I am a 36-year-old woman who has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I also have severe arthritis, asthma, seizures, hypothyroidism, my vision is failing and I am almost totally deaf. I have had both hips replaced, but I am steadily getting worse. I can barely walk, and as my diseases progress, I will lose what little ability I have left. I cannot hold myself upright, or do anything physical. I am chronically fatigued, and I have worsening cognitive issues, as well as uncontrollable tremors in my hands and arms.
I also suffer from Major Depressive Disorder, as well as severe anxiety.
I am unable to work, and am going through the process of applying for SSI, but in the meantime I have no income and thus no way to keep a roof over my and my dog's heads. I will be beginning aggressive treatment soon for Multiple Sclerosis, and I am petrified that I will end up homeless while I'm going through this. I have requested help from numerous agencies, but they want proof of income to pay for a month's rent. I already owe $550 (two months' rent).
Anything you donate will go to keeping the roof over our heads, making sure my dog has her food and medicine, and reducing my anxiety while I go through a very difficult process.
Thank you for your consideration.
