Stage 4 Endometriosis diagnosis & Lost Job!

In early March, my spouse left me and completely physically, emotionally and financially abandoned me. During this time I found out I have endometriosis. The combination of my endometriosis and heart issues (due to stress), I was unable to continue to perform my duties at work and was let go.

I have no income and am waiting on support from my estranged spouse, but these legal matters take time. I would be eligible for unemployment, but with the endo pain, I am usually too debilitated to leave the house. The bright side is that once my financial situation levels out, I can go to a specialist, get treatment and likely return to work or in the very least decide if I should go on disability (my very last resort).

I have sold nearly everything I can to pay for food, bills and medical expenses. I am currently making and selling crafts and art work in between my spells of pain to try to make some sort of money. My biggest roadblock at this point is the pain and episodes are so overwhelming and inconsistent, no matter what I try, I can’t get into a routine.

So many people have helped me already and I absolutely hate to ask for more, but I’m really not sure what to do at this point but to ask again. I am trying to sell anything I can to make it, but with my stress causing me to stay near stroke levels, I’m limited in what I can do right now to even help myself. My rent, utilities, phone, and car insurance combined come to nearly $2000. That’s not including money for my medicine, doctors visits, food or gas (which luckily gas will not be an issue since I will not be driving a long commute anymore).

As soon as I am cleared to return to work, I plan on working hard to find another job. I’m doing my best to try to stay calm for my health and I am open for ideas. Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated. Prayers, thoughts, good vibes, well wishes, I welcome it all! I’m definitely going to need it right now. I know some will judge me harshly, some already have, but I have to accept that and do my best to survive right now. Thank you for taking the time to read this, to help me and to make sure I’m ok. Any help you can provide is very much appreciated.
