I am 47 years old and I am originally from Burnaby. The first time I was homeless was this year and it was because I was leaving a toxic home. I used to own my old cleaning business. I liked cleaning, the hours were great. I am not to sure what I would like to do now. The things that have contributed the most to my difficulties are mental illness. To be more specific borderline personality disorder. I have also been dealing with choices that I have made in my life. What makes me feel happy is going to the gym, helping people and eating right. Also to know that my girlfriend is moving here to be with me. It also makes me happy to have a girlfriend that listens and helps me through problems I may have and she shows me the love I need. If I had unlimited resources and I was done with traveling I would buy a house or build a house.
