“I grabbed two waters. The lady in front of me turned around, hands on hips, and told me I was enabling that ‘homeless person’ (with a sneer) and I shouldn’t be wasting my money on him.

You told me to kill myself. But YOU WON’T WIN.’”

I stood in the middle of Magic Kingdom crying, alone and terrified.”

“They took him back immediately. As they were helping him get changed into his hospital gown, they saw this terribly swollen black spot on his back that was not there before.
