    Please look after my friend Deanna when she comes into the shelter for food. She is schizophrenic, and she really needs some guidance. When she has a psychotic break she doesnt really have a sense of reality. She thinks I am someone else, so she reacts like she doesnt know me. But when she is in her normal psychological state, she is a very lovely, intelligent, kind sweet ypung lady. I know a lot of people there don't think the best of me there, and i junderstand why. Marcus saw how one day Deanna was very interested in spending tme with me, and another day she would act like she didnt. I kmow i was kicked out for another reason, But I would never hurt Deanna, She is one that deserves the protection of the community. She is an angel, and when other people aren't trying to fill her head full of garbage, she will tell you that i have her back in any situation. She even let me get kinto her circle of trjust whenre i was able to hug her some of the time. She is difficult to gauge because she has those problems. I was getting a little angry and them was evicted for an unrelated situation. I was one of Deanna's closest friends and i knew all about her situation. Someone messed with her mind when she went into one of her psychotic breaks and told her i was no good for her. But in her case, i was watching out for her. In reality. I know John will likely never let me im again. But when Deanna asks not to be touched i dont. And when she wants a PDA we take it off property I deeply respect her and that is something for me. Shes not just attractive but so brilliant, Just tell her i took a nasty fall and hurt my nose and mouth and broke a couple of teeth. If she wants to e mail its there. Or you can tell ,me her response. miss and love all of you at the shelter. I really did some stupid things but it doesnt apply to this sweet one,
