My thoughts and experiences on living in Spain

What a "Life"
Friday, January 13, 2023 @ 8:26 PM

I have not posted for a while, but i feel like starting Blogging again.

Happy 2023 to you all.

I have lived and worked in Spain for 24 years and ran a business called Touchstone Spain for 11 years, Covid ruined my business as all clients came from overseas.

I also contracted covid in Feb 2020 and was seriously ill and then suffered the effects of long covid, depression loss of hearing in one ear and this resulted in many personal relationship problems. My ex [*] found it hard to cope with my illness and after many problems we split and i was forced to leave the house. Having no money, no work, no car I became Homless at the age of 54.

I was on the streets of Fuengirola and then Sabilnillas as it was safer.

I was rescued by a wonderful family who could see i was not an Alcoholic, junkie oimless guy. I kept my self clean and tidy but was forced to beg for food money. Guys it was a hard thing to have todo. But peoples kindness really amazed me.

Today i live in a semi ruin in Casares Pubelo due to the kindness of the lovely family, i am now trying to rebuild my life.

I will use this blog to hihlight the problems of Homless people and also give a message of hope to everyone, what is worrying is how fast things can change.

Take Care People and God Bless you All.

Hello David,
I must say, it's good to see you back, I used to be one of your readers and will continue to be one. The story you tell is awful, I can't imagine what you have been through and how difficult it must have been. Thank God for families like the one you came across. You are right things can change very quickly in a matter of days or even weeks but they can also get better in the same length of time. You must always be positive and continue believing that life can be better and will be better. Stay strong
