Heart Survivor's Life Crisis Fund

I am Sandy Jackson.  At 47, I had the first of four heart attacks and now have six stents. I also have diagnoses of Coronary Artery Disease,  Chronic Heart Failure,  Anixiety Disorder, Panic Disorder and  Depression,  have balance issues and degenerative disc disease with severe pain complications, so there are many medications that I  MUST not go without or I would not be alive to even write this. 

My entire family: Mom, Dad, and brother, have all passed and all from heart disease.  Heredity...  (:   But life itself: a beautiful gift and for that I am truly thankful.

I was mostly a working Mom and my children are grown, and I've been blessed with three grown sons.
I thought my 4th heart attack was the ultimate life challenge for me. But right now, I have to focus on my own REAL LIFE SURVIVAL. 

My Life Crisis is this: I've been married for 33 years.,,and guess I lived in oblivion, believing in that happily ever after. On June 8,  my husband left suddenly....walked out after packing without even saying goodbye to my son or to me.--- leaving many tangled webs behind..it was completely unexpected and devistating. I had NO preparation whatsoever.  I wish I did.  I  have gone into survival mode. I have started ads for roommate, ads for selling every item of any worth, cutting EVERYWHERE possible. I never ever thought I'd create a GoFundMe for my own needs, but I am hoping to capture the heart of somebody who has maybe been there...or just touch someone who cares and can HELP. ANYTHING..any amount at all..will help me maneuver the bills during my transition,

I feel abandoned, scared, and alone in this world, yet my inner strength and faith is pushing me forward. One of my sons has just received a very serious diagnosis which is potentially life threatening.  I just keep thinking what If I don't make every attempt to call out for help. 

I'm trying to establish a LIFE CRISIS SURVIVAL FUND that tides me over til I can establish a way to make ends meet. Total Sudden Abandonment is a shock.   But I must find a way, and I can and I will. I need to deal with my 13 different medications and the three doctors that I need to see monthly and others.  They all require copays I do not have. There  are no savings and at this moment bleak options. My income alone on disability is one fifth of what ours was together. After reducing all the bills, I find I am nearly 800 a month short.

I know I can make it through this...I am reaching out to the whole WORLD right now,  for help to get through. Thanks for reading this from the bottom of my heart.
