Neverland's Post-Operative Fund
Sabrina's 'GoFundMe' Ask for Help
♥Total Bills due for July 2015: $1,003.xx
♥Total Medical Bills Due to Date: $6450.xx
here's what happened:
♥ - 06.01.15: i was going to work. covering another office, roughly 50 minutes from my house. i was driving during rush hour on i95. i was in the far left lane of four lanes. i hit on the left side and lost control of my car.
then this: i began to 360 in circles - once, twice, and half a third. going from left to right, across the interstate during rush hour. colors - a red car, a blue one, maybe two or three semis - smoke, the smell of fire, and then the backwards twist into a ditch where i realized that i had landed in the safety in green, green grass - and not against another car - not ran over by semi-truck. not dead. it ran through my mind over and over and over - i was not dead - not a single person hit me and somehow i was alive.
in four lanes of traffic, i made if across with only a damaged car. at the time, at least.
♥ - 06.02.15: i worked, the next day. they wanted me to work the same day but i was too shaken up. come the next few days - it’s harder to walk. i work medical. i know the following things: after a car accident, symptoms may not show up for a few days. this is what happened to me. the limping around the office. the pain in the knee cap. it's time to get help.
♥ - 06.05.15: after work that friday, the 5th of june, i go to the doctor, i get an MRI the following week on a STAT order; results? torn meniscus, patellar dysfunctional issues, tons of inflammation. compared to my last mri on my right knee: gone from 100% clean to knowing what i know comes next.
♥ - 06.11.15 - 07.01.2015: next is pre-op, day surgery (06.17.2015); a follow-up appointment with the surgeon in two weeks; crutches before and after - immobilizer - no work. i cannot drive. i can only use crutches or rely on rides and/or uber or lyft to get my medical appointments and or medications (which i am getting to the point that i an no longer afford).
my family has offered to help and i allow them, but sometimes i feel bad and i just go through these services. there's only so many times you can call your mother who lives an hour away or aunt who works crazy hours herself.. i just can't ask for help time and time again.
they cannot help me financially. it is hard to explain my parents situation so i'll avoid that. but i learned a lesson through this all:
i need an emergency fund. even though we've spent most on the wedding details and costs, those thousands needed to be an emergency fund. lesson learned and to be acted upon as soon as i am financially capable of it.
♥ - now: currently i am working with every bill due - including rent - to see if i can just get by on the bare minimums. i had just spent three weeks off with my best friend before the accident, and due to this, i had no paid time off remaining. so, i am behind at least one month on the following bills: cable and internet, water, electrcity, cell phone, rent, and almost every single one of my credit card bills.
on top of this, i have medical bills coming in - they increase by the day with a new bill each time i check the mail. luckily these will not be sent to collections until 90-120 days so even though they are in the thousands, i can hold off on them and focus on making sure things like electric, water, and internet stay on.
if you can help in any way, i would truly appreciate it. if you need to support in another way - i do have an amazon wishlist as well as a paypal account.
any form of help is help - even just words.
thank you for tkaing your time to read

That being said... with my next pay detained the bills due, I will NOT be able to make August rent. My next paycheck will have many deductions for payments towards health and dental insurance, life insurance, etc. I really do need help to assure that I make my August rent as the individual I am renting from has already worked with me for the last three months due to this surgery and I fear I cannot ask of any more help..
If you can help in ANY way - be it a single $1.00 or $2.00, please. Everything helps because it is one step closer to making sure my rent is paid, my electric and water stays on... and I have the basics like gas and food.
I appreciate all the help thus far and that being said... I would not be here, back at work, without YOU.
SO... time to work. I hope to stand on two feet soon - and I appreciate as you all hold me up as I stand on one foot for now.
My auto benefits are completely exhausted and now my medical bills are being transferred to BCBSFL, which includes all follow ups and a portion of my surgery.. which I am waiting for a final total.
I need major assistance just until the month of August and I will figure out a way to get to September and the medical bills.. If you can assist in ANY way - my goal to get by July 25th is $875 more - which I truly believe can happen.
Thank you for all of your assistance. I consider myself blessed and I thank you all.
This girl right here feels supported in ways I can't describe, even if I knew ever word in the English Dictionary.
Love you all,
