Help Disabled Vet Restart Living not just existing

Hello. My name is Dave Beebe a disabled USAF Security Police K-9 handler. Retired . My story started in 2011 when my wife Lynn and I moved here and started  a little retirement business and dreamed of the golden years in the beautiful  Tennessee  mountains. We started out great loving life. THEN my wife went in the hospital and we heard words we had never thought we'd hear. ITS TERMINAL. Believing in God and being positive we were determined to beat it.  That took every dime we had. We had to close the business. Lossing  even more money. They gave Lynn 6 to 8 months. I was determined to make it her best months. She asked   I gave. I promised  her I'd  take care of her at home. It started to get bad. My health was going down careing for her  24 / 7. I got private nursing. GOD was that expensive . We finally lost our fight 3 and one half years after the nightmare started. I have exhausted everything and way behind in bills. WAIT it gets worse.  The transmission in our car blow up.  In poor health and no car I start working well you guessed it. I could not do it.  Depression, set in bad and  I didn't realize it  being alone and broke the landlord says pay up or get out. So I moved  into a dump compared to the house we had together.  YES you guessed it .It got even worse. Trying to put my life back together I switched banks to a bank down here.  The Air Force pay center switched the last 2 numbers of my new account. So the money went to the bank and the bank sent it back. That puts you into an inactive status. That shut down all my income. It is like your dead.  Along came  Covid 19.  Limited manning . So here I sit no pay.  Getting even further behind. They are working on it. Thats what I get from them.   It will get fixed but you can only go so long without money. It's like air you need it.  AND THEN  I get notified by IRS.  YOU owe back taxes. Yes my fault. When Lynn died I basically shut down. I stuck my head in the sand for nearly 2 years.  I have had to hire a tax attorney. MORE MONEY I DON'T HAVE. The good news he will be able to settle the taxes soon but that will take the back pay the Air Force owed me and I'll  still have to pay the attorney the rest of his fee.  Now the unpaid bills and late charges have distroyed  my credit. I have 2 creditors threatening court action. I can't barrow if I  wanted to.  To cut costs I have moved  with my dog Maggie into my car. An old 2000 Chevy impala.  It took me 2 years to get this car. But thank god it runs.  My few household item are in storage. Yes another expense.  It's  Getting colder and I'm getting older and well my health is not the best. My teeth are bad and the estimate for that is nearly $6000. I'M TIRED OF FIGHTING I JUST WANT TO LIVE. I'm not one to give up. . But I really feel like giving up. If it wasn't for people like you and God I probably would have given up. Emmanuel Baptist church helps and has given me the will to push through this nightmare. With your help.  IF I PAID OFF EVERYTHING AND GOT MY TEETH FIXED I WOULD NEED NEARLY $15000.  I PRAY TO GOD every day and have been saved this year and baptized !  I trust in the Lord and know he will handle this through people like you. I really need some help. Any thing is appreciated. I had to  resorted to panhandling and that's getting very old , cold and more dangerous. I intend to work through my church with the homeless full time when I no longer have to beg all day just to live. If I didn't have a painfull disability I'd love to work. I have tried . It's to painfull and I'm to slow now.  Please folks could you please help.  Anything  collected over what I need to pay off everything and get back In a real home I will donate to the church. I did not take into account deposits  for a home because I know I can't look for a place until they start paying me and I find a nice place that works for me. I'm not trying to get rich I'm just trying to live so I can work for God and enjoy life again. When you live like this people look down at you like your some kind of druggie or drunk. I am far from that.  I learned this calling from being in this situation. I'M SO TIRED OF LIVING LIKE THIS.  That I have learned from all of this. Also. I had never read the bible until this. And so far I have read it twice. I have learned a lot but I have much more to learn. I had to sell a lot of stuff during Lynn's  illness and since just to live. I'm not asking you for a 70 inch flat screen tv I just want to live like a human and not looked at like I'm some kind of animal. GOD has taught me so much from this experiance.  I PRAY God touches your heart and you can help.  GOD BLESS YOU ALL ~  THANK YOU FOR READING  THIS ~ SHARING THIS ~AND SHOWING YOU CARE.  Please pass this page on to as many people as you can  So I can finally end the nightmare and move on. I'm  not sure what God has in mind for me but I am so ready.
