in stuff you want no part of. Or you get something. Or nothing changes.
You know him more than I do.
One thing is clear sooner is better. If you go for the long haul (over the winter into spring) you'll probably end up saddled with debts.
Better to leave with no debt one way or another.
Sorry my ramblings weren't much help.
