Help Me Get "On My Feet Again"

Please help.

I'm a sever diabetic with neuropathy in both legs and feet. I have developed a diabetic ulcer on my right foot big toe. It cannot heal unless I am able to stay off the foot as much as possible. The work I do at the moment does not allow for this, as it is very physically demanding. I have short term disability that I can take, but it pays 60% of my base pay. That equals $6 an hour. I simply cannot survive on this amount and be able to pay bills and medical expenses.

As you can see, the entire toe is swollen and is my entire right foot. I am hoping not lose the toe. But I cannot push and pull heavy pallets, lift heavy object, and stay on my feet 8 hours a night and still expect it to heal.

I am asking for help with this issue, as I feel I've run out of options and I need to heal badly. The amount I've included represents what I would need to cover my rent (which cannot be met on $6/hr) and some medical necessities for 6 months...which I believe I need to heal properly (and was suggested by a doctor I take)

I know times are hard all around, and am aware that so many people are in dire straits. I truly appreciate your taking the time to read this, and thank you for your consideration.
