    UPDATE...

    So after 7 long months i got everything out of storage and have sold my roland td9 in the pic its in the blue box with the rack on top of it,i let it go very cheap ,anyway the guy will be taking it away in a week or 2 and when that spot is clear i'll be setting up my drums again ,i'll be using the kd120 instead of the big bass drum for space reasons anyway it will be set up soon and i'll post pics when its all set up.I didn't think it was all going to fit in my small room but it looks like its going to work,fingers crossed.

    Good to hear you at least have a roof over your head! Good luck anyway! Maybe a practice pad can "keep you busy", and allow you to work on some technique / keep your technique on level.

    glad to hear you found something - you have shelter, and that's important!

    maybe you could get one of these
    https://www.amazon.com/Sabian-QTM14-...JS/ref=sr_1_1?
    or a used pintech or alesis mesh pad and a used snare stand to keep your chops fresh and have a little drumming fun.

    You have a roof over your head mate, that's the main thing. The rest will follow gradually. Keep the faith

    Hi, I understand a bit how you can feel. I can't live in my own home since near 2 year now. I am forced to live at my parents home and find the little place to put my own stuff where I can. I have manage (with difficulty) with them to put my e-drum in the only place I could (in the basement, sad room where it's very cold when I drum there, not heater possible too).

    All that because I have been buying a house with "hidden problems" and I am in justice now and it will takes long time and lot of money.(but it seems on the good way slowly).

    Try to keep positive mindset, read a bit of "philosophy" (stoicism, etc) and breathe. In short, manage yourself to not be crazy and keep strong.

    Best wishes


    edit: use practice pads. You can develop awesome chops for when you will play again. Maybe get a hi-hat too, it take little room if you can. Bass drum on the sofa (have seen that) and play on different pillow for moving around, etc. Play also with music tracks if you feel bored sometimes. there is special tracks for rudiment I have read.

    good news.. you can still do your job .. some day you'll get back in a 'luxury' situation again.. (that's all it is..)
    and nobody / nothing can make you stop practicing though.. you can still work on a lot of things with just a pad and sticks..
    (and don't 'really' need pedals for feet..) one time i didn't have a practice room /or an e kit.. and then i joined a band who had
    a private practice room.. after a month or so.. i got my own key.. and could practice there ..

    One option you could have is to join a church/worship ensemble for a while. They can use the talent, and you get a place to store your drums, play them pretty much at will, and perhaps keep it going until things improve. I am serious.
