Hey everyone, I thought it was time for an update here.
So thanks to a couple of semi-viral twitter posts over the last few weeks, my wife has had her medication money for almost a month without a problem. AND we were able to get the biggest problems with the car fixed before they got too bad.
I will be putting out another tweet thread on Friday (follow me on Twitter so you don't miss updates: twitter.com/tygerwulfe
), but as more things have developed, I need to update here.
My wife is almost out of meds again and after having to drop nearly $800 on car repairs, we're out of funds. And on top of that, our living situation with her mother is fast coming to a close. Her mother's landlords have raised the rent any time they've had to make a repair on this incredibly old house, and we've gone more than half the winter without heat, and are heading into a +100 degree summer with no air conditioning. Her mother has come to the conclusion that we have to move, and she can't find anywhere that will take everyone in the house as they are.
So the house of currently six people (my wife's mother, my wife and I, my brother-in-law and his mate, and my sister-in-law) is going to have to break up. Everyone has been able to find somewhere to go (even just on a temporary basis) except for my wife and I due to no demonstratable reliable income (donations and commissions don't count). So if we aren't careful, we're going to end up on the street in the next month or so, whenever the move comes down. Her mother is very sorry, but there's nothing she can do. She's 65, and it's most cost-effective for her to move into elderly housing, and they won't take anyone under 55 unless they have caretakers licenses, which we don't have.
Now we have a few people who are likely going to be able to help us with a down payment or first rent and moving costs, but we're really flying by the seat of our pants here...and it's terrifying. If I disappear offline, that will be why. I'll try to check in whenever I can, and I'm doing my best to finish up my current commissions before this happens.
Anyway...to help with my wife's medication, which is still the most pressing thing...it's $150 a week, or $600 a month. Even $1-$5 donations are appreciated - they add up. Whatever anyone can afford.
Thank you all for listening and being here...here's hoping for another miracle.paypal.me/tygerwolfe
