Three weeks before I was to return to teaching from Summer Break, I
went in for what I though would be a routine visit. By the end of
the visit, I found out I could not return to work and would have to
have three surgeries.
Now, after a full month of no income, short term disability has
still not started. I grow weaker each day and the struggle seems,
at times, unbearable.
I used to pride myself on having been the one, for so many years,
to help others. It is so very painful, as I type this to be the one
to have to reach out in need.
If not for my two beautiful little boys, I would not reach out.
They have their best friend, Leia (Yes...they named her after
Princess Leia on Star Wars), our little dog that I don't think I am
able to keep any longer...she is another mouth to feed. I am
heartbroken that this has happened, but faithful!
Since I can not work, I am unable to apply for unemployment.
Disability keeps telling me they are still processing
paperwork....after a month. I can no longer afford medication,
therapy or the last two surgeries I will need.
Your prayers and any help you may provide will have a lasting
impact on the two little ones I fight for each day!
Blessings to you that even take the time to read this and place
them in your thoughts!
