Forum Post: To leave my life in Boston - is it in vain?

More of a direct, personal question to those on the ground:

Will I be alone in saying goodbye my stressful, dead end existence here in Boston? - where I barely have a roof over my head, no job or unemployment benefints, no friends, and an overall constant isolating struggle?

I'm ready to tie off my loose ends. I watched the movement take foot last autumn and with envy, swore I wouldnt sell out if the circumstances happened that I was left with nothing. I never joined, but voiced my support. Things changed over the course of the winter. I LITERALLY HAVE NOTHING

No matter how I look at it, I'm screwed - and this isnt merely a feeling, its a cold hard fact.

I'm not afraid to leave the little comfort I have, I'm not afraid to risk life and limb at this point. I dont want this ball to be dropped. I am sad, but I am more angry than anything else. I want to leave for NY where I feel like I am being pushed to by an unseen force, but I dont want this to be in vain.

The question isnt "is it worth it?" but more "will it be another isolating experience?"

So wait you're going to leave the best welfare state in the nation to go be homeless somewhere else? That's dumb - there are a million resources to help you in MA like MA Health for instance. New York is scary too very scary at night - go online for help and people / support groups. - Hell talk to me if you want - Any friend of Occupy ... is mine as well I think it would be nice to have a page on this site were people can express their day to day struggles and seek support for depression and hopelessness - where everyone else tells you to suck it up and that's life we're saying well no that should not be how you have to live. Aside from which the police are cracking down and evicting people from the parks in NY
