I would first like to say Thank You , To anyone who takes the time to read this. To anyone unknown who takes a moment to consider giving me help in my time of need. My name is Michael I am a server in Atlanta. When asked, "what are one of your worst traits?" I am usually reminded of what I consider to be one of my best; I am more than willing to help others, but I sometimes have a problem accepting help myself. In early October I had just found a consistent means of mobility, and had just moved into a great new apartment! Shortly after, I was hit in the front of a multiple car accident caused by a distracted driver. I received injuries to my back, arm and shoulders. I was very lucky to be able to receive medical treatments soon. What I did not anticipate was that during the healing process I would be so limited in my abilities to complete my job or move as efficient as I am accustom. If my job truly knew the restrictions that I was under they would not have allow me to work at alI. Knowing this I kept my accident a secret(as long as possible in a restaurant.) I decreased my availability to make my scheduled doctor's appointments. When I was working would ask for sections that were more relaxed or closer to the kitchen to limit my movement. In doing so, limiting my ability to make my budget. My appointments continued into most of the holiday season. I slowly got better as we came into early December. By this time I had to earn back my place on the floor and on the schedule. All of the shifts that I was missing from work had began to overwhelm me financially. I have been trying to "catch up" ever since, and I am now coming short on my rent. I do have a portion of what is owed and of course I am awaiting checks because that is my restaurants form of payment. I just have not been able to pull it together this time. I usually do not, but I am so humbly asking this time for help. I do understand that my notice is short. If you cannot help today in what I have waited to be my last hour of need I am still greatful. It is not not always easy for some of us, as it is for others to share in a time of embarrassment. It is a beautiful thing to know that there's someone to listen or pay attention. Thank You all! Michael
