Need Help To Survive. I have Multiple Sclerosis and My Husband Has Had a Major Stroke. He Gets Lost Going Down The Street.
We have spent our entire lives helping people financially, physically, and emotionally. We have always given to a great many charities, shelters, food drives, toys for tots, help for holiday dinners, both financially, and with our time each Thanksgiving, etc. However, now that we are elderly, there is nobody able to help us. We are both suffering severe depression as a result. We have never asked for help before, but we find ourselves in a situation with no other choice. The people we have opened our home to through the years are either not in a position to reciprocate or deceased. We have so many medical bills left over after our insurance made payments that without additional help we will soon be homeless. We have sold everything we have that we don’t HAVE to have to live. Yet, we still can’t make the household expenses. We go without meals, and keep the heat off in the winter. We eat twice daily every other day, and once daily every other day, and our meals consist of peanut butter, canned food, and junk food, as that is easiest to afford. We go to bed early to avoid feeling hungry. We have water because we have a well. We avoid going to see a doctor as the co-pay is unaffordable right now. The reason we have not asked for help before this is our fear of being a burden. However the Bible has assured us that we do not need to feel that way. Also, when the tables were turned, we were sincerely happy to help, and would give graciously if the tables were ever turned again. We need $4,500.00 to get on our feet and start being able to use the heat, get fans for the summer, and have some decent meals. We are not too proud at this point to beg for help. It is hard to ask for peoples generosity without shame. However, we have learned that giving and taking are essential for survival in this world to have positive cultures. We have asked God to strengthen our courage. We pray every day that people with a heart with reach out and help those less fortunate as we have done our entire lives. Please accept our sincere gratitude for your help during our family crisis. We are full of gratitude! God Bless those in a huge way that help us! We want to express heartfelt thanks. THANK YOU WITH ALL OUR HEARTS FOR YOUR ANTICIPATED KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY!
