Carla Praying for Assistance

I'm a Teacher Assistant with a family of 3 recently diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Kidney Disease (FSGS) -Nephrotic Syndrome with other Morphologic changes- Pathological lesion in Kidney. This has caused me to miss several days at work due to pain, appts, lab work and medical procedures. I am the primary money earner in the household. I have used all my leave for the school year due to this.  My job has been threatened due to missing too many days and doubting my physical capabilities.  Any days missed are docked. This has caused me to get behind on bills and at times I can't afford my prescriptions, co pays, gas, etc.  I have never ask for help or shared my needs with anyone but God! I keep hearing "You have not because you ask not". Now I'm asking for help. Thank you for listening. This was one of the hardest things for me to do (share my story of need).
