Hello everyone. My name is Danielle Berna and I have never reached out for help in my life. I have nowhere to turn. I have asked friends and family for help, I have started a go fund me about three weeks ago that I’ve had over 450 views and yet nobody has helped me. I am asking with a heavy heart for any help anyone can give me. My 17 year relationship ended in a devastating divorced this last February. I have been left with the house and our bills for a long time now even before the divorce we have been separated for a couple years and I’ve been struggling ever since. I had a wonderful job but due to my mental illness I was terminated. I lost my husband and took a six dollar pay cut from my job two years ago and I have been trying as hard as I can every single day to keep my head up above water and no matter how hard I try I sink more more every day. I thought I finally found happiness again this past September and was happily engaged only for it to abruptly end for reasons I am unsure about to this day. He disappeared and I have not heard from him since. I am now left with more bills than I had prior. I also lost my mother unexpectedly in May. Not knowing how or why she left us is something a child should never live with. I have acquired a second job to try and help my situation. I received foreclosure notices repo notices and disconnect notices for all of my utilities for months. I am three months behind on my mortgage and my car. I am also on medication for the rest of my life that I simply cannot afford due to losing my insurance. I have to choose every month what I have to live without in order to get my medication. Also I have a 15-year-old German Shepherd her name is Deja she has arthritis so bad she falls over and can barely walk. She is also on medication for the rest of her life that I cannot afford either. I have to sit and listen to her cry and suffer and there is nothing I can do about it. The vet won’t help me because she needs bloodwork before they can fill her prescription again. Things have been this way longer than I care to admit. I have tried so hard to fix my problems on my own I have downsized sacrificed and tried anything and everything to make ends meet. I tried so hard for Years trying to get assistance through my mortgage company Medicaid food stamps the Salvation Army to help with my utilities anything you can think of I have tried and I have been denied every single time I ask for help. I have tried to sell everything and surrender my car to the bank only to be told I will be responsible for the difference and or Sued. I am alone and I have nowhere to go. I am originally from Michigan and moved to Tennessee about nine years ago. All of my family is in Michigan and I have nowhere to go. If I sell my house I will be homeless. The divorce has completely annihilated my credit. I am asking desperately for help to keep a roof over my head and to push through this unbearable time of my life. I have all of my notices to prove my situation if anyone can lend a helping hand I will be forever indebted to you. All I am trying to accomplish is to catch my bills up so I am not in jeopardy of losing my home or my car Until I can get back on my feet again. Thank you for listening to my story.
