52 yr old Vet loses Family Home Truck and Dignity

Update: Its 3 days before Christmas and the place in staying say I have to be out by 2:00. Apparently the charity that was helping me and a couple other vets is out of money. I swear anyone that can help me I'll repay every cent when I get back on my feet. Thank you

If at any point in my prior 50+ years anyone would have told me I'd be doing this I would have laughed loudly.  As I sit here now typing this any pride I may have had has long left me. Well here's my story. A few years back I was bitten by a brown recluse spider on my right testicle. Besides the pain it also created a condition called Priapism. I was taken to Duke hospital for several surgeries that left me alive but a shell of the man I was. Fast forward to 2019. I lose my home to unpaid taxes. I have fought it but the depression weighs on me like being in a dark closet. 2 months after losing my home my truck blows it's engine and I eventually lose it. Now I'm completely homeless. To add to it all  this my mother, grandmother, grandmother,aunt and uncle all have passed in the last year. Leaving me completely alone. All is not bad though I have managed to find a place to stay for a little while. The only problem is it's off of Arrowwood rd. Everyone I know is in Matthews along with work. I need a vehicle. I'm not asked by anyone to give me a vehicle but any help towards me getting one will not be forgotten. I'm better than this I just need a chance to live again.
