I'm from here. I grew up in Richmond, BC. I felt like "how did I get to this point in my life" the first time I was homeless, I didn't know what I could do.
I was in Restorations mostly all my life. I like talking with people. I always have.
Today I'm in a wheelchair and I do the best that I can. I was married for 12 years when my wife died in her sleep. I found her in our room and my heart stopped beating. I was in shock, she was my soulmate. I was so depressed that I didn't want to face the heart ache. I turned to drugs, Drugs had a part in what then happened to me to cause my disability - what I'm saying is I was up for days and then I would pass out. I guess I was hunched over putting pressure on my leg. My leg swelled up to 10 times it's size, to the point of me having a blood clot in my leg, while I was sleeping. Then when I woke up I was in the hospital. I was in critical condition. My kidneys shut down. I lost all my nerves in my leg. I had no feeling from my hip down to my feet. Today I'm in a wheelchair, trying to live day to day.
Talking to my parents everyday makes me happy.
If I could have anything I would buy a laptop computer so I could see my parents everyday.
Could you pray for my leg, for my nerves to come back fully?
