I need help with my continued pain

Hello everyone, again. Unfortunately, my back injuries have not healed to a point where I am capable of returning to my job, and I am again asking for some assistance in light of having asked once before.

As per my last campaign to raise funds for my mangled back with its injuries (https://www.plumfund.com/financial-hardship/please-help-me-with-my-recovery-from-back-injuries) I have been unable to recover from my torn serratus, which occurred when I sadly strained too hard on the toilet one morning where I went to take a biobreak, and the biobreak almost took me instead. I am the person people were warned about straining too hard on the toilet or you'd hurt yourself.

This comes on top of a severe fall that also occurred not days later, which has left the permanent mark of searing pain if I sit on hard objects for longer than a few minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0czUe674PBM

Both injuries together, despite attempting work over the last couple years, would not recover and I was forced to take time off from work in order for recovery to properly happen (I install seismic rod systems to counter earthquakes, helping protect lives and buildings in the event of a strong earthquake). I'm still incapable of lifting my general work load without causing the serratus to strain, sending searing pain through the right side of my back, and thus I am back to ask once more for help.

Essentially, I have come to ask, grovel, beg for another round of assistance in order to keep the house we have above our heads, so I can keep myself going for a bit longer, and so I can keep Ally fed and healthy as I continue to work on my pain relief so I can return to work.

If you can help, I greatly appreciate any sort of donation to help keep things going for my little dog and I, and even if you can't, I hope your month has gone well and the new year treats you better than this year has.

(I understand there is a minimum, if you have a method of etransfer, I can work with that as well: my general email address is williambenjaminrice@gmail.com)

Latest Update

Well, with all the help I've gotten, it seems all things must end eventually. Even though I have managed to keep up on the rent over the past six months thanks to the help of many, I still haven't managed to shave off two previous months of debt (totaling 1000 of 5200, we pay 2600 a month, I pay half at 1300) and they're upset that I haven't recovered fast enough to make amends for it. If I don't have enough by the end of this month, about another two grand to cover this month and the debt, I'm probably screwed. Thanks to all that have helped, though, it's been a tough run trying to unscrew this serratus, but the world doesn't wait for anyone but itself. I don't know what I can do to get it to work in time, but I'm going to have to try something. Hope everyone else is having a better sunday.

I wanted to just make a quick update on how things are going: so far things are getting a bit more stable with things being paid back down to zero, getting meds and physio paid, and so far with continued effort I am slowly able to start using weights to exercise with and not overly bother the serratus. I can only do a bit at a time, but it's an improvement and that's been a beacon of light combined with the support I've received here. It's already mid-month, though, this isn't quite enough to return to drilling in seismic installs or even the light work of moving steel hardware around, but with being able to lift weights now, I'm getting there. Thank you all, now and in the future.
