Since March of 2013, I was diagnosed with kidney failure. I have been getting dialysis treatments three times a week, for 4 1/2 hours each time. This has made it impossible for me to keep a job, so I have needed to survive on the pennies per month that I can get from disability. This is not the life I want, and I find myself trying very hard to hold onto my trademark sense of humor. My bills are piling up as I work toward getting a kidney transplant. A few people suggested that I turn to this site for help with my medical and living expenses. I hesitated for a long time, because I have always prided myself on being independent. I am learning, however, that there is no shame in asking for help. I will continue to be unable to work for almost a year after my transplant, but I have every intention of getting back into the world as soon as I can. I hope to eventually grow a business from my culinary talents, and maybe to even settle down with that Prince Charming.
If you are able to help me I would greatly appreciate it. I am working so hard toward getting healthy, and I look forward to one day being able to reach out and help others. Thank you for considering my request.
