I am really going out on a limb with this post. Please understand as you read this, the difficulty and courage it takes for me to make a post like this.
1 year ago, I suffered a head injury from an innocent fall in my home. The day that happened, my entire world got turned upside down. From the head injury I incurred, I now endure seizures several times per week, have audio processing disorder, vision issues that make reading and posting like this hell, and a number of other issues ranging from cognitive to mental health problems.
Due to this injury, I got transferred in my job, and took an approximate $1000 per month loss in pay. That all occurred in just the first couple months of the injury.
Because of the vision and cognition issues that I have endured, my hobby that I love (android development) has come to a screeching halt. I am sure that most of you follow me due to this hobby, and maybe some of you have even seen my decreased involvement in CM, and android in general.
Over the past 12 months, I have learned the "new" me, and gone through several treatments, and therapies to try and improve my "normal" everyday life. I have spent month after month, trying to keep everything together doing what I can in every situation.
After all this time, of piecing every day, of every month together, I have ran out of options. I have sold extra devices, had several garage sales, and trimmed every bill down to a bare need and minimum. It was working until a couple months ago my account got drained by fraudulent charges. I was able to get the money back, but the wake of collateral damage it caused has caught up to me. This has my play/wallet account deactivated, and I am unable to do anything but email and google plus with it. I had several automatic bill payments that failed, which all compounded, and the time for the investigation to occur did not help.
I am lucky because of my current employment I have free health care, but at the same time I am locked into contractual obligations that make seeking other sources of income not possible at this time. I am hanging by a thread, and thats where this post is coming from.
I have a wife and 6 amazing children that I want to take care of. My current seizure disorder prevents my wife from seeking employment, because I need constant supervision to avoid further injury.
I need some help getting my head back above water, and getting some past due payments made up, as well as a couple bucks back into savings.
If anyone reading this, can spare anything, and I mean anything, you have no idea what difference you can and will make in my life. There is no frivolousness here, this is to put food on the table, as well as set us up better for even more changes that will be incoming. The biggest being my contract is under review to determine if I can contribute with my medical conditions. The review is not complete, but I know that my seizures alone with not pass the expectations of the review board. In a short period of time I will no longer have employment. I am taking steps for other assistance through disability outlets etc, but that all takes time due to my current employment.
Again, this has taken so much out of me to make public, but I will make sure my kids eat, and stay warm and dry. I am swallowing my pride for them.
