I am a veteran who has recently had a severe suicide attempt, I was not treated, instead i got charged &I have immediate costs to cover. Also I would like to pay for school/classes for CDL (truck driving) licence, I would like some sort of a future please

 

i never thought I would ever make one of these.I was a ARMY active duty combat medic. 

I am in no way shape or form, looking for any praise, or any valor. I am in no way calling myself any kind of hero.

I simply want a chance at a future. I was going for my masters degree and am 1 semester away from finishing but I had a suicide attempt, an attempt at which I was not treated for..( I got into "trouble"  * so to speak , for it instead of treated) , and now I need representation that I cannot afford,  (first part of it due by November 9th 2017). 

I was a homeless veteran in 2012, I had to do whatever I could to survive, I had nowhere to go I was in NYC, I was stuck/stranded in the rain with nothing but a backpack and a laptop, i used starbucks wifi, and began posting ads for massage just so I would have subway fair, and money to eat..and even that got me into trouble that has taken me 5 years to be able to erase. 

JOB
I would love nothing more than a full time career, that I am able to get back and forth to. I am not able to stand up for more than 15 minutes, due to a major operation on my leg/knee, and removal of my cartilage. 
I can take any job that is sitting down, that I am able to be transported to. 

The current situation I am in, is making my almost completed masters degree online go down the toilet, I will never get hired. 

I would like to take CDL (truck driving) classes fro a CDL license, i can sit down (with my left leg the way it is) and it is something I would love doing. I would need transportation to and from, which wouold be included in any funds raised. 

I currently dont have health insurance and I was denied food stamps for not being able to provide "a letter stating disability". According to my orthopedist, he moved from UPMC health network, to Allegheny health network, that being said my records are no longer with him,  and I need a referral from a Primary Care Physician in which I do NOT have. and to go back to the original office, I still have to be "seen", which requires insurance, or payment, none of which do I have 

I am open to food banks, but I currently dont have ID, or anyone to bring me to and from a food bank, but that would be a great idea if I can somehow find one that delivers or doesnt require ID.

My life is a mess right  now, and I can rather cave in, or I can fight. I hate to make this page but it will change someones life.
