I just need funds to catch up on my bills more importantly than anything elese. I need breathing room to get something started and the funds to start it.
You can read about my situation at the link at the bottom. It will tell you more about my situation since I’m asking you to help me out, help out my family.
I don’t know if this will work but I’m desperate. I know there are families and even people out there who are worse off than me and I feel weird asking for help when there are others who have cancer, burn victims or lost a leg or arm or have kids that are sick, homeless or whatever. I just know that I need help and can’t get back to where I’m self-sufficient on my own. Once I get myself to where I’m on my feet again I can only promise you that I will help out whoever needs it once I have the ability to do it.
I worked all my life since I was 12 years old and pretty much supported myself until I was 27 when I suffered a spine injury. I was confined to a bed for almost a year then went to using a wheelchair, worked my way up to using a walker and was stuck there for too many years.
The doctors at Abington Hospital and Temple University said I would never walk again and should be in a bed and should be happy I’m able to ‘ambulate’ using a walker; this was at 28 year old. I have ‘nerve damage/involvement’ in both legs which causes dead spots on both legs, loss of sensation in the parts I can feel or pain depending on how my activities aggravate my condition and motor control issues in both legs, a large amount of pain at the injury location on my spine. I have problems sitting or standing without moving around for any amount of time. I also have a Repetitive Motion injury (RM) in my right shoulder that’s not helping me. I'm also a type-2 Diabetic now and need to take pills to control my Diabetes which I can't afford and to monitor my blood and regular doctors visits to help control it from getting worse which I also can't afford.
I kept telling myself and everyone else, this is only temporary, I’m going to be able to go back to the way I was. Well it turns out this is not so temporary.
I put myself through College and obtained an Assocviate degree and I'm tryong to create an up-to-date portfolio and continue to sharpen my 3D modeling skills I went to school to learn and put together a 3D Modeling and Animation Portfolio but money is worse than tight. It’s difficult to get a foothold on making progress toward getting a career and try to make a living when you are worried about surviving just until the end of the month.
I’ve tried to ask for help from the churches around here but because of the economy money is tight everywhere. Until I got injured I was independent.
We are one more major disaster away from being homeless. Christmas will be almost non-existand this year for my sister, her 2 daughters, her grandson and myself as we are just trying to make it through the month right now.
I'm not asking for a hand out, just a hand up. I need help, we need help. I just don't know where to go or whart to do anymore.
