I’ve asked for help before but nothing like this.
Please don’t judge.
I’m currently unemployed and have been searching for a job for the last two years. I ended up getting a obstruction of justice charge on my record, which is a lot of the reason on why no where will hire me. I’m currently waiting for a approval or denial letter from social security to know if I am approved or if I have to fill out another appel. In the meantime my boyfriend and I have been living with my mother. Two years ago we brought our daughter into the world and have been doing everything we can to care for her. She has a roof over her head, she has clothes, food, water, anything she needs, she has. Taking care of her hasn’t been an issue at all, but her health has because one. A year ago we had a lead test done showing her levels were 10.3 (high for a child). We’ve continuously cleaned and done everything the health care providers and linn county public health has suggested. For the last year we’ve contacted as many resources as we can to either help us fix our home, buy it for a price that we can actually move and try to be okay on, or help us relocate. Everyone and everything lead me to nothing. Now here I am stressing to the point my thoughts have become overwhelming. My daughter had another lead test to prove everything we’ve been doing has done nothing because her levels are now sitting in the 12 range. I’m reaching out for help. I have a hard time doing it but it is important to get my daughter out of this home. Well you would suggest going to stay with family or friends, that’s not really an option, anyone thats family that would let us stay with them doesn’t have the space. I’ve been trying to get general assistance here in Linn county but that has been another dead end so far because next to no one is willing to wait until social security gets approved. I’ve found a place where I can move but need help with money to get into the place. I do have the goal for the full amount for the house even tho I highly doubt I’ll get any help at all but I have to try. I’m losing my mind trying everything I possibly can and this seems to be my last hope. Please don’t judge, if you can’t help I understand everyone has their own problems and their own lives that they need to focus on but if you can thank you I will forever be grateful.
