I have a dear friend with a real need.  First let me say this was very hard for MICHELLE PATOPEA TROTT to let me do this. She is usually raising money for some good cause, primarily folks in Haiti, through her church.   She has given  so much of herself to others. Now she is needy.
10 Years ago Michelle contracted Lyme Disease.  It was undiagnosed for 5 years and they were  just treating the symptoms.  She was properly diagnosed in 2014 but even with treatment she still suffers from fatigue, muscle weakness, wide spread inflammation and soreness, anxiety,  foggy brain and depression.    Michelle has been self employed in the computer repair business but that has not proven enough income to support herself. Because of the Lyme Disease she was struggling to make ends meet.  She wasn't able to to keep full time hours. She has applied for Social Security Disability but it has not 
yet been approved.
For a few months Michelle has had severe shoulder and arm pain. She has torn 4 tendons, torn rotator cuff and bone spur in one shoulder and the same plus a separation in the other.  This causes her extreme pain daily.  She is unable to do most daily tasks. She is undergoing surgery on one shoulder Tuesday, Jan 8, 2019 in Seaside and the other surgery later.  She may not be able to keep her computer business going for awhile because of the surgeries plus the Lyme Disease.  
I'm asking for rent, utilities, food and car insurance for 2 months for  Hopefully her disability insurance will come through by then.
Whether you can give or not , Michelle will always welcome prayers. Thanks.

Hi loves, As I begin PT exercises I find it is hard. Please pray for ease and wisdom with my movement.
My heart and soul appreciates all the support.

I am doing a puzzle. I also took a job this week so I am learning to click left/weak handed. It is humorous and slow. I feel useful! I am also spending time in the word studying in my concordance Bible that was given to me 16 years ago. I learned some new things yesterday. God doesn’t want me to worry about yesterday or tomorrow-he only wants me to worry about my situation once. Make plans to carry on and live in Faith. Interesting philosophy Joshua 1:5-9
Love you all-Michelle

Hi there supporters loved ones and friends everywhere!
I just had my first PT and everything looks good! I haven’t ruined it yet!
She said up to 6 weeks in the sling and at 12 weeks I can be cut loose most likely. Looks like this is a slow gentle rehab as opposed to some of the aggressive ones I’ve seen other people do. I must be gentle on it.
My heart and soul appreciates everybody’s support and always. Please pray my recovery goes smooth and as quick as possible I need this arm to be strong so I can get onto the next one. It’s really hard to open any kind of lid.
Peace and love to you all on this glorious day may God be blessing you every moment. Michelle
