Well that's that! Yesterday was the last day of hoping. Just wanted to say thank you crowdwise it's an amazing thing your doing. And thank you See More


Years ago I was attacked and stabbed with a butcher knife in the top right of my right leg, near my groin. Had it not been for a strangers fast thinking of removing my jeans and applying pressure with her own t-shirt, I would be dead. Years later after tearing my knee ligaments time after time and time again the damage is too much. Now my body is even tilted with my right should over an inch lower than my left. This makes my spine scream most days. Trying to keep working I became addicted to pain killers I was prescribed. After the worst battle of my life I beat the addiction with the help of my family and a methadone treatment. Wanting off the methadone aswell, I finished a very important job for my employers, having to due with a foreign countries embassy here in Canada. Even after missing a few days of my daily treatment of the program I continued and finished the job for my employers and the customers. Having missed a few days I thought NOWS THE TIME! I can get off the methadone now and truly be sober. This idea came from myself and my employer who almost daily told me I "needed to get the shit" I agreed. During the embassy job my employer told me if I pull this job off I can disappear for a month and recover, even take the time to "get off the shit" So, I did and I did! I finished the job and started to take a few days off to see if I could handle the withdrawal process on my on. Within a week I was let go. After working for cash (waiting to be put on books) I can not even apply for employment benifits. To top it off I have to leave where I am staying in a week... maybe 2 (if I kiss much much ass and beg) Soon as I told them I'd lost my job, I was out! Look, I'm not trying to get rich. I just really need some help really fast. Just enough for an apartment... and maybe a bed?? I am a big believer in paying it forward and promise to keep doing it. Anyway, thank for for listening. Felt good to just vent it. Thank you.
