Medical and Home Repair for Family

Hi, I'm writing this for my family. I'm not one to ask for hand outs and I really like to do things and get things done myself.  Writing this is a bit embarrassing  I have to admit. I'm kinda hesitant doing this because I want to do for my family what a man should do. Provide for his family. This all started when I injured my back and neck in 2010. I'm disabled now. I lost my job of 13 years back in 2011. I tried to work as long as I could to provide for my family even when it killed me. I still do as much as I can but I only have so many good days. I've had numerous procedures done on my back and neck. Now I need to have surgery on my neck and I have since began to suffer from severe asthma, a chronic nerve disorder, manic depressive disorder and Stroke among other things which has all taken a toll on my mental health. 

My wife and I have been married since 2003. She is my awesomeness. Her name is Darlene and she is Wonderful. She is the greatest thing that will ever happen to me and she is all I need. She is my sunshine in a dark place. She is a very hard worker and she does all she can for my family.  But All she has to do is be here.  I also have two boys Devyn age 9, and Seth age 8. They are full of energy and keep my wife and I young at heart.  They are my sidekicks and I love them all more than I could ever put into words.

I've gotten a lot done with the help of family. I'm grateful for that. We lost our home along with a lot of what we owned.  We had no choice but to move to a old rotting home that had to be completely rebuilt. The home is on relatives property and we do what we can to repair the home when we have extra money but that is rare. I know everyone has hard times but it's just been never ending for us.  I know some will not understand and will point the finger at me but I can't worry about that. Darlene works full time.  We take good care of our children and I work on the house when I can on my good days.  We just need to be able to get on our feet so we can breath again.  

We are in debt up to our ears because we've put it all in this home and my medical bills are never ending and there's no way I can see light through this. I have a Pulmonologist, Cardiologist, Neurologist. Pain management, Physical Therapy Phsychiatrist which are routine visits, E.R. Visits, Ambulance Bills, Hospital Stay, Outrageous Presciption cost that absolutly kills us each month. and the list goes on.

Some of the repairs that need to be made are... 1.) Siding needs to be installed. On half the house. 2.) Flooring in kitchen, dining, and back entrance. It's just OSB board right now. 3.) Livingroom needs built. the house does not have a living room. Using dining area for living space. 4.) Skirting needs installed. Skirting needs installed on most the house. 5.) Floor joist in the majority of the home needs girders and piers.  Doors need installed along with trim throughout the house. That is some of the more major repairs. Myself with the help of my family have rebuilt the majority of this home.

Any help we can get will be appreciated greatly. and is a Blessing. Thanks in advance for everything. Thanks for your time for reading this. It says I should post a time frame so I guess by the end of the year but I don't expect it. And the Doctor bills will keep coming I'm sure.
