I am 42 years old and I am originally from Mission. The first time I slept outside wasn't so bad I had help the first time. The circumstances like today are the lack of housing and the cost. I was 27. All the work I have done in the past were hard physical work. I did commercial fishing, was a RN and a care aid. The things that have contributed the most to my difficulties is my diabetes. It is type 1 and I use an insulin pump. Overall my health has been the hardest part of my life. What makes me happy is my cat. If I had unlimited resources I would see the world and fish it. I would like others to pray for my health to get better.
