Medical Bills and living expenses

My name is Ada and until January of this year I would say things were going okay.  Then I had blood work done and well, things were not okay, then I kept getting sick and then I had a flair up of my Bell's Palsy and was told that I had to go on short term disability because it's my job to talk on the phone for 8 hours a day and I couldn't and nothing else was available for me to do.  So in 3 weeks I have blown through my deductible of 1625.00, which is what I had in my HRA and FSA account - after all, I didn't expect this to happen.  Anyway that leaves my out of pocket amount which I have no idea how I will pay, even if it's just little bits at a time - I have had two MRIs which haven't even processed yet and an EMG coming up and those are just what I have going on now - I can't even begin to describe the cost for the upcoming appointments and medication.  Once I meet my out of pocket though, my insurance picks up at 100% and, because I'm totally freaking out, not currently working and don't get a full paycheck for disability I'm reaching out for help.  This money pays for my out of pocket medical expnses and the associated fees for go fund me only.  This may change in the future depending (like, when I have surgery this year - and yes, I know this is coming too - once my other doctor's approve it and if there comes up problems for this disability maybe help for other bills such as rent/electric but right now I'm just focusing on the medical bills).  I hate to ask for help but there is no way I can afford this amount of money on 550.00 a paycheck (take home disabilty pay) or even if I was working and getting a full paycheck.  And, the kicker is, that I know I'll have my out of pocket met sooner rather than later (after all the MRIs from last week, the additional blood work tomorrow, the test on monday, prescriptions and so forth are all coming).  I don't intend to beg or to cause a burden for anyone but I am going to go out on a limb and ask for help.
