Re: Funny

said by fiberguy:

There are a LOT of homeless people that are not ill or sick, rather, they are either down on their luck, too lazy to work and want handouts, or drug users (to which I could care less about them anyway..)

And the reality is that people with mental health issues (usually undiagnosed) are self-medicating with street drugs and/or alcohol because their mental health issues are undiagnosed... many are not capable of holding a job nor should they be expected to... especially with undiagnosed mental health issues. "Down on their luck" or "too lazy" are simply badly informed judgments of a much larger problem.
