I am very embarrassed, but also not too proud to beg. I am a single mother of Two wonderful little girls, and I am sick at this moment in my life. I have been struggling for the past several months because I am unable to maintain employment due to my heart condition. In March of 2022, I went to the hospital thinking I had pneumonia or Covid, to find out that my heart was actually on operating at 15%. I have been scared for my life ever since! I have little to no support because my father who was my main supporter died in 2021, and my brother has to take care of his family. When the doctors ran my test to find out why my heart function is operating at such low levels, they could not find anything wrong with me. When asking me about my family history I told them about my dad dying and how much he was my friend and supporter. I am a daddy’s girl and I never thought at the age of 34 would I lose him. He has been my number 1 supporter for my girls and I because I am a single mother, and I was not prepared for him to die suddenly. The doctors diagnosed me with broken heart. I did not know people could actually die from a broken heart. All my doctors agreed for me sign up for disability and to rest as much as possible. Now, I have been fighting to receive Social Security Disability Benefits. The Social Security Association has denied me twice already and I have no way to get any money to take care of my girls. I am so scared right now! I have been praying for a solution because I have no way at this point in my situation to help my children nor myself. For the past year we have been living off of the insurance money my dad has left for us and that is depleted. I am currently trying to apply for scholarships so I can go to school to further my education, and I still need assistance! I did not know the process would take so long to receive benefits even with the reassurance from my doctors. Before I became ill, I was an Independent Health care provider. I was a State Tested Nursing Assistant, and I would go to my clients’ homes and take care of them! I enjoyed my job and become a provider in 2015. When I became ill, I could no longer perform my work duties as a nursing assistant home health provider. Now, I am trying to understand a new field so I can work from home or study from home to help my situation! Thank- You for taking the time to help my girls and I in our time of need! Thank-You so much for your help and prayers!!!
