Here's another story from our #Dignity event.
This one was written by Gateway Member Yvonne, and is entitled 'Cousin'.
Shortly after I got sick I went to a family wedding. After the meal I went to the bathroom. One of my cousins followed me outside.
He asked me “if I was alright”, he knew something was wrong. I started to cry but, he put his arm around me and led me around the corner of the lobby to sit down.
I told him what had happened to me and how I feeling, we had a long chat, he made me feel good about myself. He told me “not to be afraid to ask for help because we all need help sometimes”.
