Breaking my back wasn't cheap :(

On May 27, I went out for a ride on my Harley. I unfortunately came upon an extremely sharp curve in the road that I was unable to control. Next thing I knew, I was laying in a ditch telling my friend Chris to call 911.
I ended up with a compression fracture on my L2 vertebrae (basically it exploded when I landed in the ditch) and some scratches on my spinal cord. 
I was wearing all of my safety gear, helmet, gloves, boots, armored jacket, therefore I had no other injuries, not even a bruise.
I do have health insurance, but it turns out that my limits for what they pay are very low, I haven't gotten the final bill yet, but I've already gotten several bills that add up to far over $300,000. It almost doesn't seem real seeing bills that high. 
I don't like asking people for money, but I am unable to work and drive myself anywhere, so I have no income coming in, and I don't even know how I'm going to pay my normal bills besides this tragedy. Anything you can donate will help me a lot, even if it's $1. Thank you so much for helping me out, It means a great deal to me.
