Many of the services I did not ask for but had no choice in recieving because of the nature of my condition. (For example, I did not want nor did I need to be transported by ambulance and asked if a roommate could drive me, but the hosptial said no. Now I have a thousand dollar bill for a ride that was less than a mile from my home.)
I'm currently at a point where I have to pick groceries or the neurologist, cell phone bill or therapy bill. It doesn't help that I owe more than I make in student loans, as well. I've stopped my 401K, pursued selling reproductive-type things, (I do not qualify for most of these endeavors in large part to my current health issues), and done a myriad of underground Craigslist gigs to get ahead .
I am an extremely hardworking young professional with a steady job and a positive outlook, but I don't know where to turn right now. If I can make a decent payment on my medical bills, they will knock off an additional chunk, which will put me in a much stabler position- one where I'm at least not frightened all the time that I'm going to be homeless because I almost killed myself, and the people who 'helped' seem to be happiest that I'm alive so they can take more money.
I am trying to raise 2,000 by the end of August to cut down a big portion of my psychiatric stay, which will also put me in a place of stability where I can make monthly loan payments, rent, and treat my chronic pain and neurological disorders.
I don't how else to ask for help, just know that I have resorted to everything to try and make myself "normal" again. I have no choice but to keep going regardless, but anything donated to me would be saving me much more than cost, and I will find a way to pay it forward to someone else in need in the future. Thank you for your time and consideration.
