My housemate moved out and away in late March. As of June 1, I have no income coming in at all. Although I am trying to find work, it's difficult due to my age and medical conditions, which include mobility issues and problems with cognition. Currently I am undergoing many doctor's visits and tests looking for problems in, among other areas, my brain. I have applied for state disability, but will not receive a determination for several months. I am receiving assistance in the form of food stamps and Medi-Cal, but I do not qualify for cash assistance. I have been selling anything that someone will buy, but I've about sold everything, even some things that were precious to me. So far, I have been able to keep utilities from being turned off and house payments from falling far behind. However, that is becoming more and more impossible to do. There are so many areas where I am falling further and further behind, i.e household bills, gas for the car, trying to replace the bald tires on the car, personal items such as toiletries, medicines for me and for my River girl, the list goes on and on.
Asking for help from friends and relatives is very hard. Admitting how close I may be to losing everything is very hard. I need help. I hope to be able to hang on in order to receive the determination from disability and to find some form of employment that I can do with my physical and mental limitations.
I am asking for the grace of God to touch friends and relatives in this way, that I will not lose my house and will find my way back to a happy, prosperous life. I know this is God's plan for me.
