A family needs our help. Can you help?

When I first started blogging a came across a blog called The Bipolar Diva. She is an amazing woman and we bonded quickly. Though she suffers from some dark demons of her own her and her husband live a life of giving to others. They have dedicated their lives to their children, many of which they have adopted. When I was raising funds to attend Blissdom Canada 2010 she was there to donate what she could to get me there. When I was at the court house dealing with getting custody of Big Brother she was on the phone with me the entire time. When it was the middle of the night and I was worried about Little Brother who was 3 months old and sick she jumped on facetime with me to give me her advice. She has been a great support to me through everything I have been through even when going through her own troubles. Many times I wish I could reach through the computer and hug her.

Their family has suffered many tragic events and have stayed strong together. They have been hit by another horrible event testing their strength and ability to join together and overcome it. Her husband Jeff was in a motorcyle accident. You can read about the accident here https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/bjb2/jeffworley.

It hurts my heart that they are suffering yet another hit to their family. Though I am so thankful Jeff is still with us. However Jeff is the sole provider for their family. If you can please donate to help them with medical bills and day to day bills while they band together to get Dad better. If you can’t please share their story. Let’s spread the word and help a family who is always there to help others.

  1. Yes, we did bond, I love you! Never did I think we’d be in this position, but here we are. We’re racking our brains on how to survive until he can work again, we’ve always been the ones to give, not the ones to be given to, so it’s a new, humbling experience for us. Luckily you see beyond the facade of my “persona” and know the reality. It’s so scary. SO glad he survived. BUT today I began noticing some things that may be indications of brain damage. He’s coherent, and can carry on a conversation, but he can’t read for more than a minute or two, he can’t text, and when he does, his words are mixed up(he usually has me return all emails, text….not like him at all), he can’t stand much stimulation around him. I understand a lot of this can be caused by the pain meds. But I’m taking him in to have a through and through evaluation. He did take a bad hit to the head and by the sheriff’s guess he was out for probably 10-11 minutes, that’s how long it took them to get to the scene and they were able to wake him. He showed no signs of brain damage then, but things are slowly beginning to crop up. sigh. I’m tired. I feel so selfish for being so tired, when he’s so hurt. but I am, I’m exhausted, as are the kids…..long journey I think. Since we own our own business, he doesn’t work, we don’t get paid, and no disability. Scared. Love you, and thank you!

  2. Oh man, I will have to see what I can come up with for them. I can not even begin to imagine what they are going through and I can only hope that he gets better and fast. What a terrible thing to have to deal with. My heart goes out to them!
