And even just - I mean, this is a peculiarly Oxford situation. The price of accommodation, and the limited amount of accommodation there is. Maybe the university and the colleges, and the council I suppose, need to work together. Because that's not just my experience, that's the experience of a couple of PhDs I know, and postdocs, of either not finding something, being just in really bad living conditions, or actually of, of this - you know - actually being homeless. Even if it's not sleeping on the streets, it's still not having some place to go. And I don't think that's right at all. How does that relate to disability? I mean, I that, that - It's just another stress. You know. I ended up living in a B&B for a week. Like you know? Don't tell me that that's not going to make, I mean, that experience directly made me anxious. Or caused anxiety. Anxiety that stayed with me for a few months after that.
