Overcrowding

I really don’t think he wants any of us there, I especially don’t really think he wants me.  He only wants his family there. He only cares about him and himself and his family.  That’s actually an extra room in the house that he keeps locked. Nobody can use that room and all his special stuff is in there.

That’s the bed. Do you see where the red sheet is at? I sleep on that side, my sister sleeps on the other side. And before, when my son was younger, it was me, my son, and her all sleeping in that bed.

Tamika lives in one small bedroom with her two children. She rents the room from her mother by contributing cash and Food Stamps to the house.
