I Have 4 Chronic Conditions. After Back to Back Flare Ups & Losing Work, I'll Be Homeless!

My Story:

I am a single woman employed as a postal worker, and I try to always look on the positive side of things.

I have been diagnosed with 4 separate chronic health conditions in the last 5 years. One of my conditions is HS. It causes debilitating, painful abscesses to form, and it is impossible for me to move around or do anything when they flare up. As a result, I am sometimes unable to work when this happens. I recently experienced back-to-back flares, and in combination with my other conditions, as soon as one thing faded, another problem popped up. I have essentially chronic fatigue because of how difficult it is to experience my illnesses. I lost work for a month, but I did not qualify for short-term disability. I lost an entire month's worth of pay. I'm now struggling to keep my bills paid and could lose my home soon.

I am asking for assistance with my rent, so I can get back on track after these emergencies. This assistance would give me the time I need to collect a few more paychecks, so I can stay on top of things going forward. I'm continuing to work with my doctors on managing these flares, so hopefully this does not happen again. Your help will ensure I do not end up homeless in my condition, and I will be forever thankful.
