Louise A Holcomb BurkeIve been homeless. Isnt as easy to NOT do these things....here r a few of the daily obstacles they can face.. *Where r they supposed to use the restroom? None of the stores allow them. *Work? Sure get a job, but how do u keep it.. *Cant shower, cant wash clothes, have to be at shelters n such to get meals and help durin day... how do "i" work? *What address do i use on application? What phone number? *How do i wash my work clothes? *How do i cook food, so i can save money, instead of buyin junk food? Where do i store the food? Keep it cold? (*the camps/tents cant be touched due to new laws last yr... unless their r other issues. They cant take blankets n such anymore. But they do) *PERSONAL SAFETY... how do u protect urself? Ur belongings? From police(not bashing them, so dont go there) and other homeless?? And last but NOT LEAST!! how do you protect ur MIND??? the constant putdowns by the general population, the feelings of desperation, degrading urself for a simple meal n safe place to sleep. The complete ISOLATION from being NORMAL... constantly being told ur not, how cld u be soo... DIRTY... Feeling worthless but WAIT- NOW I got the job, got the roof n food.... NOW WHAT?? PTSD... from what.. u dont wanna know... great now i "need"meds n regular doctor's apts... more money.. so which will i choose? Lose my mind completely or go back to streets again, soo.... I pray/wish for a way to help ... i pray/wish for us all to STOP JUDGING AND START CARING!!!2 weeks ago
