My name is Jeffrey. I have a brain injury. I am an alcoholic. I fell off a boat. I don’t remember anything of it other than I woke up bald in a hospital. I was in a coma for a couple of weeks. When I first got up from my coma, I fell flat on my face. A couple of days after that I started walking. 2 weeks after I woke from my coma, I left the hospital. I lived on the streets for 3-4 years after that. It was in Iowa City that I was stabbed and someone found me and I went back to the hospital. It was there where social workers hooked me up with EPI and Northstar, here in Waterloo to get me into these programs so I’d be safe. I struggle with depression. If It weren’t for being here in these programs, I’d still be on the streets and this is better than being on the streets.
