Help Emily survive and find housing
I’m a chronically ill and disabled woman who has lost her housing and everything else to toxic mold. I currently have zero income and am struggling just to survive. I’m currently in temporary housing that is not mold free or allergen free enough for me to make any progress with my health. I also feel bad for not being able to contribute to the household. I have multiple chemical sensitivity and am exposed to many allergens as well as mold. I was not able to physically handle being on the streets due to myopathy and dysautonomia, which cause muscle wasting, weakness, and problems with temperature control and blood pressure, causing exercise intolerance. My illnesses progressed from being homeless. There is currently no emergency housing available. I just got my medicaid approved through the expansion and need further medical documentation before trying to reapply for disability again. I don’t even own a winter coat. I’m raising funds to get some warm clothing, pay for extra food costs(I do receive foodstamps but with a special diet, they don’t last the whole month), pay for monthly medication costs, toiletries, and eventually raise enough to stay at mold free enough air bnb or roommate situation until I get into housing through HUD or section 8. I am very sick and non-functional and completely unable to work. Anything helps, God bless.
