As most of you know I had major heart surgery earlier this year which landed me on what my medical records refer to as "sedation vacation".  It was no vacation by any means.  With major organs shutting down, death was a possibility.  I believe your prayers and healing thoughts kept me alive.  However, due to the extended time sedated, intubated and bedridden my physical recovery has been unexpectedly lengthy.

I had hoped to be back to work before now but due to developing major depression building my strength and endurance was hindered.  I've had medication changes noticing an improvement with the depression.  I believe my strength is returning as I'm making changes.  Depression will suck the life out of a person, often I've felt paralyzed unable to move forward.

I've been blessed to have financial assistance from my Mom, however she can no longer help me.  The only state aid I qualify for are food stamps and occassionally energy assistance.  I also utilize Agape food pantry and Society of St Vincent dePaul food pantry at Holy Rosary.

I've been renting the house I'm in since August 2011. My rent was due October 13th and November is due tomorrow.  I desperately do not want to move.  Honestly, I have no idea what I would do if I'm evicted.  I want to get back to work.  Transportation is an issue, if it wasn't I'd go back to my job as a Private Duty Nurse. I'm using my Mom's old car which has many miles and no heater. Hopefully I'll get some sort of work here in Warrenton.

While on Facebook I came to this site fundrazr.com.  After giving much consideration, prayer and fearing humiliation, I've set this fundraiser up on my own behalf.

Many of you have said if I needed anything to let you know so...I'm asking.  Can you kindly help me prevent eviction?  I've set a goal that will get me caught up in rent, pay utilities, pay for my medications and personal care items, household and pet supplies for the next couple of months.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  Thank you for considering to help me prevent eviction and survive over the next couple of months.  Big or small, your generousity is greatly appreciated.

Much love,

Melanie
