People It’s Real Bad Out Here, Try Not To Forget!

Everyone how are  you all?    Today  I’m here sitting at  the Federal Way Library using the Wi Fi.    It is my one & only entertainment.    You see, although I’m in my own apartment I have barely nothing in it aside from boxes.   I’m low income, don’t have cable (nor do I want it since what’s broadcast on it is garbage) nor do I have internet hook up thus I come for free Wi Fi here at the library.

I am grateful for the food I have, but I have nothing to cook it in lol! What can I tell you all?  I buy a lot of cheap stuff that either rusts, breaks, chips then I have to dump it.   I am grateful for what I have.    I hope you all who take the time to read what I type believe that.    I just struggle with a somewhat deficient brain.

Yesterday, I was at the library on my laptop surfing the Net for information on where to go for my hair.    So I check my email inbox for what seems like the umpteenth time, when I see an email from my friend that I met during my  three month stay at the women’s shelter.   I’ll call her Ashley.   Ashley is beautiful and in my opinion you’d never in a million years expect someone like her to be in a woman’s shelter.   That means she looks like she should be in a college sorority than a woman’s homeless shelter.      See everyone homeless women could look like ANYONE!   It’s not always the old lady with layers of dirty clothes on her back talking to herself on the street.

I read Ashley’s email & she is in dire straits.  What I mean is that once her time was up at the women’s shelter (you get six months)  she went to a place that is similar to one of those youth hostels.    Equipped with bunk beds, a transitional house, where the stay is temporary I heard at this one particular place Ashley went to it was 3 months.

But  a problem occurred for her according to her email that she would only say  was a potential conflict of interest.   I have no idea what that

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down.
