This is my last option. Obviously I am a single mom, hence the category. I am divorced now with 3 kids. We live in a small 2 bedroom condo and I have always worked 2 jobs to take care of my family.
About 10 years ago, I developed Rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia along with multiple other things like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Sjogren Disease among other things. Anyway, those things never stopped my from taking care of things, until recently. The longer I have these incurable auto immune diseases the worst my condition gets. I am not at the stage where I qualify for disability because I am able to function about 3 to 4 days a week with minimum flare ups and pain. Unfortunately, I have been “released” from 2 jobs now because of the days I am unable to walk or use a limp do to a severe weekly flare up. I currently have a job I am able to work 22 to 28 hours a week, most weeks anyhow. This unfortunately is considerably many hours less than I used to work and need to work to keep up with my utilities and rent. I am asking for help to get me and my kids through the next couple of months so our electric and water will not be shut off.
My long term plan is to find work that is more of a seditary job and hopefully one that I am able to work from home on the days I am unable to walk. I am currently on 22 pills a day and weeks shots. Waiting on insurance to approve an infusion procedure, that is my last medical option to be able to physically be functional and will eliminate some flare ups and some of my prescriptions.
I am not only accepting money donations but also any suggestions of work ideas or words of encouragement.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, it means a lot to me that you took the time.
