Darin's got the "Hernia Blues"

Hello my friends, fans, and family. I come to you humbled and in need. I have had a very difficult couple weeks. I'm trying to keep my head up. I ended up in the hospital with the worst abdominal pain in my life. I was truely scared. I found out I have diverticulitis. A colon desease.  It's hereditary. The doctors kept prodding and pushing on my abdomen to determine where the pain was and if I had an appendicitis and they ended up reaggrevating my hernia and now I have to have surgery on it because the pain is just unbareable. It's a domino effect. I'm so frustrated but what can I do. I didn't have insurance because I was two weeks away from leaving to go south and get insurance in Costa Rica. I was so close. ACA (Obamacare) doesn't work outside of the US. It doesn't cover me in Costa Rica or Holland anywhere else I go. 
So here I am broken and in need of a surgery so that I can get back to being a whole person. I'm so sorry to ask for this help but I am desperate. I thank you deeply for your help and I promise I will entertain each and every one of you more then I ever have for your generosity. 
God bless you all!
