Raised by 9 people in 16 months

Hello my name is Tim Bowman I'm a Marine Corps VETERAN..SEMPER FI.  On April 21 of 2017 I unexpectedly became HOMELESS which completely caught me off guard and stunned. Feeling BETRAYED, USED, ALONE and ABANDONED I spiraled into severe DEPRESSION and SELF LOATHING I couldn't comprehend or accept what had happened and I attempted to END my LIFE by taking copious amounts  of pills. Thankfully by GRACE of GOD I was unsuccessful and spent 2 weeks in the hospital dealing with the REALITIES of what had brought me to giving up on myself.
My story is not different than thousands of others.
I was semi retired and was set financially for the rest of my life thru my antique business. life was good. I had worked my whole life  to support myself  and be independent. Then In 2015 I suffered a STROKE which left me partially BLIND and unable to operate my antique business.  A good friend whom I trusted  offered to run my business if I intern could watch her children while she helped me out....Long story short while i was watching her children she was robbing me blind to fuel a drug habit which at the time I was unaware of,  ultimately I was  left  financially ruined and broke.
She and her husband not only ruined me financially they broke my HEART and SPIRIT as I had considered them "family". 20538936_1499821252.4784_funddescription.jpgThese 2 wrecked my life.

Due to my KINDNESS and GENEROSITY I had "lost" my home, car, and business and my most importantly my BELOVED Fur babies. My pets were my life and ended up in a shelter:(

I'm an artist crafter and entrepruner by trade. I've been working since I was 8 years old. I've had many many businesses.  
I  am a GOOD person. I always try to uplift  others. I consider myself SELFLESS . KIND, CONSIDERATE, PASSIONATE, LOVING, GIVING, person with  empathy towards others.  I see the good in others before I see the bad.

Asking for help is one of the HARDESTand most HUMBLING things I have EVER had to do.  I've always been a self sufficient and self sustaining member of society. 

Im in need of FINANCIAL assistance for basic HOUSING needs. I've nothing left but a few clothes. I wish for  a place of my own to call home .
Any help would be a great blessing to me to be able to be INDEPENDENT and on my own again.
Thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.
If you would be so kind to SHARE  MY STORY, it would help greatly.
God bless and thank you for readingyour time.
