One of the most adventurous things is, my cousin, who had Myasthenia gravis and bedbugs in her house. She passed away. So after she passed away, I call one of my mother’s friends and tell them my cousin passed away.
She said, forget that she’s your cousin and you got to move out of the house. So I pack up most of my things and had them out in front of the house, and I call my brother and ask my brother, can I come and live with him. He said he had to think about it. And he called me back and said yes.
So I pack my stuff up, move out to Long Island. Amityville, Long Island. He came and got me. My family saw me off. Then as I lived with my brother, he didn’t want me to touch this, he didn’t want me to touch that. He didn’t want me to touch this. I said, “Well, you know where I come from, I don’t have anything. Why are you fussing about what I’m touching?” He said, “Well, these are my things and you’re touching my stuff.” I said, “Well, what am I going to do?”
So he was a dialysis patient. He had mood swings. I said, “It’s time for me to move on.” So when I heard, I called assisted living, they said they’ll take me on as a resident. I repack my stuff, went to assisted living, but I couldn’t eat their food.
So I went in the hospital because I was bleeding in my stool. And I had to go to the hospital. And when I said, “I can’t go back to the assisted living because their food is not good for me.” I had to move on. And I came here. And I came here, I saw a lot of older people. I’m looking for young people to associate with. I ain’t have too many when I came. But then I said, “I had to find another purpose for being here.” And that’s it.
