I'm having bariatric surgery next week and trying to prevent from becoming homeless.

My health condition started with a rare lung disease called Pulmonary Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. Cysts filled my lungs, I was on oxygen, and didn't have the lung function to be able to move much. I gained a lot of weight and now I have been diagnosed with Lipedema. Lipedema is a painful fat disorder. It's not really my fault I am like this. I am explaining this because someone from DU who I will not call out here.. posted on my facebook that I should get a job and stop begging for money. I thought I do owe people a more detailed explanation of what is going on in my life, no matter how embarrassing it is.

I'm having Duodenal Switch Procedures - SADI-S surgery a week from today on 7/21/22. I'm 7 days into my fat free milk diet. I can having nothing but fat-free milk for 14 days to shrink my liver for a safer surgery. Because I also have Lipedema, there will have to be more surgeries in the future to get rid of the remaining painful fat.

On top of the health issues, being on the brink of homelessness, my son who just lost his step father, Tommy has been disowned by his bio dad and bio family. Tommy came into my life when my son was 4, Tommy was his dad, they were close. My son is gay. It's not a big deal to me and wasn't to Tommy but his bio father is Egyptian and Muslim. My son's father snooped in his laptop while my son was visiting him. That whole side of the family instantly disowned him. He is devastated. We're going through a lot. I thought I needed to explain more of what is happening after getting told to get job and stop begging. I promise you, this is not easy. I don't want to ask. It's a lot easier to try and deal with this now than later if I have an eviction on my record. If you have a little extra, please help me. I do genuinely appreciate all the help I get.

P.S please forgive my grammar. I'm not a good writer.
