I am 57 years old and I am BC born and bred. I have no comment about the first time I slept outside except that I survived. The work I have done includes drywall, masonry, and log home. I did everything to the building. I always worked to the best of my ability. The things that have contributed the most to my difficulties have been medical issues and alcohol. If I had unlimited resources I would spend the rest of my life with my son. Or I would move to New Zealand and never be seen again. I would like other to pray about me to have a life.
