Labeling homeless people doesn’t help. Addressing economic issues that swell the ranks of the homeless as well as the mental illness, addiction, disability, and other issues the homeless battle will. | The Olympian

My last 5 years of marriage where ” homes less”

The next 5 years were vegged out in a 4 level grey

condo, no earth, no sky, just knocked out . Grief

& guilt , no joy , shadow had me in total

2 years of home ownership . Fear , Anger , My

primal came out , but hope and light 💡 began

to take root.. Prayers & Plans 2006 .Sold at a loss

lived in a hotel , my things in a truck , to be met

with a nightmare living space wise.

Blessings increased ❤️💯

Moved into a friend’s house, left due to non replacing

of fridge , which he did replace for the next tenant .

Which catalyzed my move towards my dream.

2 years in my 1st home in the mountains, and

a LL who ignored , full septic tanks, power line

responsibility etc , and after replacing a rusted heat

pump , he wanted to raise the rent.

I moved to a house with garden space , and

more privacy.. I failed to realize the extent of the

work, and cost required to create a livable

home , spending 8 k on labor and materials,

gardening etc..

I left over Abuse by he and his reps , when he

planned to add a heat pump , raise the rent

and refused to replace a bathtub that was exposed

to toxic metals .

The next house had a do drop in landlord who

suggested I write my own lease, that I sign a 30

year lease . 2 years in m the 60’s stove was shot

and replacing it, as well as capping the fireplace

that has leaked during a flood , on the outside

as well as inside . Flashing was also placed .

The next months I found a 30 day evict notice.

I stayed Feb thru May, in relocating efforts

and a major health issue that resulted( as I

had been told I would not have rent increased

and the house would not be sold )

The farm house I went too, had been for sale for

8 years , had black mold , dampness was horrific

and a new agent repeatedly abused my privacy

and safety but sold the white elephant , and

a friend rescued me.. A farm house that I could

do what I wanted with , was fraught with toxic

issues, and an addiction in LL that tested me

with 90 plus days of no hot water ..

LL was heard , attesting to the more revenue

and more connections , the more heard you are

in court ..

Again my things packed in a U Haul , homeless

for 2 weeks , and all that negative rendering .

Currently in an apartment , just learning

of arsenic in bricks, mold in ceiling tiles

with a LL who wants me to move so a redo

can transform this over 100 year old elephant

that has been neglected and abused over long.

It’s been brought up in court , my excessive

moving , like I choose this experience.

It is but another cause I hope to embrace ,

given the adversities of holding a home has

reached so many, and will only grow , it’s

past time to educate and enforce landlord

tenant law , to the benefit of all involved .

Homelessness happens when personal misfortune and economic and political forces collide. The challenge in Thurston County and Olympia is to address both the individual issues — addiction, mental illness, disabilities, and other challenges — and the larger structural problems.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
