I am an EMT, a prior firefighter, and a mom of 3 kids. While at work 1 day, I came down with a terrible headache and couldn’t see straight or even talk right. I went to the hospital and later that night found out I have a brain aneurysm. That was over 6 months ago. I am fighting to receive ANY benefits from my employer (even 50% of my pay like I’m supposed to). My family already lost a vehicle due to nonpayment, and now will be without a house in a few weeks. I went to court and have a judgement to pay $8500 or be evicted. I know that is a lot of money, but I would have nowhere to go! Because I am technically employed, DHS won't help and I don't qualify for other agencies help. I fall right in a loophole that no one can help me, and I am not getting paid.
I am used to being the one helping others, but I have now learned sometimes you have to put your pride aside, and ask your brothers/sisters for help. I CANNOT lose my home, especially around Christmas, and I am praying there is help for me out there in my time of need. My kids want to know if Santa will still come and it breaks my heart. Thank you.
