My name is Erica Simms myself and my 2 kids are penniless and homeless we are living in hotel room day by day I don't if we would have a roof over our heads and food to eat each day I'm calling begging and asking my family and friends to help me keep roof over my kids heads and to feed them.Thanks to some true friends they have paid to keep the hotel room and feed babies. Where I live the family shelter is always stay full to capacity and I'm constantly calling for opening space for myself and my kids. These few months leading up to my situation has been crumbling down brutally on me as single mother once I got sick.Before I got sick I was working at hospital I love my job, had stable home for my kids etc... My family life was struggle but I managing with God help. My life change on 12/09/14 I was at work and I collapse when I woke up I couldn't move my upper nor my lower extremities. I was in so much pain it was unbearable, I was diagnosed with hernia disk in my neck, fibromyalgia and disconnected muscle tissue disease in my legs. I completely over work and word my body out to the point that my body severely weak with several different type of vitamins deficiencies and nerves damage in my legs. I was hospitalized week half in hospital then medical transported rehab center to get strength in my upper and lower extremities.I was in wheelchair, I needed OT and PT . Things we take for granted writing, walking etc..I had to get my strength back to do. months and half in center so 2 months I was away from my kids working hard to get better , I missed Christmas and New Year's with my kids. When I came home I was walking with a walker praised God, I had outpatient OT and PT plus home nurse care for awhile. In mist of all of this I had to do my paperwork for FMLA short term disability benefits through my job, lucky I had enough sick leave and some saving through to pay my bills at this time.Then my life started crumbling my doctor and FMLA couldn't agree on my extension on FMLA so they denied the extension. So my job let me go because I wasnt to come back to work and fmla. I still have my disability benefits and saving. Once disability came to a end I filed unemployment . So once my unemployment came to the end plus my saving. I couldn't paid rent or anything. We lost our home everything Now bring my family to this stiuation With alot of tearful praying and my strong faith my job asked me back and they can accommodate my my restrictions for my disorders, I also found and my application got accepted of house that was for rent.But I don't start my job 08/24/15 with orientation and retraining of computer system.I have to work 2 weeks in the whole. I'm unable to paid for my security deposit and other deposits and food I need to move in the house and this is why I'm here I need help with the security deposit which is first month and last month rent of $800 total of $1600 the additional$400 is for gas and water deposit and some foods to feed my kids once we move in the house. I've never done this before but as mother I would do anything and everything for my babies to give them back theirs stability again. So ask no I beg for your help me to make this happen for my babies. I would be forever grateful and humble for any help. Thanks u for reading my story. God blessed u all.
