This is difficult for me. Very difficult. I can offer help anywhere and anytime, even when I don’t have it. Asking? It makes me…ugh.

I’m in a bad spot. My spirits are up, but my butt and bank account are down and I am stranded in Tijuana with a fractured ankle. The plan was to head back to Philly where I have a job waiting for me at the end of the month, but I won’t be able to drive now for 6-8 weeks.

I am open to any kind of remote work. I’ve added my resume to my website along with collateral materials. I am working on my “clips” page today. The job hunt has not been going well and I’ve exhausted my immediate options along with my cash reserves.

I had to start a GoFundMe fundraiser. Anything would help and be appreciated.

And I have no idea why the above link is not displaying? But anyway…

I plan on keeping at it: the job hunt #1 priority, the book and the podcast.

This is depressing as hell but I am actually feeling good mentally and emotionally. I have hope and purpose again and there are good people here who are helping me out with necessities. Nobody wants to give me the needle in my ass, though, that my doctor recommended. Can’t bring myself to do it–I have a phobia when it comes to needles. I thought people would be lining up for my invitation to be a pain in my ass.

I get the hard cast tomorrow, Friday. The swelling had to go down. I’m making it around pretty well and getting used to the crutches, especially after a friend sent me a video on how to adjust them properly.

The good news is the doctor said I don’t need surgery. The bad news is that it was very close. I can’t put any weight on my right foot or else it might lead to surgery and further complications.

Anything would be appreciated. You could even just share this with any hiring managers or small business owners looking for some help with writing and a social media presence.
