Help a mixed transwoman in medical debt

Hi everyone, this is my first time writing for a gofundme so im sorry if its too lengthy, its just a lot. Im only currently asking for help with my medical debt over help with housing or HRT at the moment because it feels crucial that I clear my medical roadblock in my way, im 20 years old and aiming to transition and trying to get into a culinary course, but my life is halted and even if I am hired tomorrow there is absolutely no way ill be paid on time before the deadline. Additionally, my insurance expired in 2019. I received a letter recently from the hospital telling me that my debt is to be collected and given a thirty day period. On August 31st 2020, in the midst of a panic attack, I accidentally sliced my hand open trying to push garbage down back. A metallic lid had hooked my hand and tore the flesh open on my finger and palm and I would not stop bleeding. My previous household had helped me wrap the wound with tissue and I refrained from going to the hospital. However, hours later we would check under the tissue and the bleeding would just not stop. The reason I have been putting off starting this gofundme and why im asking almost four months later is because Ive been struggling hard to actually get hired anywhere and live with a friend whos already doing their best trying to fend for themself, they dont even charge me rent. I have never made enough money since ive moved to Ohio to actually tackle the hospital debt of $1,141.94. I have about 19 pending job applications and still going out to find anywhere that will hire me, but even still, I really need to be pulled out of this rut or else I dont know what ill do The goal is 1,200 instead of the exact debt amount just so i can have a little more to scrape by with for groceries and other necesities once the debt is fulfilled. Thank you for atleast reading what I have to say, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to text me on my socials: Twitter : @OwlLunch Instagram : @bastardjodie
