Hey Readers. I know I kinda put you guys in a rough spot trying to fill in the gaps on what really happened in my life before Thursday. I know you guys have questions. Like, How did I get gonorrhea or why did I move to Michigan. You guys might be wondering if I’m making this up, but I really am not. I am telling the legit truth, though. So, here’s a list of questions you might have and the answers to them. Any other questions? Ask them in the comment box please. Thanks y’all!
Q: Why did you move to Michigan?
A: I moved to Mears, Michigan to live with my boyfriend, Dave Richardson. We met online and I felt like I was falling in love with him. So, I decided to move to Mears, Michigan to live with him.
Q: But wait a second, how did you get the money to get to Michigan since you were homeless? Did he come pick you up or how did you get there?
A: Oh yeah. I didn’t tell you guys about that. I took the bus. Well, It’s actually a complicated story. I had a rapist in Pennsylvania that paid me $75 to not call the cops on him. His name was Jonny and he was an 18-year-old indian man. He butt raped me and fingered me without consent. I did tell him I was gonna call the cops on him, but he paid me $75 to shut up and keep it silent. So, the bus ticket actually cost $150.
Q; So, how did pay for the remaining fee?
A; *Laughs* State College had a community help center and I asked them to help me move to Michigan. They needed confirmation at first from my boyfriend, but they got it and paid for the ticket. I was clearly on my way! And very excited.
Q; But was it very hard to let go of your friends and family in Pennsylvania?
A; Yes, it was. I knew I just needed to let go anyway and that I couldn’t hold on to my family forever, because they didn’t want me. It was a stressor I needed to let go. I know they will come around one day, but I need to let go. As for my friends, I really didn’t have a lot of them. The friends I did have, they still talk to me through Facebook or through other means of communication.
Q; Were you scared moving to another state
A; Yes, I was. I was terrified! I knew I was taking a major risk in my life and that I could end up homeless in Michigan, but I decided to give it a go and see where Michigan was gonna take me.
Q; Was your boyfriend, Richard Davidson, Satisfactory? Do you guys think you were in love in the beginning?
A; For a while, yes he was satisfactory. He was everything I wanted. I think I was in love with him, But I’m not so sure he was in love with me. I dreamed about a life forever with him and I dreamed of marrying him. I think he did at first, but then he became upset I wouldn’t suck his dick. So, yeah. He also got upset that I wasn’t looking for a job too.
Q; Why did you not look for a job? Why wouldn’t you suck his dick?
A; *Chuckling* Do you know how far the nearest retail store or was located!? It was like ten miles down the road. His dick was uncut, Maybe if his dick was cut, I would’ve sucked it more often. I did suck it a couple of times. I didn’t like it, obviously.
Q; Why didn’t you like it?
A; No comment.
Q: So, what happened? How did you two break up?
A; He told me he couldn’t take care of me because he was poor and then said he was gonna drop me off at the homeless shelter in Grand Rapids and that he would come back for me a month later. I was upset about it, but I trusted he would come back for me in a month.
Q; How did he tell you he wasn’t interested and that he actually was breaking up with you?
A; He told me the next day that he didn’t like me and that we were through on Skype. I was heartbroken! I did truly love him. I told him I was angry and then blocked him on Skype. I was simply heartbroken and hurt. I couldn’t handle it. I almost did kill myself that day.
Q; So, why didn’t you kill yourself that day? Were you scared? Did you have a plan that day?
A; I didn’t kill myself that day because I just manned up and handled it. I told myself he was just another man who used me and that there were many others waiting that would care for me. I was scared. I was terrified! I was in the middle of a big city I didn’t know and I was also starving that day. You bet I was terrified! No, I didn’t have a plan.
Q; What did you do? How did you find your way?
A; I went to the homeless shelter and talked to the people there. They gave me direction on where to go to get food, shelter, and any other necessities. I took their suggestions and discovered the town, got my ID, and was doing very well.
Q; So, how did you get out of the homeless shelter and into a house?
A; I met Mr. Corsair Switzerlord one night during chapel at the homeless shelter and we got to talking. Mr. Switzerlord offered for me to stay the night at his house. I took up his offer because I was tired of the homeless shelter and didn’t like it at all. I stayed overnight and then Mr. Switzerlord told me I could stay every night. I accepted his offer and have been staying ever since then.
Q; Why did you not like the homeless shelter
A; The men were smelly and the shelter was really crappy. Sometimes i couldn’t eat because of the smelly conditions. I just couldn’t live with it.
Q; What shelter was this?
A; Mel Trotters Ministries.
Q; What happened after you moved in with Mr. Switzerlord?
A; I did more exploring of the town of Grand Rapids. I had no clue that Grand Rapids was so huge! I live in Kent County. To this day, I still haven’t explored the whole town of Kent County! Hehe. I also started attending Fountain Street church on Sundays and met my friend, Karleem Johnson here.
Q; Who’s this friend of yours, Karleem Johnson?
A; Well, he’s actually my best friend. We met at church one sunday and connected real fast because he was bisexual and didn’t give a crap if I talked about guys. He’s 19 and an african american. He’s been real nice to me and has helped me as much as he can, but he is homeless himself. We’ve had our bad moments, but I think we’ll be friends forever.
Q; Did you move on and get another boyfriend?
A; *Laughs* Yes. I also resumed doing casual encounters. I was a whore and also got a sugar daddy to pay for me to get things. Then I met Mark Mickle. I kind of was a whore when I was with Mark too.
Q; Mark Mickle? What about him? Did you fall in love?
A; *Laughs* Yeah, He was a 45-year-old man who I met through Craigslist and he was supposed to be another casual encounter, but it turned out to be something more and I started falling in love with him. he fell in love with me and we were together for about 5 weeks.
Q; What happened that broke you two up?
A; I was a whore and slept with three men. He found out and got upset and then we broke up. It was totally my fault. Plus, he was way too thick for me and we always got into a fight when we had sex because he wanted to penetrate me, but I wouldn’t let him because he was way too thick and it hurt.
Q; What did you do after you guys broke up?
A; I actually just found out I had contracted gonorrhea and remained abstinent and still am remaining abstinent.
Q; Gonorrhea? Who do you think gave it to you?
A; Yeah, I contracted gonorrhea and the doctor told me it was curable.I went in for treatment for it 2 days ago and have to remain abstinent for 1 week and I will be cured. I really don’t know who I contracted it from, but I have my suspicions.
Q; So, are you doing better now and do you feel your future will be better? Do you think you will have a new boyfriend soon?
A; Yes, I am doing very well now. I did lose 15 pounds due to the flu I had 2 weeks ago. I had to go to the emergency room for it, but now I am healthy and happy. I have food stamps and am succeeding very well. I am looking for a job and hopefully will get one. My future and getting a new boyfriend? Well, I believe my future will be wonderful as long as I stay on the right track. As far as getting into another relationship goes, I think I am gonna take a break for a while and focus on myself now.
Q; Has your family talked to you ever since you moved to Michigan?
A; My dad texted me on my cellphone and he told me I still was not welcomed home. I called my mom’s cellphone, but she hung up once I said “Hey mom”. I don’t think my family is ever going to talk to me again, but who cares anyway. I’m not going to stress out about it anymore and I’m just going to let time do its thing.
Q; Have you ever thought about going back to Pennsylvania. Do you think you are going to stay in Grand Rapids?
A; *Laughs* Hells yes! There has been many times I thought about moving back, but I reminded myself I couldn’t because I didn’t have the money and that I needed to really focus on making my own life here in Grand Rapids. I’ll probably be staying in Grand Rapids for a long time or until I get back into school. Hopefully I can attend Job Corps soon in Flint, Michigan. Thankyou.
