SPY Put Selling Test

Hi guys, I'm currently trying to test an algo for selling SPY puts, but I'm having trouble getting the code right. I'm wondering if anyone's able to see where I'm going wrong with my code? Specifically, I'm using a try-except clause to check whether I have the option position, and if so, pass, otherwise, check if I've been assigned and liquidate the SPY shares before selling another put. The algorithm itself is running, but it seems that it's constantly selling puts and it reaches its maximum buying power very quickly.
