Homeless Diaries | April 2024

"They don't explain it to me the way you do. In the hospital there is no explanation or discussion or anything. For us patients, they don't care about anything. Every time I go for a gauze change, depending on their mood, instead of closing my wound they open it. I'm afraid to go because I know I'll be in pain afterwards. And this pain cannot be tolerated any longer."
