In early 2018 I became seriously ill, I was let go of my work due to this. I suddenly could not maintain my rent payments and was thereafter evicted. I was sick and homeless, and, if not for the kindness of friends who let me sofa surf in their homes, would be out on the streets. Last year I was put in touch with North Bridge Housing, they immediately accommodated me. With their support I have been able to focus on my failing health. I have now managed to receive lifesaving medical procedure and the future is looking brighter.
