Help due to medical leave

Hi everyone! Here’s an update on me. I’ve been back to work for a couple months now, but they’ve been cutting hours bad at work these last few weeks, so I haven’t been able to catch up on any bills or my rent. In fact, I’ve been falling even further behind and I’m probably about to be asked to move, before they officially start the eviction process. And Section 8 is dicking me around, not helpful at all in getting this sorted out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi everyone! So, here’s my story. I got a pretty scary health diagnosis later last year that my doctor and I were trying to treat conservatively (non surgically). That didn’t work as well as the doctor was hoping, so I ended up needing a hysterectomy. I had the surgery and I’m healing well, but there is the financial downside of 6 weeks off work. I should be getting back to work soon, but I still don’t have a firm date on that yet. Plus I’ll need to miss work here and there for the next couple months for further treatments and follow up appointments.

I don’t have health insurance, but fortunately the hospital system I go to has an awesome financial aid program. This means that my medical bills should be negligible to nonexistent- but then there’s rent and other bills, food, etc. My family is awesome and have been helping me out as much as they can, but they can’t cover everything for me.

And to top it all off: My landlord has been awesome and patient these last few weeks while I’ve been trying to get ahold of my caseworker for my rent assistance program, to get my rent lowered during my time off, but she hasn’t gotten back to me yet- and he just told me that he’s going to start eviction proceedings very soon if we don’t work something out. And I have absolutely no money to give him. Nothing. So I really don’t know what else to do but set this campaign up and hope that some kind people out there in Internet Land will be able to help me out. I know that money is tight for so many of us, but I would be deeply appreciative of anything you might be able to send my way. Thank you!
