Moving Out!  Raising The Rent!  

As many of you know, I've been battling lupus for several years now, and for a long time was too disabled by arthritis and fatigue to work.  Now with new experimental treatment, I'm doing a lot better and I'm back to work - a huge step in the right direction!

Karen has most generously welcomed me into her home, fed me, sheltered me, paid for my medications and doctor's visits, and did everything she could to keep me alive and help me recover over the past three years.  It's time for her to have her own space back, and time for me to move out.

With the ridiculous expenses of insurance premiums and deductibles, medications and treatment, right now I'm living paycheck to paycheck, and sometimes the paycheck doesn't even stretch far enough to cover necessary meds.   Scraping together a security deposit and first month's rent for a new place is a daunting challenge, and my lupus symptoms, while much better, still slow me down quite a bit.

Karen and I would be truly grateful for your support, to help me regain my independence, and to give Karen a much-needed break from me!  Every little bit helps.  If you would prefer to contribute in the form of used furniture, housewares, or moving assistance, that would also be most welcome! 

Love to all of you wonderful generous people,


Jess
