OK.  I'll try to note the salient points and not make this too long.  I'm a 61 year old, only child, who is single (never married), with no significant other and a recent orphan.  My mother died on June 4th, 2016.  Unlike most of the population, there is no one left in my life that I can turn to so, thanks to technology that I couldn't have imagined in my lifetime (the internet), I'm turning to everyone else.....On The Planet.

My Hail Mary

So that's some of who I am.  Now, this is what has happened.  

The long and short of it is that I'm one of the millions of people that were casualties of the 2008-09 recession.  After being layed-off through no fault of my own, I had 2 years of unemployment compensation and I spent that 2 years looking for work every day, to no avail.  I had enough savings to last for about 2 years without work.  When I had about 6 months left I got a break and was introduced to a man that had a 5 bedroom house that he wanted an onsite, live-in manager for and I got the job.  My rent was negligible but, as life tends to be, with the good comes the bad.

My Hail Mary

Being that I have been single all of my life, not married that is, I had always been pretty healthy but I didn't do a good job of taking care of myself, it appears.  I didn't get health insurance untill Obamacare and started seeing a doctor on a regular basis.  My health was beginning to get bad and it turns out that I have a number of health issues including hypertension, GERD, gout, severe muscle cramps and borderline diabetes.  I have 12 prescriptions.  I have applied for SSID (Disability) but the process is long and I need help now.

My Hail Mary

Anyway, I said I wouldn't make this too long so here's something I wrote about a year and a half ago when it started to become clear that I could be in big trouble.  The bottom line is that I won't last a week on the street as a homeless person so this is my 'Hail Mary'.

Sincerely,

Thank You
