6 Year Navy Vet Needs Your Help
I am a recently honorably discharged Veteran. I served 6 years in the Navy as a helicopter mechanic, and was so very excited to get out. I have a dog who I like to play with and take on puppy walks. I also have a great time visiting with my mother since I am close to her after years of being away from home. I work part time at an ice cream shop.
I have had an increasingly difficult time functioning in day to day life in the civilian world. I have chronic back and hip pain, I was so stressed that I was crying in public constantly, couldn't sit still, couldn't even read because I was in so much pain, had to quit my classes. I had a series of events happen that devastated my pay for the last 3 weeks. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and physical reactions to stress, I am currently working with the VA in an Intensive Outpatient Program. I need Modest Need so help pay a utility bill. If I don't get assistance I will be struggling and scraping by to even buy groceries next month. I need a one time grant so that I can get back on my feet and reset back in the civilian world, the change has not been an easy one for me.
The funding will bring down my stress levels. I want to work more but my disabilities prevent me from working at at right now. This will help me because I am in the process of getting my disability in creased due to my inability to talk and communicate effectively. I would love to know that I had the support of such a giving and honorable organization. The help will really inspire me to assist others in my community and to donate when I am no longer in hard times.
