HELLO....I am a mother of 2 kids. I had a 3rd child, a 3-year-old little boy, but he died of an illness contracted from daycare. Their father was murdered at the Hyatt Hotel when he went to an out of town football game. He was shot in the head during a robbery, so now I am on my own. To say my situation is desperate is an understatement. I used to have a great job for a vet. I wasn't rich but I didn't have to struggle to eat. I was diagnosed with a medical condition called pseudotumor, which is a condition that causes an increase of spinal fluid to build up in my skull and around my brain. I have severe headaches and from time to time, from the fluid pressing against my optic nerve, I lose my eyesight temporarily. I have not been able to work due to this illness. I can't even afford to go to the doctor anymore because I don't have insurance. Well, when you don't work, you can't get paid. I have sold every piece of jewelry I own, electronics, or anything of value which could bring in a few bucks. Pawning, yard sales, and mowing grass for the neighbors has kept me in my home thus far, but I have nothing left to sell. My kids were so hungry tonight and I was so desperate. I went to some of the nicer restaurants close by and waited until they put some of the uneaten food out in the trash. I gathered up as much as I could that was on top and took it home. I put it on plates and my kids were so excited. They thought I had gone to the restaurant and gotten dinner. I know there are a lot of people out there who need so much help, but I am begging anyone out there who is able...please, please, anything you can do will be so appreciated and I thank you more than you know. This story is not fabricated or embellished-these are the actual facts of my life and I am so ashamed. I just want my kids to be okay and I know any parents out there know what it feels like to want so desperately to be able to take care of your kids. Thank you. And thank you to my neighbor for letting me use her computer to find these sights. Everyone has been so kind.
