I am a 50 yr old woman. In breast cancer remission for 7 yrs. I was forced of my home just after my diagnosis. Being single, of course I had to pick up a couple extra jobs just to find a one bedroom. After 2 yr of working 13-15 hrs a day, I started developing more health issues. I knew about the arthritis in my knee, but now I have degenerative disc disease and multiple level scoliosis. This is an uphill fight with workers comp and I am not eligible for disability. I have had to borrow and withdrawal from my profit sharing for over 7 years now. I have also exhausted support from family and friends. It appears I use too much water and electricity. My pay has consistently gone down over the last 10 years. I am also looking at being "let go" from my employer of over 20 years because they have no job to accommodate my perm restrictions. To me, I am not even living pay check to pay check because I am always overdrawn. I also can't even make minimum payments so I will never see any bills PAID. My friend has been allowing me to stay in her condo, but she is getting very upset that I cannot help her enough with rent. How can I save myself from being homeless without taking on another job? Who would even hire me with my health issues?? And schooling will not help me. I could sure use a little push in the right direction. I know there is a solution but I can't find it beyond the massive hole (financially and physically) I am in. I suppose it could be worse. This hole could be filled with water and I'd have to tread water too.
