Hi, I am 46 years old and I have been out of work since October 3, 2014. I was working at my best friend son daycare as a van driver when my I was at the gas station filling up. My right leg and back was in so much pain that I could barely move, but me and my aide had to get the school age children from school. Danielle the other main driver plus my second boss was out; due to accident. So, I had some of hers as well as mine schools to pick up. Plus, our transportation general manager boss was always on my back, finding fault, and riding me very hard. I have been driving for over 15 years with CDL- PS: driving school buses, couple other daycare, Goodwill on 91st n Silver Spring and Laidlaw for handicapped, elderly, and wheel-chaired bound. Anyway, it was my 1st full-time job in 4 years. She was younger than me, plus I was hired to clean the daycare as well. I do not know if she was threatened or jealous of my skills and knowledge as an experienced driver and best friend as well as a family member of the owners. I have applied for disability and S.S.I. I do have an Attorney finally. I applied back in 2011 and was denied. I was denied this time as well but my attorney had applied for an appeal. I am waiting to see the judge. Then on December 31st, 2014, while looking at a place. The landlady took me and my son to the basement. It was dark. There was no light bulbs. So, me and landlady walked down the basement stairs. She fell on last step. I fell on 3rd last step. I felt something crystal like. I hit my had, right knee, and hip. My cane slipped from underneath me. I put my left hand on the wall, and felt something cold. My son was at the top of the concrete stairs. He shine his cell phone light. It was huge icicile on the wall, and huge thick Ice on the last 3 concrete stairs. I had Concussion for 3 Months, 2 bulging degenerative discs with left sciatica nerve in the leg, arthritis in the right shoulders; doctor at the emergency January 2nd, 2015. I got the place. I told them about going to emergency room, and that my insurance was not going to pay my medical bill. She said Neither are they. So, I got n Attorney. I went to pain management last year in May 2015, and my attorney asked me to discharge because it has been 1 1/4 years; time to close my case. So, I did. The landlord got mad, did not want the rent. Took me and my son to court. had his Attorney to give us until May 9th, 2016 to get out. I have tried several time to get my Bachelor Degree, and to become a license Minister but being pregnant- dropped out-1989,Illness/Fall prevented me. I went to the 1st two classes offered at my church- New Members and Next Level. Next was becoming a License Minister. I went 2 Tuesdays, but having a Concussions caused me to dropped out last year. Ugh! So, now with your help and prayers. I know this time I can overcome, get my own place, get out of debt, and go back to college (Graduate)
