I thought my troubles were over in February but unfortunately I had to be rushed to the hospital again in May. This time I was rushed to the ER and they performed an MRI. The doctors found the cause of my collapses: there are two tumors (benign: NOT malignant cancer) that are severely affecting my health.
One is a Pituitary Macroadenoma and the other is an Adenomatous Polyp. The doctor suspects that the Pituitary Macroadenoma is what is causing me to pass out and has been affecting my vision as well. The Adenomatous Polyp is probably causing my unhealthy weight gain as well as exacerbating my IBS.
This comes at a time where my last job was causing me enough stress that I had to leave for my mental health. The doctor is unsure of the direct cause, however they mentioned stress as a plausible factor. I could no longer ignore my bodies signals/warnings that there was something wrong. In the meantime, while my job search continues (I have an interview lined up at Intuit!), these bills are due in mid June, sooner than any potential income could take care of them.
I've been resisting asking for help, however people who care about me have convinced me that I do need to reach out for help.
My surgery is scheduled for mid July (a major portion of my medical bills will appear then). That means there will be more bills to come which I hope to be able to take care of on my own. This current campaign is just to cover what I have already been billed.
It's very difficult for me to ask, but any help given would be greatly appreciated, and I would be eternally grateful.
