Stressed To Sleep

Easily the most stressful time for the homeless is when they go to their ‘spot’ to spread out their bedding and go to sleep – usually on or near a sidewalk.  It is surely the most vulnerable a person can be, to sleep outside in a very public place, where strangers walk by all night long.   Yes, the more vulnerable I am the more stressed out I get.  That should be common sense, right?  And it’s near midnight now, and time for me to go to my spot, hope that no one else has taken it, and set up my tent for the night.   And hoping that poeple will leave me alone and that I’ll get some sleep.
