After giving birth to my son I was diagnosed with epilepsy forced to stop working for almost 2 years. Later found a job to only get laid off after only 1 year of employment. .Needless to say I got so far behind on our bills...I made a decision to go to school and got A Barber license but because I didn't have clientele and struggled with remembering things I had learn due to my seizures I did not have the money to pay for the rental space and no money to pay bills at home our utilities were shut off my children and I were living out of the car I then owned...I found work through a temp agency in august of this year it was part time at minimum wage so I had to save up my checks for the month to keep our electric on...we are currently using space heaters and I know it is extremely dangerous but that's the only way right is still very cold in our home it's scary. I am a single mother I have a son that's a Straight A student and a 2 daughters who are amazing. ..One in college. .even though times have been hard they never complained it really breaks my heart to see them struggle because of wh a terrible happened to me...I am looking for work now because my job assignment has ended. ..I am in a program that is going to help me become a business owner also I will be saving money later to start that process with the promise to help children that are less fortunate because ik how hard it is to survive when there is no one to furnish to...I found it hard to ask for help but just the look on the faces of my children trying to hold on is worth the try...I ask that if you see fit anything given is appreciated from the bottom of my heart
