My adult life has been filled with hardships that many have not endured, including living in homes for several years with no heat through cold Pennsylvania winters, 3 which had no indoor bathrooms. On May 19, 2001, after only being married 7 months, we returned to our house gutted by fire after being away for the weekend. June 2011, I bought another home and in August 2014, was evicted due to my husband’s mental illnesses. Having just undergone surgery July 2, 2014, I could not return to work yet. Having no place to go and no job or money, we had to live in a dirty garage in Harrisburg 4 months — again, no heat and no indoor bathroom.
On January 31, 2015, my then-husband I packed and feet me in 1 of his crazy mental episodes, so now I suffer from slowest and mental retardation. But I still struggle to work and try to support myself at age 59.
To win an RV would be an amazing relief, as then I would not be evicted, and I would not have to pay enormous amounts for apartment rental, and I could finally save a little money for retirement which is not too far away anymore. I live in a body wracked with pain, but also refuse to collect Social Security yet.
