My life at Tender Mercies Inc!

What is Tender Mercies Inc? It is a place for the mentally handicap. Homeless adults with a history of mental and social illness. It is located in Cincinnati,Ohio. It houses over 200 people in the downtown Cincinnati area. I have been there for over three years now. And it's been rough but a journey into myself ,and into my future!

Since I been here it hasn't been so pleasant. The food is served by a group of volunteers in a potluck-style setting. And often we have the same food on repeat bi-monthly.
The toilets and showers are old and need repair. In fact often they are filled with toilet paper and stains and all kinda of crap. The janitors here do a good job but they love to extort a person behind their backs. I have a bad habit of pooping on the seat of the toilets when I pee. I just fart and bam! I've tried to help it but it's an annoyance to others here now. So much so I get called names by staff and other residents who haven't matured in the mind enough.
The rooms here are small and abit cramped. You do get your own room tho. Many call it a home or house here,but for me it's like a shelter. Just a temporary housing facility until I can find my own place or get a mobile home. Something I always wanted.
Lastly,I get looked at like a fat freak,cause I do things MY way or the highway. It's how I was raised.
