Emergency Rent Assistance

As some of you know, I have spent much of the second half of this year on medical leave while I am in intensive therapy to address my post-trumatic stress disorder.  My medical leave is unpaid, so I have not recieved a regular paycheck since July. I paid into a short-term disability insurance plan while I was working, but when I went to file a claim, they intentionally bungled the paperwork and then denied my claim. 

Now my rent has come due, and I do not have enough money to pay it. 

I have asked my online community for help several times recently, and I have been humbled and filled with gratitude each time. With true reluctance and regret, I must ask again.

Please help me pay my rent. 

I am asking for $500 because my rent is ~$1025, depending on the water bill each month, and I have ~$700 to my name right now. If I can get just ~$300 I can afford to write my landlord a check, but then I will have literally no money at all, which is why I'm asking for a little more than that.

Thank you to everyone who has already been so generous to me this year, and thank you in advance for any further generosity you wish to share with me.
