Helps us not be homeless!
Organized by: susannah franklin
As much as I do NOT like putting my business into the street, I am desperate! If not money, maybe a good running donated car? November 2014: decided to move from Alabama because I could not find a job within an hour of mine and Moms house. Started a job in Smyrna (Nashville) at $12.00 and hour. Traveled 4 of the 6 days, two hours each way, stayed in hotels 2. Working 12 hour shifts, packing the house as my Mom is an invalid. December 2014 Found a place to live and started the moving process. Still the same schedule as Nov. Mom’s sister (landlord) changed the locks on the house in mid move. She stole priceless items to Mom. No eviction notice. NO RENT DUE, either. Deposits and all paid through Jan 2015. Jan 2015: I got very sick. It turned out to be pneumonia. I was fired from that job for no reason given. I'm assuming it was because of the 2 days out sick? Mom got double pneumonia and was hospitalized, then put into rehab for a six week period. She was not physically or mentally ready, but I couldn’t tell her NO! I was newly employed at the Nissan plant, making a great deal of income. Within 6 days of Mom coming home she fell and broke L4 and L5 on her back. I was forced to resign that position and stay home after reb again for her. April 2015: I was hospitalized for a Brown Recluse bite for 7 days. $25,270.14 for the hospital stay and other bills put this at around $34,000.00 total. While all of this was going on, I failed to make a car payment. While I attempted to catch up with an extra $50.00 - $100.00 as agreed to by GMAC, the car was repossessed on June 26th, the day after Mom had surgery on her back. August 11, 2015, I used my rent money to buy a car from craigs list for $900.00. That car lasted 2 weeks, 6 days, then died. The repair was to cost $3000.00 for transmission. I was back to paying the ONE cab company here, $12.00 per trip to go to another job I acquired in between are of Mom and sleep! I was given a deal of $130.00 a week for the cab. I did this until a coworker offered to take me back and forth. Sept 2015: Mom fell again and broke her hip. She refused to go to the hospital, so again, I had to quit my job and help her literally 24/7. 9 days after, I made her go. October 9 2015: Mom had her surgery and she is now in another rehab. Oct 27 2015: Took the cab $56.00 and Went to orientation for new job. Started the next day. October 29 2015: Cab did not pick me up for scheduled and daily ride to and from work. I am now unemployed, again. I have no way to get TO a job, but am being called for gainful employment. We live off of Moms SS, a stipend from Dad’s military days and my weekly checks. Around $2900.00 per month. I would move, but cant afford the movers, or all of the deposits involved with getting a new cheaper place.
