Medical Bills for Hospital Stay

Hi Friends,

Here's my story, but before you read please don't feel like you have to donate if you are unable to. If you can help I would greatly appreciate it!

For several months I was having pretty severe migraines and after having the most recent migraine and a stiff neck for four days straight, I ended up in the emergency room on July 8th. The doctor started treating me for a migraine but then noticed pressure behind my eyes, while doing an exam, so he decided to do a CT scan. The results came back that I have Venous Sinus Thrombosis (or a blood clot in a vein in my brain). I was transferred to a different hospital where they did an MRI to confirm the diagnosis, and then I was admitted to stay at the hospital so they could treat me. That night I had several blood tests done and was going to be put on blood thinners and sent home the next day but then had a seizure from the pressure on my brain (blood wasn't leaving my brain properly) so I had to be put on anti-seizure medication and be monitored for several more days until the neurologist thought I was stable enough to be home. I had several "auras" or pre-seizure like symptoms where I went through periods of confusion that I can't remember, but once I was able to make it at least 36 hours without one I was sent home. I spent a total of 6 days in the hospital. Now that I'm home I have been having pretty extreme exhaustion. I'm also not allowed to drive for at least 3 months because of the seizure. I drive to people's homes for the main part of my job so for the next 3 months I am going to only be working as much as I can part time but will not get my regular income which is why any help will be greatly appreciated.
