Medical Bills/Eating Disorder Treatment

I am currently in Minnesota receiving treatment for an eating disorder. Unfortunately, when I started treatment I was much sicker than I had anticipated. I was diagnosed with refeeding syndrome and at high risk for having a heart attack. The doctors were very concerned, and I was taken by an ambulance to the emergency room and quickly placed into 24 hour care. This was an unexpected turn of events. Medical bills have started to pile up and unfortunately I have run out of funds to be able to stay in treatment. I desperately need more time to recover from this eating disorder. I have been in treatment for a very short time and would like to be able to continue. I am stuck in Minnesota with no money for lodging, food or medicine. I don't even have money to get back home to Nevada. I am embarrassed to be in a place where I have to reach out for help, but I am desperate. I would be so appreciative of any help. I am hoping to stay in treatment for at least another month. I am blessed to have a great team of experts who specialize in treating eating disorders. I don't want to lose them. The longer I stay in treatment, the more chance I will recover. I want to be well so I can go home, take care of my two children, return to school and find a job. Please help. I am asking for the chance to get well and rebuild my life. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Please share this. Thank you.
