I have been a Registered Nurse for over twenty years. I have always had very stressful positions and have enjoyed being able to help people in crisis situations. I have been thinking about writing for several years and have spoken to my family about for years. All believe I would be successful and they look forward to reading what I will write. I put those dreams on the back burner and life got in the way so I never started.
In 2015, during a particularly hard time in my life, I came home to visit my mother and father. While here my mother died unexpectedly in the house and I was unable to reach her to provide emergency care. I was later diagnosed with PTSD and entered a very profound depression. I stayed with my father, who is elderly so he would not be alone. Eight months after her death I did return to work for five months, however; I found the voice in my heart speaking louder than ever about how I should be writing and helping people through my writing. I took a leap of faith, the first in my life, quit my job and moved back in with my father who had been complaining he was too lonely. I figured I could kill two birds with one stone. Unfortunately, I had a lot more mourning to do. I did not get any writing done. I have had ideas that I write down and titles that keep coming to me as well as great new story ideas but it was not until recently that I began to feel like myself again. I feel ready to write every day and have my first book planned. So why do I need help?
My father has decided to move into a home. He is selling the house which leaves me without a place to stay. I have not worked in a year and a half and have debt. I need financial help to pay off bills, get a small apartment, be able to eat while I write my first book and hopefully get it published.
My friends and some patients have called me an earth angel because I have always helped people. I make it my business to go above and beyond and give until it hurts. I ask God to use me where he needs me and I believe this is the best part of life, spreading love and light in a world of darkness. My mother used to say I was generous to a fault but I never it saw it that way. I believe it is important to help people when you can because a day may come when you need help and hopefully someone will help you.
I have been praying, being optimistic, and believing that my dreams can come true. I keep asking for continued abundance and really not knowing where it will come from and then I came across this site. I am not used to asking for help and don’t. This is really important to me though and I’m praying that someone can help.
If you can only afford to help one person, please help someone with small children or medical problems or something so much more important than my dreams. May light and love follow you always my friends.
Thank you for your time.
