Three months ago I was told I needed immediate shoulder surgery. Just one month later, I had to move so the surgery was postponed. The biggest reason for moving was to afford to have this shoulder surgery with the minimum 6 weeks recovery time. Too many unforeseen moving expenses cost me all of my savings. Since then, my business has suffered, my shoulder has gotten much worse, and I've been dealing with certain degrees of depression. Then two weeks ago I was told I have to move again in a few months. Meaning I have to relieve the emotional and financial stress of moving again; that's just not possible. It also means I can't have the surgery until I've moved, again, which is without question financially impossible. Within the last couple weeks my shoulder has gotten worse to the point where it's been hard to work. Now I'm scared. So much so I decided to swallow my pride and ask for help.
These funds will help me move, allow me to have the sholder surgery with 6 weeks of recovery, and will allow me to pay medical bills. I need this shoulder surgery so I can move forward with my life and continue working. There's no way I can survive for six weeks without working. Medical expenses alone are astronomical. These funds will also help me get to physical therapy which will cost over $100 per session with driving and copays. They'll help pay rent, put food on the table, gas in the truck and regular monthly expenses during the recovery time. They'll also help with any unforeseen moving costs.
In addition to feeling depressed, last week my uncle passed away. That was too much. Trying to cope, alone, has made feel so much emptyness and regret, not to mention the shame of not be able to afford to go and be with my family and pay respect. I've spent my whole life helping and giving to others, now I am the one who is in need. I've never felt more alone and helpless than I do at this moment, which is hard to write publicly. I've been struggling to climb into financial freedom but since my divorce two years ago, and was close at one point. Getting the shoulder surgery will help me get back to a place where I can continue to work hard at achieving financial freedom.
I know I create my destiny but sometimes we all need some help. The stress, frustration and embarrassment of my situation is as real as it gets, as is the urgency of my situation. Any emotional and physical stress relief would be a miracle. Any donation would be extremely appreciated in this difficult time. This is extremely hard and embarrassing to write as I've always been the one to offer help.
Thank you for your time and thank you in advance for any help you're able to offer.
