More Info

My name is Mark Hicks and I  can really use some help from any one that can help. Let me start from the beginning  June 5 2015 was the worst day of my life My partner of six years passed away from HIV which he never told me he had in fact he always told me he was getting tested which was a lie.On the exact day he passed I found  out he had given it to me. You could imagine I was floored I couldn't believe this to find this out like this on the same day he had died seemed to much to bare I couldn't hold it in the tears flowed like a rushing river and the man that gave  me the test let me cry on his shoulder it seem like forever as  he was holding me up keeping me from falling to the floor. so then I go home to mine and franks apartment still in shock what was going on. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse his sister shows up and informs me that I had to be out of the apartment by the next day and all I could take with me was a couple of changes of clothes and that's it because since we kept every thing in his name that it all belongs to her I was lucky  she let me keep the dog that frank got for me when we first got together. So now not only did I lose my partner and find out I was HIV+ I was now going to be homeless and lose everything that I owned. How could this all be  happening to me what did I do to deserve all this. so I went back to the place I got tested not knowing were else to  turn and the same guy was there and I told him what happened and informed him that I was going to kill myself cause all this was just to much so he was able to get me into a crisis house. Well every since then I was unable to get out from being homeless. Was arrested a couple times for illegal lodging  and even tried a live in program which I ended up getting kick out of because I wouldn't sleep with the house manager. I know she knew I was gay and HIV+ but she didn't care and so she kicked me out and she even got away with it But that's a whole other story. So then Covid came  so I desided to move back out to the desert to a place called slab city figured it would be safer then San diego. So now here I am out in the desert living in a shell of a motor home that I purchased with the last little bit of money I had. So here I am out here with no income but I am an artist so I'm thinking maybe I can sell my art online and maybe start an online business but the biggest problem  I am facing is I have no wifi or even power so thats why I am coming on here in hopes that if I can raise enough money I can get some panels and batterys and maybe a generator and get all the things or at least some of the things to have power so I could start my online business and also get some art supplies so please if anybody can help please do thank you so  much.
