I Am Back!!!!!!!
Ended up homeless and in total despair. Me and my husband. It was so horrible because we are disabled and since we were together there weren't many places for us. The shelter case workers had nothing for us and knew although we were trying everything they threw at us that it probably wouldn't work. I almost lost my husband 2 times while there as well. He got a severe infection and it was going strait to his heart then he almost had complete kidney failure and almost lost his kidneys or his life. I got him in the hospital just in the nick of time knowing when there was something wrong with him even when others should of but didn't.
It was so hard watching my sick husband go every night into the mens shelter while I had to go into the women's side. So much happened. We were just so depressed and so hopeless at that time
It was also so hard to see so many homeless and so many more on the streets instead of the shelter either because there wasn't enough beds or they just couldn't live without their loved 1's or they just had used up all the little time they had to be able to stay. no one knows really what it is like unless you have been there which of course I wouldn't wish even on an enemy.
There was also so many other disabled people and no help with it because there were no staff that had medical knowledge at all and ambulances would be there all day every day. I saw a young woman die inside the women's shelter one night and thought that might be me one night. :`( it was one of the hardest things I went through just one of them.
So many children and young people it was heart breaking.
Also this made me the most mad and the most sad and the most disgusted.... so many Vets. So many that were not just our soldiers that had sacrificed so much for this country but had been promised they would be taken care of by our country and they are not. At all!!!!!!
Horrible, terrible to leave these people, any people like this anywhere not just here but all over we are people and humans but we are not treated by people that I feel are not human at all.... how can they all look away.... no human should starve.... none!
This is also not the 1st time I was homeless in my life but it had been a long time ago for me and I was a teenager.
We also lost everything as if we went through a fire or flood or some other disaster. I feel for all those that have that happen too.
We finally for now though are stable. So I count my blessings and we are trying to help as much as we can those that are in need that we have met from that horrible experience. I would still gone through it all to meet those people and vets we have. Even though we lost some memories and some irreplaceable things, in the end it is just stuff, we are just so thankful we have each other and other people that care for us as we do them. We shall hope, pray, send good thoughts whatever you all are ok with, lol, that you all will be ok and one day I hope to see more real humans on this planet that will care for the other people also living on it.
Please government don't tell us everything is getting better, go to a homeless shelter look really on the streets you will then see what needs to be done before you can say it is getting better ok. Also all those billionaires and all those kinds of people you are part of the problem. Sorry to put it in your face but as long as the $$$$ is sitting in the bank collecting dust so many people are also becomeing nothing but dust as well and that $$$ isn't put back into the economy. The only $$$ being put into it is from those that dont have much and guess where it going right to those kinds of people our "Land of Opportunity" will always work against us... always because of that.
Also why is it government that there are so many orgs and charities that ask to help the Vets, though that is a nice gesture, it is also coming from those that have less than those of the 1% or the government so hey get a clue ok. How about you do what you promised them when they were either drafted or enlisted. How about you give them absolute free medical no matter where they need to go to get medical attention and make sure none and I mean none of them are homeless. Please I am asking you to be human that is all and be honorable as those soldiers have been. You promised, you gave your word, does that mean anything? It should.
anyhoo hope you all are ok and doing better than we have been. Missed doing my art soooo sooo very much and feels sometimes I am having to learn things again but that ok I like to learn.
My MS is really bad and have almost lost my legs and it is hard to use my right arm and hand but well teaching my left at the same time lol I will never ever, never give up my art to my lastest breath It is my life.
Take care and so glad to see you all again!!!!!
