Seize the Day
Organized by: Jennifer Armbruster
Hi, I'm Jen. I moved to Florida away from my family in Pennsylvania a year ago with my son and the love of my life, Andrew. I was very excited to begin my happily ever after. Andrew and I were highschool sweethearts. He broke up with me senior year to join the marines. He wanted to better himself for me and he said it wasn't fair to me to have to wait for him. 12 years went by and he still loved me . He served in Iraq for 8 years and now has a purple heart and PTSD. We decided to give us a try again and picked up right where we left off. We bought our dream home and were planning on getting married May of 2015. Since then, he started second guessing his life and decided he doesn't want any of this. My heart is broken. My future has been ripped from under me and now my son and I need to start over. I've just been a home maker since we moved here and Andrew was supporting us with his government job. He no longer buys my seizure medication and I'm delinquent with my student loan. I have no car and pretty soon will not have a home. I have epilepsy and cannot afford my medication. I never thought I would be here asking for help, but I dont know what else to do. I'm desperate. I applied for public assistance and got approved for $357 a month for food and my son has medical coverage. I'm trying to raise money to get a car, a babysitter, rent, and to afford my medication which is $100/month, doctor visits for my checkups, and sleep studies. Stress is a major seizure trigger and I am stessed to the max! If i have a seizure I won't be able to drive for 6 months. Andrew said I can rent our home and he will move out. The mortgage is $1400/month. I promise if anyone helps me, I will pay it forward the second I am financially stable. Until then, I am going to just keep praying.
