I lost my wife to severe schizophrenia a few years back. My son lost is mom. She abandoned us and we have not seen or heard from her since. I am a veteran with severe PTSD and live on a small pension and disability. I am going through the division of vocational rehabilitation to re enter the work place with my disability.
Last month I was the victim of a crime that cost me a lot of money and I am in serious debt and am struggling to just keep light on and get an even footing again.
I have a business I am ready to start and have a licensing deal made with a major sewing machine co. I want to start now but my other problems are hindering me.
My electric bill this winter is at $1,000.00 and my water sewer and trash are over $300.00. I am trying to get things I need to start work again and have no money for anything.
I make enough to sustain myself and being robbed of my last months money that was going to pay these bills has left me feeling like I am going to lose everything.
My son is a sr in HS and will not graduate if we have to leave spokane because of our situation. I am doing this for my son.
I know there are people who can help. We need food. Bills paid. Clothes. Gas. etc.
We are hurting more than anyone knows. We miss mom and hurt over her bad. Last we heard she was going to marry some guy she met.
She never sends chrsitmas presants to her son. She never sends him money, or socks o underwear. Nothing. Not even merry christmas.
If my bills are paid off, I will be able to sustain myself just fine. I do make enough money. Medical problems, the wifes mental illness, being robbed and waiting for DVR to get through the process to work has complicated and threatened all the work I have done to keep this house over our heads.
This is not for me. Its for my boy so he can have a chance at college next year, so he can graduate where he has been stable at with his friends.
Please, I can't beg enough. I know if enough small donations come in they will add up.
We need a car too. The toyota mini van we have a gas hog and would like to sell it for someting better.
