Hello My name is Patricia I am 59 of age and have worked since I was 15 of age. I am a single mother of three all grown and living there own lives, I am a grandmother and a pet owner. My circumstances started two years ago while I was employed with a great paying job I started having bad back pain over the months it got worse to where I could barely walk 5 steps without falling to my knees in pain . I took a leave from my job and after 3 months of never ending pain my insurance approved me for lower back surgery, My hopes were high and looking forward to a 100% out come after surgery. Nothing has been more disappointing after my surgery and recovering I was still having back pain not has bad as before surgery but pain more the same meaning I was not a 100% a lot of nerve damage well by this time I lost my job and no longer had health insurance . My doctor told me I might want to look into Disability being that I was limited on my activities so I did and still after two year jumping through hoops I am still waiting on the out come from my hearing . I am embarrassed and not comfortable to be asking for help but I have sold all that I could to get by the past 2 years and my children and family are not well off to help me . I need help to pay my vehicle insurance, Vehicle taxes and renewing tags to keep my vehicle on the road and my vehicle needs a oil change and two front tires to pass inspection which is due soon. I cant borrow the money as getting a loan because I cant work and have now way to pay on a loan. I try to help myself every way I can like I said selling things I can do without and when I have materials I like painting on wooden pallets and selling them to get by. I really don’t put much faith in excepting any stranger to want to help out someone they don’t know but I was lead here to make my peace and believe in hope . My past two years have been rough back surgery loss of employment and loss my best friend my Pom of 9 years.
May God Bless You
