Most Desperate Times...

Friends, I need your help.

I am stripped bare of pride and ego.  Things have become incredibly difficult financially, and I am reaching out for any aid and goodwill you can spare.

Friends, here's the sad tale.

In February, I lost my job of eleven years.  The short story is that I was terminated unfairly and I've been fighting it ever since.  Unfortunately, my fight has thus far been in vain.  Also, after only 8 weeks of unemployment, my former employer fought to stop payments...and somehow they won.  

To make matters worse, my constant search for employment since February has yielded no results.  I have been driving for Lyft to earn some money, but it has not proven a reliable source of income.

In a stroke of galactic misfortune, at the same time I lost my job, my girlfriend (with whom I live) was diagnosed with cancer.  Her course of treatment made it impossible to work with any consistency.  We were both unemployed and she was so sick and to be blunt...every day was a struggle.  

While she is now doing better, there is still surgery ahead.  Even though we are very positive in her health outlook, the almost 5 months since this all happened have been  financially lean.  We are now in legitimate danger of both losing our only car and eviction.

Friends, I am desperate.

If any of you can help, I will be forever grateful.  I have no way to pay back anyone, beyond my unending appreciation and gratitude.

Friends, I love you all.

I know we all struggle.  I know we all have limited resources.  I'm simply asking...begging...if you can help with a donation or even a share, I will be truly humbled.

Last day in Vegas.

Tomorrow, we start the long drive back to Indiana. Any help you can offer as we make this necessary transition would be so amazing.

No matter what, thank you to everyone who has offered encouragement, assistance, and advice. This last year has been awful, but you have helped me survive.

Thank you to you all!

Friends--

The time is here. I'm leaving Las Vegas on Thursday. Cross-country drive to Indiana, then total life reboot. If you can help at all in these last few days, it would make a huge difference.

So many of you have been incredibly generous over the last several months, and I know I can never repay you. Thank you seems not nearly enough, but thank, thank you, thank you!!

Short update--

Thank you to everyone who has helped and shared! You have saved me in so many ways. As I transition from Las Vegas to Indiana, I could use any donations you can spare. Only two weeks away, but I'm still struggling hard to survive. ❤❤ to all!

P/S Indiana offers proximity to family & friends, which provides a network of help as I continue to fight for SS disability. This last year has been a massive struggle, and I owe my survival to the amazing friends, family, and even online acquaintances who have been generous.

My friends--

I still need your help. I'm just trying to survive the next 20 days...then I'll be gone from Vegas and once again on Indiana!

If you can help with a donation, it would be greatly appreciated. For everyone who has donated in the past few months, thank you!

You are all amazing!!!
