Please Help Me Continue Physical Therapy

If you know me personally, you see me SMILING on the outside...but on the inside, I am struggling. Before the pandemic, I was diagnosed with the following conditions between January and March of 2020:

1. Two heart valve leakage
2. Lung mass
3. Pre-diabetes 
4. Rheumatoid Arthritis 
5. Carpal Tunnel
6. Migraines
7. Sleep Apnea
8. Deviated Septum

Then the pandemic hit and by July 2020, the following conditions were added:
 9. Adhesive Capsulitis 
10. Sciatica
11. Shingles
12. Rotator Cuff Tear

I lost my job due to Covid-19 and the lockdown. Now, my mobility on my left arm is limited due to the frozen shoulder (aka Adhesive Capsulitis) and rotator cuff tear. The competition for job seekers are fierce and I'm not the best candidate because of my pre-existing conditions. I'm doing everything that I can to generate income from online marketing to selling my belongings.

I'm now swallowing my pride to ask you for help. I'm embarrassed and ashamed but I've hit the lowest point of my life & find myself in a desperate situation. I now have to choose between going to physical therapy and buying food. Naturally, I've cut back on my grocery. My days of ramen are here again.

I get $1,316.00 (UI)/month of which $120/month goes to PT, $509 to utilities & the remainder towards rent/food/transportation/cc bills. Clearly, it's not enough to survive. I've maxed out my credit cards and fallen behind rent. 

If you can find it in your heart to help with my physical therapy, I would truly appreciate it. The sooner I can increase the mobility in my left arm, the more opportunities I can get for work. I was told that a frozen shoulder can take between 1-3 years to recover and I'm praying that it's sooner than later. The $840.00 GFM Goal will go towards 7 months of physical therapy. I'm hoping I have a job by springtime.

Every little bit helps. Even $1 to me is worth gold during these challenging times. I promise to pay it forward when I recover and back up on my feet.

Thank you for your consideration!


Sincerely,
Katarina
