Help Tanner's Medical Debts

This year has been hard for everyone, to be sure; for me it was one of the worst of my life so far. My savings have dwindled to nearly non-existent levels, and my medical debts have climbed to over $10,000. 

It started when I met someone I thought was my friend, but who turned out to betray me. I paid their rent, food, and pretty much everything else for months because I made the mistake of pitying them. They ground my self-esteem and mental health into dust, to the point that I had to stay in a mental hospital for a week - something that alone cost about $18,000 before insurance.

I haven't been able to find a job, partially because of the pandemic making every trip out a potentially life-threatening risk for my household, and partially because I haven't been mentally stable enough to really handle myself until maybe a week ago. This means I've been living off of savings, and I've been doing this for months. I will be looking for a job while I post this, but the bills are still coming.

On top of this, I finally needed my wisdom tooth surgery due to pains as they are growing in, which will add to my already incredible pile of debts. This surgery will take the rest of my limited savings.

I did not want to ask for help like this, but after the year I've been through, I could see no other option. 

I understand that this year has hurt everyone financially. Any little bit you can give helps, and I will be forever grateful to have any amount of this weight off of my shoulders. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope your year is better than mine.
