Please help my dog, Hunter and I to move to California from Chicago. I'm at the end of my rope. I feel like the earth is crumbling right from under my feet. I'm frightened, and I don't have anyone left to turn to. I am mentally disabled, I have major depressive disorder, severe anxiety, bipolar, ocd, adhd, and memory loss. On top of all that i've had 5 unsuccessful cervical spine surgeries that left me with little motion in my neck. I am in extreme, chronic pain. I live in Chicago, and I need to near two of my children, who live in Los Angeles. I'm only 61, and I don't want to be a burden on them. I'm not ready to live in an adsisted living facility. I just want to live no more than 25 miles away away from my children. I can't take care of myself any longer. With my memory loss I'm not thinking clearly, and I can be talking to someone, and mid sentence,I stop and don't even remember what I was talking about. I've been the victim of being not once, but twice scammed on the interner for a total of $1, 600. Losing that much money destroyed me financially, and left me with a chain of unpaid bills. As far as the seriousness of my memory loss, I spent over an hour one day searching for my cell phone. I found it one hour later in my refrigerator, on the second shelf, behind food in front of the phone. I have written to every Senator, Governor, Mayors of 20 cities in California, Churches, Synagogues, Philanthropists from Chicago to California. I sent out 200 emails, and receivedsome money towards my move. I also applied to over 200 banks, savings and loans, and private lenders. I was shocked that some of them were charging from 200% to 2, 000% interest rates. I never realized that everytime you apply for a loan, your credit credit score drops. Mine is as low like the Titanic. The reason I need the $5, 000 is for the interstate movers, the auto hauler who's shipping my car to Los Angeles, the one way airline ticket, and for the first months rent and security deposit. I feel abandoned, and ignored. People think that a mentally ill person, is like having leprosy, or that I'm a freak of nature. I know that living near my children will help me immensely, especially when my depression, bipolar and anxiety are at their worse. I never thought my life would turn out like this, but I don't have choice, and I have to deal with the cards that I was dealt. In closing, if I can get any financial donation, or a mover or auto hauler who would donate their time and space to deliver my furniture and car as a donation, or any apartment complex who accepts a 2 bedroom Section 8 Voucher anywhere near the ocean, because of it's serenity, and in a safe and low crime area. In closing, I want to apologize to my family, especially my three children in writing for help. I know this could be an embarrassing for them. They don't know that I am doing this. So please forgive me. I am praying, hoping, and begging for your help. I can be reached at 847-452-8071, or May God bless you for taking the time reading the plight that I'm in. Gratefully yours, Mike L person Y I
