Frequent readers of my blog here and my posts on various lists know that in March 2010 my life went seriously haywire. Initially diagnosed as a blood clot in the left leg and later diagnosed as untreatable sciatica, whatever is really wrong with me has spread into my arms and hands. I live in constant horrendous pain, have very limited mobility, frequently fall even with the use of a cane, and other issues. I lost my job last year, got sued by the only creditor who refused to work with me, CITIBANK and their third party collection attorneys ALLEN ADKINS & ASSOCIATES (court date May 16, 2011 at 9:30 in Precinct Four J.P. Court), filed for social security disability and food stamps, lost my COBRA insurance and numerous other problems including pretty much destroying my ability to write. Much of what I now write in terms of reviews and blog material is actually dictated to my teenage son, Scott, who types it in for me.
It has taken a huge toll not only on me but on the family. I am sure it played a major role in my wife’s heart attack and strokes late last April. I know it has played a huge role in her recent health setback which has resulted in lost work, new medical expenses for her, and other issues.
All this leads up to my point today---I am begging for your help to pay my rent. No matter how many ways we look at it, the numbers don’t change. We are going to be short about $350.00 bucks for the rent due May 1—assuming something else does not catastrophically go wrong in the meantime making things worse. If we are short the rent due on May 1, the fact that we have lived here since 1987 really won’t matter as they go to court quick for non-payment and get folks evicted fast. Can’t say I blame them but it does not bode well for us. The one homeless shelter in Collin County where we live is beyond its capacity which means we can’t go there.
I honestly don’t know what we would do or where we would go.
So, I am begging for your help. Any amount is much, much appreciated and it all helps. Please know that I don’t ask for your help lightly. I am humiliated and very upset about all of this. I am 49 years old and never thought I would find myself in these kinds of straits.
But, I am. We are. I, as well as the family, truly need your help.
