Desperate Times, Desperate Measures

I started this campaign almost a year and a half ago and then let it languish when things got better. I had a job, insurance, I was receiving treatment for my anxiety, depression, and medical problems. That has come to a grinding halt and I am in dire straits. I've been out of work since May and I am officially beyond broke. I stupidly thought that I would find work quickly so I delayed filing for unemployment. Yesterday I found out that my claim is under investigation because I was dismissed, not laid off and it will be at least a month before I receive any UI benefits, if I receive them at all. I have been applying for jobs and receiving lots of "Thank you for applying but we're not going to interview you" responses. My anxiety and depression are on the rise as time goes by and I see my situation worsen. I received a text from the pharmacy that I have prescriptions ready but no money to fill them. I checked my email and found a notice from the bank that my account is overdrawn.

I hate asking for help but I need it. It's not a pride thing for me but an understanding that others need help and my asking for help diverts it from others. I do need it though. I'm fortunate enough to have landlords who will work with me, otherwise I would be facing the prospect of homelessness, but I am looking at the very real prospect of not having the medication I need for my medical and mental issues. I would appreciate anything you can do to help. Even if you just share this or stop and pray for me or send good energy out to the Universe. I need whatever help you can offer. Please help me through this. Please.
