I don't suppose anyone in the Pittsburgh area has a spare room they'd like to rent? [View all]

Things are looking a bit iffy on the housing front for me, as my SIL is getting a lot of pressure from her friends to kick my sorry ass out of her house. Well, I can only afford about $200 a month for the room, I can see their point (that's taking into account food and other bills I have to take care of).

I would love to move back to Pittsburgh (or Philly in a pinch), as Florida is an incredibly depressing place to live. Unfortunately, one needs to be a PA resident to get housing help in PA (what a novel idea!). So even though I'm eligible for any subsidized housing around, I don't live where I can get to it.

It's annoying, I'm a quiet guy who keeps to his room virtually 24/7 and doesn't bother anybody, but apparently that's not good enough for some people. Grouse, grumble.
