I can tell you how I ended up homeless and it has nothing to do with drugs or mental illness. I worked at my job. I went in everyday and I was never late. I worked 18-hour shifts sometimes because that was what was demanded of me. After a couple years on the job I had a severe injury and the injury ended up causing me to be instantly disabled. I was immediately fired after filing a worker's comp claim. Yes this is illegal and no the government doesn't give a shit. I tried to fight my company in court but they hired the best lawyers and I ended up not getting a penny for my medical and not getting any money for my time out of work and I could not work after that for years and that's how I ended up homeless.
