Focus:HealthAction Request:Visit - onlineLocation:United States

I made a wish because I am homeless and in this post I was trying to tell them why I am having such a hard time with these messages.....

and then.................

http://www.greedyorneedy.com/forum/topic/25167/page/4?replies=95#post-401499

here is my wish:

Help for ME: A Place to Live: A Dollar at A Time?

Feel Free to post this anywhere you see fit!

I am devastated! 

The stigma against mental illness is already unbearable!  I did not expect it at a wish site!

Vic,

I never saw anything that nasty as comments than on GON...  I can't believe it!  I posted a comment earlier asking where the nasty comment about your mental health was on the page, not because I don't believe you, but because Sublime denied anyone had done it.  I thought if I could find it, I would re-post it for her to see!!!

Frankly, you and Lauren are the only reasons why I am staying on GON.  If you leave, once Lauren is done there, I'm gone!  Care2 is not perfect, we know this, but I have never seen any mean comments here from a member to another like what they do on GON.

You know what?  If you leave GON and have a PayPal account, hell, if we can't send you $1. we are not better than them!  I think most of us activists don't have any money.  We are disabled or retired, which is nice because we can work for peace, but we know how it feels.  I also have been homeless with my son while I was living in Mexico as an illegal. The ones on care2 who are not homeless right now, I don't think anyone would have any objection to share with you whatever we can.

If you want, I will post the suggestion on your group here.  I so sympatized with you!  These guys at GON are plainly cruel and we don't belong there.  But, before I leave, I will also give them a piece of my mind!

Hang in there sweetie...  You will get what you need.  And remember, even the worse things have an end!  That's what I keep telling myself when everything goes wrong.

Wishing you a wonderful New Year,

In solidarity,

Crystal
