Accident Recovery

Unexpectedly attacked by unseen wildebeasts, I leapt for shelter in my trusty van...but was crushed by circumstances out of my control and forced to retreat to Northside Hospital for treatment of a crushed elbow.
There, the plot thickened. I was diagnosed with diabetes and FLESH EATING BACTERIA.

I remain here, recovering thanks to the attentive staff, friends and a support cat. But regrettably, I am ungainfully employed, as an independent contractor.

I need to get back on my feet, and have the ability to live at home, rather than under a bridge. I am asking for your help during this transition.
