Medical Bills

One year ago I left the states for Istanbul, Turkey to start teaching english. Before leaving, I got an IUD because access to birth control over here is kind of sketchy and I wanted to be safe. However, my body has rejected it and now its requiring me to have a surgery (not a big one, but it will require anesthisia). The truth is that it's simply too expensive to have here in Turkey (considering I don't have health care here as I was recently fired from my job with no notice or reason given). I now find myself in a situation where I don't have money to pay for the expensive surgery here, but I also don't have money to get back home to the States where I could get it done with a doctor I can communicate with at a clean facility. Since I am fully supporting myself over here in Turkey without parental help, I'm asking for help to get back to the States so I can get this looked at. Rather be safe than sorry! Any little donation will help, so if you can find it in your hearts of lady parts to help me get back and get well, I'd really appreciate it :)
