Hello. This is Annmarie. Let me give a small history of my frightening and very real situation. It's a long story with many turns. Please read completely.Please allow me to start with being a widdowed mom for way too long. We had that under control. Then superstorm Sandy hit. It took out half of my house. We were on our way back from that with the help of Fema and my church. ( much of which is back to falling apart. Including my heating system.) Then one day I found myself on the floor nearly unable to get up. After rushing to the hospital I learned that I needed emergency surgury. They took out some vertebrae and replaced it with titanium parts. Thank you Dr. Salerno.) Over a year of recovery. Continued physical therapy for back injury. Returned to work where I am a grocery store clerk. (thought we had that licked too.) After being back for a few months I was involved in a motor vehicle accident. It took away my progress entirely and so much more. my confidence, my faith in question... Once more excruciating pain. Another year out of work. After an unsuccessful round of pain management, involving much travel and medication and yet more physical therapy. I got a second opinion. Thank you Dr. Li. No more narcotic pain killers. Instead a nerve blocker, anti inflammatory and Water therapy for my back. Things are once more manageable. I'm back to work. Hard to stay on my feet, still manageable. Here is my situation. Having spent so much time on disability is making our survival here more than difficult. Financially it has taken a great toll. Mentally, physically. I have not had money to support the upkeep of my home. It is unfit to bring a Renter in. Nearly unfit for my family and pets. 2 Space heaters and avery old and inefficient fireplace are hardly doing the job. I looked into a career change. My body would be pushed to its limmit. Not feasable. Have the house up for sale. Wasted better than a year with an extremely inexperienced sales person. Changed that representation. I pray everyday day countless times. Not eligable for loans. Tried that too. ( I don't make enough money....) My son who has lost his seasonal part time job. He can only do so much. He tried taking day work to learn that it is extraordinarily common to work like a dog for these people and then be given a runaround when it came payday. Now his unemployment has started it is only a portion of the part time work they gave him. He can barely take care of his own expenses. My paycheck belongs to bills before I get It. It is day to day week to week for us now. The reason I decided to start this go find me is that I have precisely 2 months to raise the $13,000 dollars it will take to keep us all from being homeless. It is not something I am happy to do. Things are dire. If anyone can help us keep the roof over our heads, we would be forever grateful. Sleepless nights, depression, feeling desperate, alone and barely alive anymore. I love my son more than life. I miss my parents who left me this home. I feel like all I have ever done is to try to please everyone I encounter and instead I am left feeling that I have disappointed and put in harm's way all that has ever been important. As if all of these issues beyond our control have made me unreliable. A tired epoch failure. My friends and my God who I belive to be a good, good father, I am praying once more that we can pull together to give us another try at pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.very sincerely yours, Anna
