Eric is back! Now we can get stuff done. Eric is the social worker here at the San Francisco Nursing Center (SFNC). He was on vacation for the last couple weeks in Mexico. I think. I know he was going to leave the country, but I'm not sure where he went.
It is Monday morning and it's a little cold outside. I'm glad I'm not homeless anymore because it's been cold in San Francisco for the last couple days.
Those of you who read this blog know I'm tying to get my life together. I've been hospitalized for the last few months so I kinda have a head start because I haven't consumed any crack cocaine or crystal meth since I've been admitted to the hospital, then a nursing center.
Slowly Changing My LifeI've been re-evaluating my life for the entire year and I've come to the conclusion that I have to get off drugs entirely. I cannot smoke marijuana or any other drug if I truly want to change my life for the better.
I have been changing slowly. I no longer think of suicide and I'm not angry all the time. I'm also no longer afraid of my mother leaving home. She's not going anywhere. My dad abandoned us when we were still in diapers and my mom threatened to leave when we made her angry.
She didn't know she was hurting us when she said that. To her, we just became quiet like she wanted. She simply wanted a little peace around the house and that's something that's hard to come by with a house full of kids.
