Ben is out of work hurt and needs help

First and foremost, I hate asking for money. However, this is an emergency. At the end of May I tore a muscle in my shoulder which is preventing me from lifting much of anything and laying flat in bed is impossible; I've been sleeping sitting-up in a chair for a month now. Insurance has been dragging their feet this entire time, which apparently is normal, but bills are piling-up, the fridge is emptying, and rent is due. I still have weeks of Physical Therapy and possible surgery to get through before returning to work is an option, with no real idea when my Insurance will finish reviewing my case and allowing my access to my Sick Leave; until then it's being held hostage and I'm at a total loss of support for myself and my Mother, who cannot work herself due to her own debilitating injuries. This is the lowest I've ever been, and without help, I shudder to think what the next month brings. Any help at all is incredibly appreciated at this time of need, as soon as possible. Thanks immensely for your time, and to those donating, you have my endless respect and admiration.
