Where to start? I’ve had a series of misfortunate events. Leaving me with no money, rough living conditions, physical pain, and almost hopeless at this point. It all started with a hail storm. I’m living in a camper in a driveway in Colorado that has no way to heat up, cool off, or keep me out of the wind and rain. One afternoon a hail storm come through that left me wet to say the lest. I’m seating there and the next thing I know im being covered in water in the bed I’m relaxing in. The hail did a number on the sky light/vents, leaving them shattered or completely missing. The camper literally had water running down the inside of the walls for several hours as I recall. The camper was not a total lost; so I decided to to repair the damage….
During the time of repairs; I was not able to stay in the camper, so I have been doing everything from staying with friends to renting motels. At this point; past the camper, life as far as stress level and money was ok. I had to pick up as much possible over time at work to cover the additional cast of the repairs and the renting of rooms. Around about the two week mark of this ordeal I was unfortunately let go from my job. I had only been at my job for about two months. The job itself had a 90 day probationary period. That allowed them to give me no reason why I was let go other then I was over qualified for the job. To top things off there was no way to collect unemployment as well. This is when the snowball started rolling down hill…
I need to make a side note. I am a machanic by trade and a handyman (if you will) by night. lol! I’m mentioning this because I am the one doing the repairs/fixing the camper.
So no job and no fixed camper at this point. Due to overtime that’s i was working, I was only able to work a couple hours a night after work; about 2-3 nights a week. I was able to at least cover the vents with plexiglass to at least keep some of the wind and there rain out. But I have not been able to do anything else repair wise cause I am not able to pay for the 3 vent and 2 skylights.
To top everything off 2 weeks ago I was out working on the camper eating some food in the midst of working when my back molar in my mouth cracked in half. I have not been able to even see a dentists at this point sense I have no insurance. It’s still pretty sensitive and it’s very hard to eat. When eating food, particals of food will get lodged in between my gum and the broken part of the molar causing swelling and pain. I have no idea if the tooth can be saved or if I need to pull it… My stress level is helping out zero in my situation.
I don’t know what else I can do at this point past asking for help. Any help with any of my issues will be more then appreciated.
I thank you for taking the time to read this. I will pay it forward to others just as you guys may do for me when I get back on my feet. Anything will help.
Peace and love
