    In all my years living in the streets, I could say yes

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "In all my years living in the streets, I could say yes. Although they are not things that I am proud to have seen or remember. But hey, at least try to tell me in more detail what the was supposed to happen to you, I'm not a psychic to know what happened to you reading your mind. Although if I could do it, I know that I would regret it immediately, I know you and I imagine what kind of things you should have stored there."

    Thanks.

    What is the speaker saying "yes" to in the opening sentence?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hello emsr2d2: Once again, thanks for your help.

    -Has anything ever happened to you that you do not understand and you cannot even try to explain?

    -In all my years living in the streets, I could say yes. Although they are not things that I am proud to have seen or remember. But hey, at least try to tell me in more detail what the was supposed to happen to you, I'm not a psychic to know what happened to you reading your mind. Although if I could do it, I know that I would regret it immediately, I know you and I imagine what kind of things you should have stored there."


    Thanks.

    I suggest that you simplify both the question and the answer. Perhaps:

    Has anything ever happened to you that you didn't understand and couldn't explain?
