INJURED ON THE JOB

I am trying to raise money for myself, but the page was set up by a friend and given to me  something I really do not want to do.  However I'm at a point I need to eat my pride and ask for serious help.I took the advice  of an Industry friend and decided to.make this. On August 19th 2019 I was in an accident while at work and broke my back.  I am completely unable to work or do much of anything.  I have applied for assistance and in most cases I have been denied.  I am supposed to be getting workmanship comp but have yet to receive anything.  I did get approved for some help from the door Industry through the Vertical Lift Outreach which I am grateful for, but while being the maximum payment it only starts to touch my bills.  The month of July was already a tough month for me, totalling my vehicle which I was waiting for the next day to receive a paycheck to pay the insurance.  It had lapsed the day before  and they would not work with me. So I don't even have a vehicle but have payments.  I missed lots of work in July for personal reasons so I was already behind when I was crushed.  I have 2 beautiful daughters to take care of and if I didn't have them I would be OK losing everything.  They are my priority.   I don't remember the last time I actually had a real meal at this point just so I could make sure they ate.  Everything I do is for them in the end.  Will I end up getting workmans comp payments, yes.  When? I have no idea. And it will only be 66% of average from a check that was just enough to get by. I really did not want to ask for help but I'm at my breaking point.  I know everyone works hard for their money and I don't expect anything at all, but it would be greatly appreciated if I received any relief. 2 months into this and I am.now broken even. more. I am about to be evicted. I am about to give up all custody of my children because I cannot afford to feed them. I am at my mental breaking point and cannot take much more. I have dealt with unbearable stress in my life but this one is too much for even me. I am broken physically mentally and emotionally. And now financially. I cannot do this alone anymore.
