"Growing up, my dad did drugs and I think that had an effect on me and mom," he told me. His elderly mother served in the U.S. Army and told me with a motherly smile, "He has a learning disability."
I met this man in Nashville under The Bridge (Jefferson Street). He has diabetes and has to give himself a shot daily. He uses a walker to make it from point A to point B. The good news, he lives with his mother in an apartment near the Titans Stadium. She too has a myriad of illnesses, but I could tell they support each other.
