Coming Clean About My Absence…My Family Has Been Struggling And Is In Need.. Hardest Post To Post

I know many have wondered where in the hell I have been… Well yes I have battled grief and yes I have had issues going online but I haven’t shared it all.
I have went through way more than grief, I have been fighting for my ability to take care of my children and to get the medical treatment for my family. Long story short, we have lost most of our income and medical benefits.

We went weeks without electricity, had to cut back like barely nothing on food for kids to have it and we have went without medical supplies and medications.

I have been battling seizures without my medicine and haven’t been able to caretaker my son’s father who has a brain injury and can’t remember 20 mins ago or long term. My child’s mother has been battling renal failure with no way to go to the doctor and my other son’s father has no insulin. I know that’s a lo but we are four disabled people who work together to give our kids as much as love as possible.

I hate and I am scared about writing this post because it’s so hard for me to swallow my pride but we have tried every agency and every resource possible. Thanks to the one friend I asked advice from Kim @ By Hook or By Hook I was able to get an emergency food resource for the week but since we are facing eviction and are we need some medications to live we are asking for the bare minimum to help us out, enough for rent and meds. I know that many might be having their own struggles and please don’t feel bad if you can’t help and I don’t want anyone to go without because of me. Your kindness, prayers and/or vibes mean the world to me and are just as important!💜 You can find the link to the fundraiser @

Thank you for taking out the time for reading my post and if anything I may have said wrong I apologize my brain has been a little scrambled from lack of meds and sleep from stress. I can’t thank you enough for your support of Touch My Spine Book Reviews

  1. So sorry to hear about these overwhelming issues, Dani. Small wonder you are at the end of your tether, and finding it very hard to get by. Unfortunately, I am on a retirement pension, and my wife hasn’t been able to find a job since she was laid off from the bank in January. She is too young to get her pension, so we are living on what I get.
    Fingers crossed that I might have a win on the lottery or something, as I would love to be able to help you.
    Best wishes as always, Pete. xx

      • Oh honey, don’t apologize! You’re going through a rough time and there’s nothing wrong with being emotional OR asking for help! Everyone needs some help sometimes and its honestly such a show of strength to be able to ask for it because it’s not an easy thing to do! Just try to keep busy or distracted so you don’t worry and stress about it too much and make sure you look after yourself! ❤❤❤❤

  4. Dani, I’m truly sorry you’re going through this. Thank you for sharing these things with so many caring people. I know it’s hard to reveal such things. I know where you are coming from for I have walked in your shoes. I will keep you in my prayers.


  5. Dani, no matter what state you live in, there are great non-profits out there who can help. Grants for moms is one. Catholic Charities is another. I am so very sorry you are in dire straits and pray you find relief soon.

    • Thanks for the info Cindy. I have been calling around and a lot of them go based on what area and I have found a couple close ro me but they said they didn’t have any funds right now or a lot of them stated I needed to be a single mom living alone. Another problem is that I am living in the middle of nowhere and we have no vehicle because its broke down or anyone to take us anywhere at the moment. So it kept being a vicious cycle. Because the ultilities were not in name because of my credit they couldn’t help me. It’s just been pretty difficult we have found a few places to help and one of them helped with food. Our applications for State services has been a disaster as well. I am continuing to look though. Thank you so much for the info and well wishes.

          • You’re a wonderful person and it was a joy to me to be able to help you and your family with my donation. I’ve found that happiness really does come with helping others, and I’m just thankful I was able to be there for you. You’ve been through so much that you need peace and all good things!! I’m so glad too, my friend! Thank you! It’s been a little crazy, ha! My hubby and I were on an anniversary vacation until Sunday and came home to some family drama…nothing that can’t be handled but omg!! I should have stayed on vacation lol!!! I’ll have to send you a DM on Twitter or email, lol. You are more than welcome! 💖


  15. Reblogged this on and commented:
    I first read this post thanks to a repost from another blogger, and simply had to share it on my own site. It may be hard for many of us to imagine that there are people in dire need in our own backyards, but we are truly surrounded by those less fortunate souls. I’m sure Dani will be grateful for all the prayers and donations we can offer her and her loved ones in this time of need.
