Wow - it's been nearly two years since my last post.
Life has been interesting....
So this is just to let anyone who might still be checking in here know what's happening.
Last July, my mom passed away. Before she did, I was able to go visit her and make peace with the past. She is free, now and I am glad her pain is over.
In September, I discovered that I have cancer. I made some radical changes to my diet and began taking targeted supplements. Then, in the middle of  November, the highly stressful job I had had for years came to an end. This was a good thing, as the stress was the primary cause of the cancer. The tumor has shrunk and the natural methods I have chosen are working with the added side benefit of losing a lot of weight (over 100 lbs so far).
I have been pursuing a new job - or ways to make income from home since December without much success. I am tired a lot, but willing to work. I am taking a writing class and working on a book. I interviewed for a job with the county 12 days ago and the interview went well...but I did not get the job.
Back in January, my aunt convinced me that the most efficient way to let friends know I need help was to set up a GoFundMe account. Very awkward - it has been a chance to truly learn humility. Over the last 3 1/2, people from all over the world have sent me money to keep my bills paid and roof over my head. I am very grateful.
Now, it was brought to my attention that there might be people that stop by here (assuming anyone still does!) who would want to help if they knew. So...if that is the case, I would be very grateful. My monthly bills come to an average of $500 per month and my rent is $565 per month. In addition, there is the cost of food and gas = and my car is in need of some maintenance. May's rent has been paid and May's bills star coming due in a bout a week.

Here is the link to my GoFundMe account - www.gofundme.com/ljahelp
You can give through them or through the PayPal link in my sidebar.

Thank you.
