HUMANS OF THE MARKET
"I have a lot of anxiety. That is what I was born with, Williams syndrome. A thing with a hole in my heart. It gets scary. If someone tells me something, I get nervous of what they will tell me. I was at the CNE yesterday. I like it here (the market) better. I don't have to pay expensive mula *laughs*. I hate rides now, it gets worse. Anxiety hits me. How do we get away from anxiety when we don't know when it will happen. It's serious stuff. I don't want to be like this all the time. I wish I could be with someone that could understand what I'm going through.
Seeing you guys is my favourite. It helps me get away from the stress, this anxiety, and the other stuff. If I was at home, I'd be bored. I feel, you know, different today, but I still have that stress. You do the right things for people. You come out and help them. So there you go."
