My Chance

I never imagined being in this place. After my brain aneurysm caused me to black out and crash my car leaving me with a fractured spine..I survived all the surgeries that I drove to alone and drove home from alone..I thought I was strong. The enormous medical bills..loss of memory..some small changes in motor skills..I never thought it was hopeless. I lived in my car for awhile..then a shelter..got a good job..a small apartment..walked to work..always provided a place if anyone needed somewhere to sleep..shower..eat. I believed if I kept going..was a good person that I would be fine.  The brain trauma..strokes..loss of family..it was ok. I have a degree and I will just work. In August I lost my job. I don't have the capability to work from home. I have filed for all kinds of assistance and the year and a half I spent in and out of hospitals leaves me with $100 of food stamps and almost 2 months behind in my rent. My pride is killing me. The bones in my back break and no one can tell me why (5 fractures in 3 years) I just dont want to lose my apartment..I survived and got back on my feet after every hard hit I was dealt. Friends have been kind with a few loans...I will still offer a place to stay or whatever food I have to anyone who needs it until I have to leave..I will continue to look for work...As much as it kills me I just need help to keep my apartment..Any help would be appreciated..I work in healthcare and worked through the beginning of this awful virus..I  hope for all of us we see relief soon. Thank you for reading this..If you cant help me..help someone you can....this was just my chance to ask..........
