I could really use some "Wind beneath my wings" to help me fly again.

Many of you are used to seeing the strong woman my Mother and Grandmother raised me to be…
The past year and a half this has not been the case.

I’ve been in and out of the hospital. My husband and I have gone our separate ways. I lost a lot in the last 6 months… including the place I called home, clothing, my computer, my camera, jewelry that could never be replaced (family pieces) and other irreplaceable items. A lot of my things that didn’t disappear were thrown into a storage unit that I am also at risk of losing. I’m “home” with one of my best friends and her family, but they don’t have the financial stability to cover my expenses that have piled up, as well as their own. I am doing much better and working on getting back on my feet again, after all, the show must go on!
Right now I need $500 a month just to cover my Doctor appointments and medication. I’ve lost my insurance to cover this. My car insurance policy was also cancelled, which adds an extra burden on my friends having to take me to all of my appointments.
As I mentioned previously… my husband and I split, he lives an hour and a half away and requires us to travel the distance 1-2 times per week so that I can spend time with my son. My friends and their family have footed the bill for most of the gas required to do this.
Asking others for help is extremely difficult for me. I’m used to being the one that helps everyone else. This will at least help to put a dent in everything that needs taken care of.
Thank you in advance for your help and support.
