An old man I didn’t know left a message on my answering machine saying he needed an ambulance. He gave his first name and half an address, no last name, no return number. It was during the night and I didn’t find it until about 7am. read more →

Last Wednesday on my way to work while it was 19° and icy out, I saw a person under a blanket in the bus shelter. From the position of their head and hands, I was scared they may be frozen to death (though he was wearing purple gloves but his hands were becoming frostbitten). read more →

coverWhen I was homeless, it was a very scary hard life.

I never asked for anything, but loads of people gave me things. They gave me money, trainers, bedding and hot food with sweet drinks and water, and kindness. I did get the horrible ones who spat, swore and were damned right aggressive.

I fell ill and was taken to hospital but I felt I was a burden so discharged myself after a few days. The police arrested me for harassment and I was taken to court and imprisoned for three weeks whilst reports were done. read more →

It’s really weird, but good things keep happening to me.

I found a ladies purse in the carpark outside the library. It had over $400 inside. Using her ID, I tried finding her in the whitepages – No luck. I rang the police station, but the calls went to voice mail! So I went inside the library and the librarian said a lady had just rung asking if her purse was there and was on the way back to try and find it. I walked outside and there she was in the car park searching. I gave her purse back to her and she was so grateful and relieved to get it back. – Stacey 🙂
