Medical Bills/Save My Home

For the last 19 years, I have suffered with back issues in spurts. From a strained muscle to severe back pain. In October of 2012, something changed in my back and I was unable to do anything. I have degenerative disc disease which is painful. It is causing my sciatic nerve to be compressed, leaving me in debilitating pain. I am unable to drive a lot or work. Walking is hard and unbearable at times. There are even times where I cannot even take care of myself.

I have been on Short Term disability off and on. It is only 80% of my pay. They don't pay the day they approve and they take their sweet time approving. Right now, due to my condition, I am about to lose my home. I am unable to pay utility bills or even pay some of the medical expenses. Now that I am starting the process for surgery, money is even tighter (especially since there isn't any money to tighten up on)

I am just asking, for my birthday (july 1st), instead of getting me a present or even sending me a card, that you simply donate. Even if it is just $5 (That is the minimum amount available on the site). Help me save my home and pay some of my medical expenses.

Thank you for any and all help you can offer. God bless.

Edit to add: To be clear I AM employed, I am on leave. The pay you receive while on leave is only 80% of your normal pay. ALSO, due to seeing multiple Doctors (which is necessary), it takes a lot longer to get the leave approved AND to get paid. Because of THAT, I am about to lose my home and what not.
