Want to start by saying that I am an alcoholic, a man who spent 22 years of his life drinking and losing it all. April of 2022, on my birthday I was kicked out of my ex’s house, I spent 36 days in rehab. Moved into a halfway house and started my recovery. During my stay there the director realized my potential as an advocate and helped guide me to be able to help other people like myself. In September of 2023 I was hired by a Recovery place and I worked as a Certified Recovery Peer Advocate (CRPA). During my stay at the halfway house, the company I worked for bought the house, I was asked to move to another facility because it would be a conflict of interest for me to stay there. AN opportunity came up for Section 8, where I was one of the few who was selected to receive a voucher for an apartment, sadly there is a time limit which they are not sure when I will receive that voucher. I moved into a recovery home owned by a different group, in that home the atmosphere was not great and I had to pay rent, which I didn’t mind doing, but the fact that it was a recovery home, it came with a lot of rules that were worse than the halfway house, still I stayed on and continued working, three months later, they ended up purchasing that house and asked me one more time to move. In the county I live its very hard to find a place for rent with the amount of money I was making. I decided and I bought a SUV with full intention of sleeping in my car, would join a gym and shower there. Well a friend of mine opened her door for me and allowed me to sleep in her basement while I wait on my voucher to become available. Last Monday, she said to me I need to move out by the end of this month (February) because her kids normally play their video games where I am now, are complaining and she does not wish to get them upset. On Tuesday I got written up at work because of Jokes me and co-workers shared, since I was the only one who was heard saying profanities. On Wednesday I was talked to again about my position to which even my supervisor stated she didn’t know what my actual position entail. I allowed my anger get the better judgement of me and drank on Thursday, well I am on this medication called Vivitrol, I was never able to be drunk but the smell of alcohol remained on me. I got to work that afternoon and I was very upset and sat in my car for a few minutes, well I passed out and my boss’s boss found me. Well I ended up losing my position at that company, and also lost the 20 months I had in to my recovery. I am in desperate need of cash, yes I have one more check coming but that’s going to the car payment and money I borrowed to put as the down payment, plus money I borrowed on the app Dave, and that’s the paycheck.
I would truly appreciate all any of you can help me with. My paypal.me is paypal.me/samsly73
