Why I’m using StreetChange for fishing equipment
Fishing is the only activity than makes me feel truly relaxed, it works better than any medication. Accessing fishing equipment would allow me to spend my time meaningfully and help me find my peace of mind.
I had a hard life. I have been homeless for number of years. I suffer from social anxiety and I’m not able to work. Now I’m in my fifties. Pretty much the only two things I love are dogs and fishing.
I currently stay in a temporary accommodation and I’m on low income so I cannot afford anything more but bare essentials. I don’t particularly enjoy engaging with other people and most of the time I try to keep to myself, but I also feel isolated at times as there is not much for me to do.
My goals moving forward
I hope to be able to move into an independent tenancy soon. My main goal for the future is to improve my mental health by developing ways to better deal with my anxieties and to be able to reduce my stress level.
