Carmelo Wishes to Remain Useful (La Cronica, 1/9/13 by Gerardo Fragoso)

MEXICALI, BC - "I have more than 15 years here, almost 16. Here I've had setbacks and I got up", he exclaims. José Carmelo González Bastida, who, at 53, faces a challenge every day but refuses to surrender to the easy way out, with a subsidy and gifts, struggling to remain useful to society.

Diabetes ties him to a wheelchair and near it death seemed to sear him with all its strength: "This happened from the disease which I have. Left me with an ulcer on one foot and one on the floor. Hence I developed gangrene and I lost it. That’s why they amputated my foot, in order to survive".

His days are tangibly harrowing: "My depression was very big; I couldn't believe it, I was like deer. I was going from here to there. But I am happy because God has given me another opportunity to move forward."

Currently, Gonzalez makes a living by removing and replacing plates in the parking lot at the revenue collection auxiliary, a place where, equipped with a small kit of screwdrivers, he seeks give a labor a sense of his worth, struggling to stay a productive citizen. "I’m here not getting any support from anyone, only from citizens, of users, at the time they want it, because I work", he expressed without fear, explicitly.

"There are very good and very bad people everywhere. But most here already know me and give me support. I’m recognized as a good warrior," he says proudly.

Gonzalez faces new challenges every day and continues to struggle with a condition that does not conform to everything that has hurt him: "I already do not see good with diabetes. I have cataracts and had a few spills from the disease. I want to get checked by an eye doctor, so I am diagnosed and get help, because I want to still be useful for society. I want to recover some of my sight, because I do not want to be useless", concludes this man while preparing to relocate another registration. http://www.lacronica.com/EdicionEnLinea/Notas/Noticias/09012013/658189.aspx
