I don't want to do this but...

As the title says, I really don't want to do this. I have been diagnosed with a degenerative disease in my spine and I have been medically unable to work since the 2nd of June and so for nearly two months we have been trying to live on Jen's part time income from Ace Hardware. To make matters worse, after spending 5 days in the VA Medical Center psych ward for severe depression and suicidal thoughts, I received a diagnosis of Bipolar disorder Type 2. At this time we are about 30 days away from the bank starting foreclosure on our home. I have applied for assistance from the county and I am in the process of applying for disability through Social Security and the VA but this will take months to resolve. As a last resort, I am reaching out to my friends for help in keeping me, Jen and our 2 Siberian Huskies from being homeless. If you are able to help, I am forever grateful, if you can't I understand completely. We live in uncertain and difficult times. Thank you in advance for your help and keep us in your thoughts.
