Coming To Realizations
Wanted to say hi to everyone and thanks for this opportunity to make a change in our lives. Our names are Dan and Rhett. We have been together since 2009. When we met, Dan was laying carpet for a company and I was working in the grocery business. I had raised my two girls own, living basically paycheck to paycheck just barely getting by when they were younger.
I had worked 23 years for one company, when I got hurt on the job. I had 5 knee surgeries in a two year span and finally in 2011, I had to get a total knee replacement. After a lot of therapy, I finally got to join the workforce once again. Sad to say, I got hurt again. This time the other knee. Now I have had each knee replaced, and things aren't as easy to do as they were.....like walking, standing, or getting up from the floor.
Dan, on the other hand has had to have both shoulders operated on. He is no longer to do the work he was doing and has been there helping as much as he could.
In 2013, we were told by the doctors that my youngest daughter had non-hodgkins lymphoma. Dan quit his job to take care of her, making sure she made it to her appointments etc while I worked. The hard part of this was when were told that there was nothing else they could do for her. That was quite a shock to the system. We lost our daughter at the age of 24 in 2014.
So everything hit all at once. I went into deep depression I am now on disability and we are barely getting by.
We want to thank you for this opportunity to learn something new and make some money while doing it. We don't have to get rich, just want to be comfortable and be able to enjoy life.
