For friends and kind strangers who cared enough to hear me.
Not everyone does when you cry out, or remain silent. So thank you. Not sure if coming on here is safe but I need to try.
Me...a 54 yr old woman who has worked hard behind the chair doing hair since I was 18. Making people feel special about how they look and feel, has been my passion. A smile and a hug meant everything to me when you leave my chair happy.
I’ve developed lung disease. Acute asthma since 3 yrs old and 5 yrs ago COPD and Enphasima.
I am also a type 2 diabetic. I now use machines to breath and working became impossible. I had to stop working and became disabled 3 yrs ago. I so miss my clients !! They were the highlight of my day. Made me feel special and I needed that to survive.
On top of my medical issues ,I am married and have been the victim of abuse for many years. I’m so tired. And I need to try to get my life back ,and hopefully if I’m lucky enough to have peace in my life, my doctors say without the stress, my health would improve, no cure, but improve.
I have been in domestic violence shelter, which is a god send. I need to move forward and away from this life ,to a life of peace ,God willing. That’s where I need the help of kind people like yourselves.
On disability wages, I do not have the resources to move into an apartment with first month and security,and connect utilities with all the start up costs. And maybe even a cheap used car to get away. The shelters help you with start up costs if you have a police report on file within 30 days, which I do not have, unfortunately. I’ve tried many different avenues, and this page is my only other hope. I also have animals ( my babies ) that depend on me to find them a home too.
I’m scared, and I’ve had enough. I know most everyone struggles in life, if only a dollar is your gift..its a dollar towards hope. Thank you for caring enough.
