Disabled for 3-5 months

Well,I've seen this out there and I'm at my wits end, so I thought I'd give it a shot. On Friday, April 11th I was walking to my car and tripped on the sidewalk that was cracked and broken. I seemingly broke my ankle in a spiral fracture and really damaged it. The diagnosis is that I can not stand on it for at least 3 months and most probably will have to have a plate and pins attached to the ankle. This in itself is  severely inconvenient, but the real problem is that I have no way of bringing in any income. All my sources of income are laborious, involving the use of my arms and legs. ie, trade show decorating, display set-up, private chefing, and sound system set up/operator. all of the above are freelance gigs, so I have no unemployment to fall back on or any sick pay or leave.

So, basically I can not work for at least three to five months and have no income coming in during that time. In the mean time I'm trying to find any kind of work I can do that does not require any type of physical labor. I also can not drive since it is my right ankle that is injured, so that makes it hard to get work as well. I am a musicain and artist, so I will try and sell any works that I have and create some new work to sell as well. If anyone feels so incline to donate to my cause I will send them some music and art of their choice. I've never done anything like this before and feel a little odd doing this but it seems to what people have to do these days for help. Any help at all would be appreciated as I'm just trying to pay my monthly bills.  I hope I can return the favor someday. Thank you, Ann
