I’m using hang up to share my story and my struggles and to hopefully get some help to get back on my feet. I am beside myself that I can’t be with all my children because the shelter only houses so many.
I am a 42 year old woman, I was born in Detroit, MI. Before I was homeless we were staying in East pointe, MI. I was working at a home health care facility, I was the manager until I fell ill and was unable to work. Things fell apart after I had to quit my job, thankfully I am feeling better and am able to work now. My plan is to look for a job once I find housing.
I had a stroke because of a blood clot and I was sick for a longtime. I haven’t been able to work and that put me behind in my and made it hard to take care of my children.
Moving forward, my goal is to get a job and get enough money for a security deposit and that will allow me to get a house and become more stable.
What makes me happiest is seeing my kids happy, I am happy to be alive after being so sick
