My name is Todd. I am a 52 year old recently unemployed Male. I suffer from major depression and generalized anxiety.
I was diagnosed in 2013. I missed some work while I’ll and seeking therapy in both 2013 and 2014. I recovered a great deal in 2015 only to have my wife leave me in April of that year. My three sons live with her.
My mental disorder took hold again and I missed a great deal of work in 2016. I attempted suicide that year. At the end of 2016 into early 2017 I realized I could no longer afford child support and my bills had accumulated to the point that I was forced to file a consumer proposal to deal with my debts. That is still in negotiation.
I maintained hope that when I was ready to return to work I would be able to catch up somewhat and get some breathing room. Unfortunately, due to the amount of sick leave I used since 2013, my employer terminated my employment last month.
I have employment insurance but it does not cover my monthly debts. I’ve been looking for work but there isnt much out there for a 52 year old, fired guy with a mental disorder.
It breaks my heart to ask for money from strangers but I am desperate. It will soon lose my home because I cant Pay to keep a roof over my head.
I need money to help me get back on my feet. I can beat the depression but right now I’m taking the beating.
I could open a one man, residential demolition company if I had the means. There seems to be a market in this area. That’s a pipedream at the moment.
Please. Anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated. If I could reach $20,000 I would have the breathing room to break this trend and start to live again with passion.
Thank you so much
