Sexually harassed at work, now PTSD and depressed

Postby Magic » Mon Nov 19, 2018 11:15 pm

Good Afternoon:
I'm a 51 year old woman seeking a place to call home. In 2002 and 2003 I was sexually harassed and fired on two separate occasions from two different jobs. My bosses were demanded * from me for money and promotions and demeaned me. I was well respected by judges and lawyers as well as the ninth circuit Court of appeals as a paralegal. During that time I also worked as a sales a finance manager where the harassment occurred. I sued both companies and won. I was diagnosed with PTSD which I am now receiving SSI since approx 2006, 2007. Due to this I have lost everything including my home. Here it is 2018 and I'm homeless. I have lived with friends and relatives and all it has done is kept me in a disable state. I'm not getting better only getting worse. The one thing that would help me significantly is having my own place somewhere to call home!! I have searched high and low even been put on a waiting list with no success.
My state of depression is only gotten worse not better. I want to be able to move on with my life but it's extremely hard especially when you live with someone who asks you to leave every other week or month and decided putting his hands on me was ok. I am respectfully asking for your assistance In helping me find the proper resources that will help me get into a place of my own. And if not may be refer me to places that will. I fear for my safety but I have no place to go except sleep in my car and I'm scared to do that. If I don't find something soon I'm afraid what could happen. I know one thing for sure if I had a stable home of my own where I would be safe and not told to leave causing me so much stress. I would be able to move forward concentrate on myself, be happy and feel whole again. Setting goals for myself. This is the only way I can do it . It's 16 years too long since the last time i worked and I would like to to work again. I can't do anything with all of this stress from my past sexual harassment. it destroyed my life. I have no home and it's destroying me and my judgement calls. Please help me. You may contact me. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
