I turned 56 years young on July 4th. I a single disabled mother caring for my adult son

I turned 56 years young on July 4th. I am a single disabled mother caring for my adult son that have severe autism. I try to live on a very fixed income which is hard to do. I suffered a heart attack. have rheumatoid arthritis, Kidney issues, as well as other health issues. The engine went dead in my car. It was an old car, but it got me and my son back and forth to the many doctors appointments that we have monthly. Since the engine died in my car, We have missed many important appointments. I need to get to my Cardiologist for my heart. I need to get to my rheumatologist. I need help with some funds to either buy a used vehicle, or the down payment on a vehicle. I live in a small town that have no public transportation. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You !

My dear,

I wish that was in a place to be able to help you but at this moment I can barely help myself. Please keep your head up and continue to be strong. I know that at times like this, you do not want to hear a whole lot of talk from someone who can not help with your needs but I just wanted to say that I have been where you are now. My husband walked away from me when I was just 20 years old leaving me with three children to care for on my own and my baby was disabled. My husband never looked back. It's as if he just disappeared from the face of the earth. I sometimes worked two low paying jobs just to keep food on the table and a roof over my children's head. Oh life was so hard. My beautiful children became accustomed to knowing that there would be nothing under the tree for Christmas. Hek,There wouldn't even be a tree because I just could not squeeze out another dollar to buy a tree. I felt so abandon and alone. I felt as if I failed my children but my children never complained because they knew that I was doing the best that I could do. I know that they wanted to have a Christmas just like everyone else but food,  electricity ,water ,shoes and a roof over our heads was more important than toys. I pray that someone will be able to do something to help you to have a Christmas for your beautiful child. I wouldn't want you to feel the way that I did as I looked into my children's eyes on Christmas morning and saw the sadness there. I don't know how I ever got through those times but I did. Single parenthood is tough but hang in there and things will get better I promise.
