The Story

I need help. We need help.

My health is deteriorating. My pain is becoming all consuming. My anxiety and depression are riding a steep zenith. Thoughts of suicide explode through my mind at regular intervals. (Fuck I hope this is the apogee.)

I have a job interview for a simple job next week, a simple job I’m not sure I can perform.

My pelvic floor and gastrointestinal problems seem to worsen by the day.

We are out of money. I had a panic attack and had to snag a hotel room. We’ve been many, many days in the van. We’re out of things to pawn.

We can’t afford copays for doctor’s visits, much less health insurance or therapy. We’ve managed to eat, but only because we turned our Best Buy credit card into fast food gift cards.

We need shelter. We need medical expertise. We don’t have any way to provide ourselves with these things.

(Homeless shelters are a fucking nightmare for someone with anxiety. I’m not too proud, just always afraid, always in pain.)

Olan, Sharaya, One-on-the-way, and I need your help. We’ve found the place we should be, and now have figure out how to sustain considering our new realities.

Please help us if you can.

Well, some of the donations didn't go through. 

No hard feelings. Sometimes wanting to help doesn't work out.

We're still in a tight spot. My pain, this is Eddy btw, my pain continues to degenerate. I can barely walk at this point.

Olan has caught some sort of fevery bug. Sharaya remains particularly pregnant.

We did have a wonderful respite thanks to some wonderful new friends who invited us into thier home! 

But now we're back to the van.

On top of past due insurance penalties and wells fargo showing deposits then dropping them then they show up later but only after fees. Fees. Fees.

We're 200 + dollars in the hole again... not to mention the credit cards we can't pay on...

Anyway, we coul do with a bit more shelter and any little bit could help.

Please donate directly via PayPal if you can... as we are souper overdrawn. punkrocumentary at gmail dot com.

Thanks.

Hi everyone!! Just wanted to update everyone. It shows that we reached our goal!! Unfortunately, a few payments didn't go through.

Please know that we are beyond appreciative!! I upped the goal a bit to show part of what we're lacking. :) Please continue to share this!!

Eddy's pain is getting really bad. He's still able to help, which is AMAZING, but he's in a lot of pain all the time. We're getting him to a doctor pronto. I have my next prenatal appt later today. I'll try to let everyone know how little Sprouty is doing.

I grabbed a bit of groceries at a Walgreens because they actually had the allergy medicine we use (I have been utterly miserable with horrible allergies lately). Apparently Thursday May 26th is Red Nose Day. :D They donate half of the proceeds to help a child in need. I grabbed a red nose. Olan loves it!!! I'll try to snap a picture later today of him playing with it.

Sorry there haven't been more updates.  Eddy is bad about keeping up with stuff. He's having to try different medical cocktails to try to lessen the pain (all legal, I assure you). I'll try to give more updates.

So if you could all continue to share this, we'd really appreciate it!!

And check out rednose.org and donate if you can. :) Even just $1 feeds a child. $5 gets a child antibiotics.

Thank you all!!!!
