This is the hardest and most embarrassing thing I have had to do in my life. I guess I will just tell my story. In February of 2013 I had my lung collapse which put me in the hospital for a week. After I was out for 3 days my lung collapsed again. This time I needed surgery to remove part of my lung. After this I was in the ER about 3 more times and finally in March of 2014 they took out my gallbladder.. More bills..My life had been turned upside down financially after that. So I tried to change it by moving to North Dakota to be with the man I love. I didn't think that I was going to have a hard time finding a job. However, I did find a job and in May/June 2015 my uncle and dad passed away within days of each other and I lost my job.. (long Story). The death of my father has pretty much depressed me for awhile now. Then in Nov of 2015 I had a pulmonary embolism that took me out in the ambulance. I was lucky that the EMT saved my life.. But lately I have been thinking she shouldn't, then I wouldn't be writing this.
Now I know that some people will say why don't you just sell everything you have or why not ask the bf for help. Chris has been great but I have always been an independent woman and never relied on a guy. Plus, I have sold my truck and paid for a different more reliable vehicle. I did have medical insurance but it doesnt pay for everything. Being in the hospital for this many times isn't cheap.
I have a dog named Tango who has been there for me during this whole time and has saved me from thinking I am better off dead. I wouldnt sell him for the world. I am not the type of person to borrow from people because I feel I can do it on my own. Ask my friends, I am one stubborn person. I have a job working with special needs children and the pay is not enough for me to put my head above water. I have been trying to find something other to help out but for some reason I am either too qualified or not enough experience. Yes, people do make mistakes, how do we learn if we don't.
I have always tried to be a positive person but lately it is getting drained out of me. Any amount would help. I realize there are people out in the world that need more help than me so I thought I would just take a chance. Share all you want.
No negative comments would be appreciated since this is very hard for me to do.
Thank you so much,
