I have lost just about everything. After a year long nightmare of dealing with job losses, my son begging not to have to live with us and finally being evicted from our home, my husband attempted suicide last week. We had hoped that once he was out of the hospital, he could stay with his family for a while so that I could find a good halfway house for him, get my own self a job and a small apartment so I could save for when he was better to have a place for both of us to live and try to start over. However, his family refused to let him come home. They do not want to help with him in anyway, financially or other wise. And because of our financial situation, we can't stay where we are because we can't pay the rent or utilities. I managed to get a good job, but if I can't get a place to live I won't be able to take it because part of the job requires that I have internet. Also because I can't go to work during the day and leave him on the streets. He's already extremely depressed and I am afraid he will end up dead. I've sold everything I could and am still trying to sell more before we finally have to be out in three days, but it wasn't enough to secure the apartment and get him into some kind of halfway house or transitional living facility so he can get the help he needs to recover and learn how to cope with his illness. I am scared and I need help. I've had to do a few fundraisers over the past year to just get by and I hate having to stoop to beg, but I really don't know what else to do. If I cannot raise cash within the next two days, we're going to be sleeping in my car.
