Get Jerald Out Of Hospital

$1,715 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 14 people in 25 days
On Sept 12, 2016 I woke up without movement on right side. I was in hospital and remain so ever since, diagnosed with a severe stroke. I was told I may never get out of bed. Three months of hard work later I am ready to be released to my own home. I use a walker and a cane, and am basically one handed. So. Any assistance to help me fund housing would be greatly appreciated.

I can't seem to log in to facebook anymore and for awhile gofundme was blocked too. I don't know why.
So, my lovely and valued friends who have done so much for me, if you can see this, I am at jeraldblackstock on Instagram and @blackstockart on Twitter, and of course jeraldblackstock.ca for my art.
If you can see this, pls find me.
love
Jerald

I will create a home and a business after 6 months sailing on recovery road.

Zero assistance from social workers generating paper

like a combine spewing chaf.

To no avail.

If it is to be it is up to me. (Ellis)

I have rode the waves and braved the storms of unknown lonliness.

Clouds obscuring

No guiding star.

Surrounded by the dementia of the institutionalized, the patients are even worse.

Goodbye you godless Liberal scum

they sing out like Hallelujah

They hate you for your compassion

that gave them this pain free medical plan

So I sit in isolation

My only comfort of companion

You

Godess Bless the internet and all of us who sail on her.

Calgary Housing reports I am high priority for a subsidized home. Only 4000 single men in shelters ahead of me.
I am using my overdraft and credit cards and your kind assistance to set up and fund a Home instead. Thank you.

The Daily Dis

The hospital is the loneliest place in the world.
I'm in my 6th month. 4 to a room of acute care men, snoring and farting
Non-nurturing nursing in the night flashing
lights in the eyes every 2 hours,
Mosquito men in white coats balancing the humours
letting of blood ritual daily at 6am
Spending the day half asleep, wraith-like, lost of purpose
Public no fixed address system seeks aid for 248a bowel routine
How are your bowels dear
Sordid questions and squalid needs
Anti-social workers manipulate with Fear Obligation and Guilt in the FOG
You can't stay
your life continues at the homeless shelter
after all we have done for you
No salt, no flavour, no texture
Too much paper work if you wallow in your swallow.
Walking the talking over
interrupting because you slur
What could you possibly have to slur
that's important to me
The daily dis
The television in every room constantly consumes quiet
No Peace for You No Place to Process
Go home if you want to get better
No home no family?
Loser
you don't fit our Christian family
In this shrine to the scientific method
Our system of ill-health and wellness
Why did I have a stroke?
We don't know, don't have another one.
