THE STORY:

Hi guys my name is Lorry Clark, in 1999 I was in an 80mph roll over that changed my life for ever. I had a job traveling the US selling magazine subscriptions door to door the first night with the group the driver of our van fell asleep at the wheel. When I woke up there was broken glass and dirt in my face, I was pinned under a dead body, my head was ringing. People where screaming and yelling, the paramedics were using the jaws of life to cut me out of the twisted wreckage. The accident happened in Winslow Arizona, I was helicopter lifted to John C. Lincoln hospital in Phoenix.i had suffered a traumatic brain injury, chipped my ankle and various bumps and bruises. I sued the company and receive $100,000 after doctors and lawyers took their fees I was left with $38,972.17 for a life time of pain. When I got my settlement I had a bunch of new friends, everybody loved my and I was so great. I loaned $20,000 out and was paid back $300 on a $700 loan and that was it. As soon as the money was gone so were all my new friends.Over the years life became harder and harder. I started having nightmares about my accident over and over, angry issues, couldn't hold jobs long. Since the accident I've had 48 jobs and lived in 9 different states. Between nightmares when i sleep and anger when I'm awake my life became a struggle just to live. My 48th job started my decent. I was working at a Burger King in totem lake Washington, I was getting 39 hours a week. Obama care cam thru my hours where cut to 25, tried to find a second job with no luck then boom. Lost my place then my job. I became homeless, being homeless sucks. The one nice thing is I finally got health care... I told the doctor what was going on and He told me that I had post traumatic stress disorder and survivors guilt. I have been homeless now for 3 years I applied for disability and have been turned down twice with a lawyer. At my mental health level and my work history I have become unemployable. I'm trying to raise the money to start a business. If I had my own business I could have bad days mental health wise and still have my business if I fo it at a job I'm fired... The business is simple enough buying storage units at auction and reselling the contents. Thank you for reading and may your lives be blessed
