User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI would like to thank everyone who donated on my behalf! It really means a lot! Since then Ive returned to work with limited hrs, however finished physical therapy! There are times where I am sore, but I make it through! Things are still rough financially, I've just recently took my old car off the road! So I am using public transportation to and from work! So with the money that you've donated on my behalf to get me ahead with limited budget I am on is going to help. Once again thank you!

I'm on Short-Term Disability Leave & Need Help Keeping my Apartment Please!

My Story:

I'm a single woman living on my own, and I've always worked hard to take care of myself. I would say that I'm definitely an independent person, and it can be hard for me to ask for help even when I need it, but this situation is too much for me to handle on my own. I work at a grocery store, but recently I had to take time off from work due to a recent injury. I'm worried that I could be out of work for longer than expected and that I could fall significantly behind on my rent as a result.

My return to work date is at the end of this month, but I don't know if I'll be cleared entirely to go back to work. I've also filed for disability, but I don't know when or if those benefits will be approved. Being able to stay in my apartment and stay financially independent is my biggest concern right now, and I'm worried that because of this situation, I could find myself evicted and on the streets sooner or later.

Asking for help is a difficult thing for me to do, but I know that if I don't, then I could lose everything I've worked hard for; I could lose my job, my home, and control over my entire life if I don't ask for help. That's why I'm humbly asking for assistance with keeping up on my rent. I know that I can make it through this difficult time with this help, but without it, I'm afraid I could lose everything I've worked so hard for. I know how much this help would mean to me, so when I can get back to work, I promise to pay this generosity and kindness forward to someone else in the same position that I'm in right now. I know that doing my part to help someone else makes us all stronger together. Thank you all so much for your kindness and compassion during my time of need.
