A year and half-ago, I was told I wasn't needed at my job of 12+ years, and cut back to 2 days a week temporarily.
A month later, I suffered a heart attack, and was ultimately ordered off work completely by my doctor, due to stress and anxiety and its effects on me. Eventually I was let go, and did not work for almost a full year. I struggled financially, as did my partner and her adult son with whom I live.
Finally, a few months ago - some small hope - I found a low-wage retail job. However, with little training and support from my supervisor, I was again let go, short of completing my 3-month probationary period.
I am again unemployed, and with few job prospects and renewed emotional challenges, I must ask for help from my community, to ensure I can pay the rent until I can find new work.
My goal is to raise 2 months' rent, in 2 weeks' time, so we will not be in danger of becoming homeless, while I look for work.
I could also use any job leads that you may have. The most deepest thanks!
