So this is the hardest part to talk about: at my most recent mandatory post-lumpechtomy check up, the doctor found a worrisome lump in my left breast. NOT diagnosing it yet, but I'm still overwhelmed with anxiety about the high possibility of this being another bout with cancer. I'm aware with my medical history that I have a high chance of his lump also being just that, and I'm trying to stay as calm as possible and not drive myself or anyone around me crazy. I am not looking forward to these future tests/ possibility of another lumpechtomy while I am still simultaneously paying for past procedures and receiving medical debt collection threats weekly.
A good friend told me about this site, and I never did anything about it until today, when I received yet another letter in the mail from my radiologist, requesting an urgent appointment/ precancerous screening. Cue panic attack and almost missing work! I have always worked hard and thought I could do this all on my own, but the numbers aren't adding up and I'm struggling to pay rent. I know now, I cannot do this on my own. Insurance, a second job, and therapy have not been enough. I need to swallow my pride and ask for help. I am asking for anything... nickles and dimes... it feels SO SO uncomfortable to me.
I owe much more than $3,500, but I feel this amount would make a significant improvement in my debt collector's eyes. If anyone can contribute anything to help me I will be forever grateful. I will also continue to pay it forward as I do on a frequent basis. God bless.
