I am just going through a really rough time right now. I have an 18 month old son, another on the way. I have been diagnosed with severe migraines and Lupus. I’m a disabled American Veteran from the U.S. Army, and I’ve fought so hard to keep my life going. I’ve worked since I was 16 years old, always a full-time job, working hard, paying my taxes, doing everything right. And still, this came to be a part of my life. I’m not on medication yet, most meds are dangerous for pregnancy.
I’m only working part-time at home now to take care of my son, save money, and keep my flares down.
My car broke down 3 weeks ago, it’s a 1500 dollar repair AND I still owe 4200 on it. I left it in Reno because my stepdad I was living with is a violent alcoholic and I couldn’t be around him anymore.
Everything in my life has turned upside down. I considered suicide. I’m too sick to work 50 hour weeks now. I need help so bad and I feel like because of my illness, I’m not a good enough mom because I can’t work like I used to anymore.
I just really need help getting things taken care of so I can get back up for my children. Anything helps! Thank you so much.
