Hey Guys. I've been up all night stressing on this. I hope you know how difficult this is for me. I don't ever want to ask anything of anybody. But, I don't have health insurance right now. And if I don't have money for my meds and therapy my depression/mania usually gets the best of me and I end up spinning out and messing up my sobriety or relenting to my depression and ending up in the psych ward. I don't share this with a lot of people, but this is where I am. Mental health is just as important as physical health, right?
I'm looking for work but right now I'm too qualified to be a legal assistant/paralegal, but can't practice law in KC until Bar Results come back at the the end of the month. Normally, I would just go to the Bank Of Dad for this, but that is all tapped out as he is getting ready to retire (deservedly so.)
Bar results will be here in a few weeks and I know I'll be able to find a job with insurance at that time. But, right now, my prescriptions and weekly therapy are costing me and arm and a leg. I need some help.
Like I said, if you know me, you know my pride is hurting hard right now. But, I desperately want to stay sober and live long enough to get a job that allows me to get insurance to cover my mental health issues and not burden Papa Cole with all of this.
I'm behind on payments for my Bipolar Meds and therapy. I need help. Any help. Once I get back on my feet I'll pay everybody back. And, I hope if you've known me for a while, you know I will pay it forward like I always have. If I'm flush, I'll help however I can.
So, I'm asking, hat in hand... if you can spare some help I'd be eternally grateful.
And, if this doesn't work out, please don't mention to Papa Cole that I even tried this. His pride would be hurt that I even asked. But, I'm grown and he's old and I'm supposed to be taking care of him by now so I want to keep this off his plate.
I'm willing to do any legal work in CA or any work of any kind in KC in the meantime.
Thank you, and I love you, and I'm sorry.
