Posted February 01, 2019 03:36:30 I am the kind of person who will spend hours looking for anything to do, and even if I am unable to find a job I will do it.
“I will go into the bedroom, take a nap, and watch TV,” says Iona, a 27-year-old who has lived in a house with a “sitting room” since she was seven years old.
But when the temperature drops to below -15 degrees Celsius, Iona is forced to leave.
She spends her days at home or on her back and sleeps on a “stew” of rice and water, and when the weather turns cooler, she’ll “take a few more nap”.
“I do not like cold,” says the young woman.
“It is a big responsibility, I can’t go anywhere without being careful,” she says.
“When I am away, I have to cook my own food, I cannot go to the library, and I do not want to do anything else.”
Iona says her life is now in “stasis”.
“I am living in a very small house with no one to share it with.
I have no one who cares for me.
I’m very depressed,” she admits.
She says the best way to survive is to “sleep on a stool”.
I don’t know if I will survive this winter, she says, but I know that I will be able to “live” in the winter.
I think that succubuses live in “survival mode” when the winter begins.
After a cold winter, they will be happy to go into hibernation, she explains.
For the rest of the year, I am sure I will stay alive, says Ioan, a 28-year old who has been living in the house for two years.
When the weather gets cold, I will not be able do anything, she insists.
“It is very cold in our house, but we have nothing to do,” she explains, pointing to the stools on the floor.
There are no running water, but they have an electric heater, so when the house is hot, they do not have to sleep in a warm bed.
They also have an air conditioner.
“If the house gets too cold, we will not have a hot water supply,” she jokes.
In the winter, the house has no heating.
One night, when Iona was at her computer and watching TV, she heard a loud noise coming from upstairs.
She went out to find out what was going on, and found that someone was banging on the window.
As soon as she heard the banging, she decided to go to bed.
Iona says that the next morning she woke up to find the window “open”.
She slept for eight hours and woke up a couple of hours later to find someone in the kitchen, banging on her door.
Once the door was opened, she was frightened, so she opened the door again, thinking she would hear her own banging.
But she did not hear anything.
Finally, she realised that someone had come into her house and was banging her door, so in her fear, she went to the bathroom.
However, when she opened up the door, she discovered that the person was still there.
The next morning, she woke to find herself lying on the sofa with a huge knife and a large knife she had borrowed from a friend.
A friend told her that she had killed someone in her house.
It was the third time in the last four years that she has been murdered, she explained.
While Ioan sleeps, Ilan sleeps in the bathroom, and it was just two weeks ago that she woke from a coma.
Her mother says she would like to stay with her, but “theres not a place for me in the world”.
The most important thing in life is to be alive, Ioan says.
But I know what I am not doing, she added.
