About me.

I am 51 years old and have lived in Livermore, CA all my life. I was diagnosed with MS in my early 20's. In my 30's I was told that I suffer from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

My backstory.

I take medication for mental health issues and an MS condition. For a long time, I couldn't remember what happened from one day to another. I had caregivers take advantage of my finances and there was little I could do to stop them. This led me to become homeless. Thankfully, I was referred to Abode Services and got into permanent supportive housing where I have lived since 2008. After several years of not being in touch with my family, I finally reached out to my sister and I now have a safe and caring caregiver.

My goals, moving forward.

My sister has been in charge of my medical appointments and needs. I am now registered at Valley Wellness Center where I am have become more active in my social life. I'm enrolled in several classes, including mindfulness meditation, healthy eating, exploring sound and group games.

Other things I'd like to share about myself.

I like having a social life, making friends, and having everyday conversations.
