I was too scared and too proud to ask for help to beat a deadly drug addiction for the last 3 1/2 years, but I have recently reached out to my family and friends who love me, and I’m on my way to recovery... however, my family is facing substantial financial burdens that are mentally and emotionally devastating. These burdens, as well as unrelenting pain stemming from my chronic health conditions, are fueling my ongoing battle with addiction. I’m getting medical treatment to beat my addiction, but the stress of our financial situation makes this battle much more difficult. Financial crisis and a fear of judgment kept me from asking for help for 3 1/2 years. But I’m not too proud to ask for help anymore.
This addiction is life threatening. It is a very urgent situation, but I’ve taken the steps to start my recovery and I will beat this, because I am strong enough!! I’ve beat it before, and I have much more to live for now that I’m a mother to the most beautiful & amazing little girl!!
The severity of our financial need has contributed to depression and anxiety that is debilitating at times. Further fueling my drug use and perpetuating the cycle of addiction...
We need help to pay our monthly bills while my husband gets a much needed knee replacement. The need for this surgery is long overdue; however will require a 3-4 month recovery time due to the nature and the physical requirements of his job during which he will not be able to return to work or earn his salary from working. We need help meeting our financial needs during this time of recovery. I’m currently appealing the loss of my social security disability benefits. I have chronic health conditions that limit my physical abilities and these benefits are necessary for my family’s financial survival. The loss of my benefits has put us in a financial crisis that is made even worse by the impending lack of income for the time of recovery from the knee replacement surgery.
We also need car repairs to fix a vehicle that is necessary for daily transportation needs.
We have no resources for our family to replace this income or get the vehicle repairs. We are currently researching possible temporary disability benefits for my husband, but these benefits would only pay a portion of our lost income for the necessary recovery time, and could take months or more to be approved for. Please help us meet one need at a time . So much is unknown and tomorrow is not promised, so I can only take care of today. Our first priority is to get our car repaired, which we can do for $200. Once I have that done, I can readjust and pray about what we need. Even if you only have $1, your donation is helpful and appreciated more than I can say!! May God bless you abundantly for your support!!
Love & light always!!
