Help Patrick get a Hysto

Hey friends- Sharing this info is hard, as is asking for help, but I'm trying to apply the same model around self compassion I use for others to myself, as I know so many of us can relate to.

I recently learned of some atypical cells after a pap, and am experiencing a lot of painful cramping and low energy on the daily, which is creating a lot of discomfort and dysphoria. There's also a piece where my doctors want to do a pap every 2 months to monitor things which I have a hard time getting down with.

The short of it: I'm trying to get a hysterectomy.

Some of you may know that due to lifethings, I'm already in hard spot financially. While I have high hopes that my doctor can get the hysto covered by my health insurance, this is still really uncertain, and the idea of accruing more debt than I have right now is making it hard to proceed with the process of getting this done.

The money I'm asking for, to be clear: Since I work fee for service, is what I would make in two good pay periods, so I'll be able to recover and pay my regular bills. If I raise more than that, awesome, since my insurance is contigent on how much I work, and missing up to 2-4 weeks of work will create more of a monetary/ health coverage discrepancy.

I'm being intentional about who I share this with because of the sensitive and personal information, so please ask before sharing this page/information with anyone. 

With so much love and gratitude,

Patrick
