this may sound crazy but that sounds like my kinda place!

We do not have trailer parks in the uk. we have holiday caravan parks. But we do have social housing, l lost my house because l signed as guarantor against it for my es debt he promised to pay it back but of course he had no intention of doing so. l and my children were left homeless but got a social housing home eventually until we had to leave again because of threat's to kill us by gangs of druggies and hooligan's who didn't want us on their housing estate because we were not 'one of them'.So l know how awful it must be for you. A relative took us in until we found a safer place to live, it was not so nice inside the new place but 'you cannot put a price on peace of mind', it was safer and that is what counts.

Yeah man that sounds like a rough spot

we rented a housing commission house as a child and there were people shooting guns at our windows and at our cats I was so afraid to go out side and play ... many of my panic disorder sent in and fear of leaving the house... and it just made it worse after the house fire ... I think if you can you should get away from that. guns are bad news... we used to have them on the farm when my grandfather had cattle ... but that was a different time ... he had a few things stolen ... we have had break ins here as well. I live in fear always of attacks and assaults and break n enters here ... all the time and its not a gangster neighbourhood but they are weird here... strange people with strange ways. I hate the motor bikes the most... waking me up all hours of the night. I became so afraid of break ins all the time I started sleeping with a huge cattle knife under my pillow ... well its about 50cm or more long... and sharp ... someone broke into my room and it haunted me just too much ... I had to find some protection ...

It's not always easy, but my mom tries to keep us kids positive. She is also a hoarder and its hard to move around. I want her to get rid of the stuff but how do you do that? How do you tell someone who is so attached to all this stuff that it aint healthy?

ok how dos this have any thing to do with this goupe?

I used to live in a trailer park too, I didn't like it they deteriorate so fast and when it rains I could feel the thunder, when people walk in the foot steps, is not me.

Am sorry to hear all that. Am from africa and although there is poverty here, we dont have problems of drugs or gangs. All the stuff you talked about we only see in movies.And drugs are problems that a few rich kids have but its rare.

aww. I'm sorry you have to go through that. I've lived in 3 trailers and have never had those problems. My dad always checks the trailer park's history before he moves up there.

I know what you mean, it was the same for me in all the low income apartments I lived in. Dons of drugs people sitting outside all day parting. And lots of violence I knew a guy who went crazy shooting his shotgun off, while screaming at his girlfriend. Then my moms friend shot her self outside our apartment and my mom set up all time taking bullet out, they were both high!

dude that's really bad. i'm sorry you had to go through that.
