Help give a second chance

Hello everyone.

My name is Karma. I am a queer non binary human living in beautiful Victoria, BC. I feel so blessed to be here and it is difficult for me to reach out but several people have encouraged me to share my story so here I am.

So you probably don't know this about me but a few months back I was unfortunately the victim of a hit-and-run. Being that it was a hit-and-run I was not fortunate to get any financial support or any sort of settlement. I've been fighting for a better life on my own since I was 14. I left home when I was 16. I have no family or anyone that I can turn to if I need something and although it hasn't been easy I am thankful because it's made me into the strong person that I am.

I've been trying really hard to start over but it seems near impossible right now. After getting hit by the car while I was on my scooter I pretty much lost my mobility and was confined to a wheelchair. Shortly after the accident, I lost my job and then right after tha the pandemic happened. It's been one hardship after another and I'm exhausted. Thankfully, I was able to get on disability but it is still a huge struggle every month to pay my rent, get groceries, pay my bills, look after my kitty who has multiple health issues, etc.

I was already struggling a lot before as I deal with multiple chronic health issues, previous traumatic brain injuries, anxiety and depression but since I was able to work at the time I was able to manage a little bit better. When I was working I could go for regular physical therapy. Thankfully I have managed to regain some mobility but I desperately need to keep going for physical therapy regularly to be more mobile. I'm struggling between choosing between my health/wellness or keeping a roof over my head, etc. I am eager to find a job and I am trying really hard but it is extremely difficult since I'm immunocompromised in addition to my physical limitations. I'm trying to build a better life for myself but in order to do so I need a little bit of help.

With your help I would be able to get regular physical therapy so that I can be more mobile and not in constant pain; I would be able to get a laptop for myself so that I can use my customer service skills to get a job working remotely; and last but not least, I would be able to get a proper bed for myself so I can actually sleep at night instead of tossing and turning in pain because I'm currently sleeping on whatever free mattress I can find until it breaks down.

I know it's a lot to ask but it would mean the world to me to be able to overcome these hurdles so I can go back to being independent again. I've come as far as I can on my own. Now, I need your help please Every little bit means a lot

Thank you and bless up ❤️
