A little more than a year ago, I woke up, got out of bed, and fell down. I hurt myself. When I tried to stand up, I couldn't. I have nobody up here in the desert in California. Even my Mom has left, as she is sick too. When one cannot walk, it makes the lousy COPD seem like nothing. I am on a walker now. I have been sent to neuro, foot men, stomach experts. I have been through MRI's (which are very costly). I DO have insurance, at over 7 bills a month.
While doing the MRI's they found stomach cancer. They found that my gall bladder had somehow infected my pancreus. I require more tests and surgery. WHILE I was thinking that I just had to get walking again...those MRI's indicated that surgeries would be involved...I ran out of money. Anyone would.
In the mean time, Pixie, my Kitty of 10 years, became diabetic. She is a rescue and feral. Her medical bills are killing me. Boo (best rescue dog) got a chest cold.
I have some money invested in this house, and they are going to take it away...Soon!
SO, I never, ever thought I would be so alone and almost on the street with so much illness eating my body.
Having said that, it has come to the point to where I have to beg (so embarrassing) my friends, whom I know are not rich, for a donation to help keep me alive and with a roof over my head.
Anything will help. ANYTHING.
I have reached the end of the line now. There IS nowhere else to go anymore.
I am so very sorry to have to ask you for a handout. I will have stuff I made to sell, that I can post pictures of...
I love you all. I hope you understand that if there were any other way, I would choose it. I also spoke with my other friends who have funds going, as I did not want to take their donations, and they said go do it, they are not having the fund anymore.
I am seriously on my knees, praying and...I don't know what else to say. I DO NOT WANT TO DIE. No more doctors until I get some money and the bills, I am about to be turned off...I can't even believe this...
I apologize for bringing you into this...if you can, will you please try to help?
All my love...................no matter what.
