Disabled and Have No Hope
Organized by: Melissa Storm
My name is Melissa and on May 7, 2016 I was attacked by my daughter's now ex fiancé who stands 6'3 and weighs over 250lbs. According to witnesses he grabbed me from behind and held me above his head and at about 7ft high he slammed me down to the concrete head first knocking me unconscious. I now have permanent brain damage and am disabled. I cannot walk without a cane, I can't talk without stuttering, I have lost over 30 lbs because I have lost my sense of taste and smell, He crushed my vocal cords, I can't remember anything and can barely drive thanks to the brain damage I now have to wear diapers which is the most humiliating thing in the world. I have maxed out my credit cards paying for doctor visits and diapers. It's hard for me to be alone because I fall a lot. But I can't afford a caregiver. This man was chocking my daughter out and she was blue and I saved her. I don't regret that but I didn't deserve this. I have a 6 year old daughter who tries to take care of me. I am fighting hard not to loose our house but I am afraid we will. I have used this site before but never have I needed it more. May God bless you.
