Day 13 shattered but quite happy

Saturday, July 09, 2011

Had good 2 days walked over 11 mile. Went with JJ to probation office wastre of time hi PO wasn't even there yet he had appointment.The took him to see a Dr he is so bloated and depressed She is writing to council housing dept for me.So he's still on the street.till after the weekend at least.hopefully they will find him a temp shelter for 28 to give us time to follow housing leads.I am away again this nexy week and the kids visit over the summer but even a tent in my garden is better than nothing if need be.
He is having a liver and kidney function test done on mon then we will see how bad it really is. JJ does not dring all this is caused by previous drinking years ago malnutrision and not being able to sleep safely. The DR Iam mad with as JJs meds are trancs and seditives when he lives in fear on the street they just don't think.
Ian is feeling better though still stressed his boss says his job will be still there when he gets himself sorted.So there is no pressure there we still think this is glandular fever. I feel a lot better cause i am keeping busy with other peoples problems I don't have time to dwell on my own.
I did gain 4lb in fluid last week but as it ha cooled down that is slowly moving.I have never had to make so many pee stops on a 70 mile journey even to the extent of watering the grass behind walls if no loo available.
Just had boiled cauliflower for lunch and some pineapple as having liver and bacon casserole later with cauliflower my fav food at the mo fresh from the field.Have a good weekend all

    JJ may not be the only one who needs some body functions tested... the frequent pee stops may be more than the weather--it's also sign of uncontrolled diabetes or kidney issues!--- which can be accelerated because your dealing with other people's stress is masking your own--and adding to it at the same time.

Don't forget that YOU are important too, and that if you don't take care of YOU, there won't be a you to take care of JJ!

Worried abouy you, kiddo... emoticon

Day 11 off to Carlisle and my homeless friends.

Thursday, July 07, 2011

Rained all night very windy had about 7ins rain.Booked in at usual place for tonight spending 2 full days with my street guys.Found some clothes for them while i was away.
I really value the time i spend with the guys it puts my life into perspective and makes me realise how privilaged i am.a roof over my head,knowing i have cash to buy food.a bed to sleep in.clean clothes.a varied menu.knowing i am safe.
My friends cannot understand why i do this according to them i am mixing with dregs but each of these guys have a story they didn't choose to be where they are circumstance brought them to this point and it is difficult to get that step up again once on first rung they can start to live a near normal life.
The main fear of these guys is not hunger or cold nor not having the means to feed them selves it is of being attacked or even murdered as they lie in a doorway or under bushes.
They suffer the humiliation of being stepped on by society The i'm alright jack to hell with you brigade.the ones who pass judgement when walking by.They never think {but for the grace of God that could be me or one of mine}
How much does it cost to ask a street person if he is ok or give him a hello and a smile when you pass.Show them they are not invisable.they have feelings just like us.
Not all homeless people are on drugs or alchol dependant they have just fallen through the net and need compassion which is lacking in todays society.
Sorry to preach but someone has to .
Later today i will be sitting in the rain with these guys because I care emoticon

    You are doing what Jesus wants all of us to do! We may not be were there are homeless but many are hurting and we can help them. Thank you for this post and for what you are doing. May the Lord open all our eyes to what He wants each of us to do. May God bless and direct you. Love and prayers Jenny

Matthew 26 35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. K.J.V. in public domain

    Good for you. Thank you for making us all think about the homeless, who, as you say, may have found themselves on hard times for many reasons. Hope you have a good day.
