Father of 4 needs help

Donation protected
Hello ,my name is Andrew Millar . I live in Maple Ridge B.C and  am raising money for my wife and 2 Autistic Boys ,we are going to lose our home because i am soon going to be unable to work.

In 2004 i was hit by a car and suffered neck and back injurys as well as a brain injury from hitting my head on the pavement . I had to have almost all my teeth root canaled and capped and my nose and jaw were both broke , Because of this injury i suffer from depression and anxiety and i have memory loss . I am in constant pain as i have now developed Arthritis in my neck and spurs on my spine which push onto my nerves causing pain .

Because of this injury i have fits of rage and while at work one day i yelled at my boss and was fired from my job of over 20 years . I had a nervous breakdown and was hospitalized but i pulled my self up and found a new job . A few months into my new job i took some medication for a ear infection and developed Stephen Johnson Sydrome . The skin in my mouth ,inner thighs ,penis and scrotum fell off in sheets .I was very lucky that the hospital knew what this was and it took me 2 months of agonzing pain to recover .Just after i recovered the retina in my right eye detached (they think due to the Stephen Johnson's . It took 3 operations to fix and i now how limitied vision in my right eye which is getting worse .
The latest blow was yesterday when i was told i have a severe slipped disc in my back as well as moderate Arthritis. I have also been diagonsed with Fibromylagia which causes pain in itself as well as devastating fatigue .

I may to have to go on Disibility as i can no longer physically do my job safely . This will be a devastating blow to my family as my wife does not work ,she has her hands full with our 2 boys whom are both Autistic. 
We pay for the youngest therapys and tools while my older son lives downstairs supported by my wife and i.

Because of all the unpaid time i have had off work ,our debts are now overwhelming and we barely have enough money to buy grocery's every month .
Any money i can raise on here will be for my wife and 2 kids to use ,to pay down debt and for basic living needs .

Our mortgage is up for renewel soon and i fear the bank will make us sell our home,which is all we have at the moment . I think if i was to lose my house i would suffer another breakdown ,one that im not sure i would recover from .

Even through all this pain ,i have worked hard everyday to put a roof over our heads and food on our table ,but i am at the point were my body is saying no more . I feel totally helpless in this situation ,but i have done my best to help other when help was needed .,

Laying awake at night worrying about how to get through the next day , having to get up in the morning and have your body scream at u ,enough . But what is really hard for me is knowing i am failing my family at providing for them . 

I believe strongly in Karma and have lived my life that way ,helping others ,treating others with dignity and respect and knowing in return i would be treated the same.
