Sick and Broke
I've been sick off and on for years. And, for years, nobody could tell me why. Recently, I've found I have Gastropareses. An incurable stomach condition which can make me extremely sick with vomiting, stomach cramps, violent diarrhea, etc. I have missed a lot of work over those years because of this and am lucky to still have a job. Most places would have fired me due to continued missed work. Over all this time, when I had some money, I helped others where I could and paid all the bills this has racked up. Now, I’m completely broke. If I miss work, I don’t get paid. If I don’t get paid, I can’t pay my rent. So far, I’ve gone 3-4 weeks without missing any days. Some of those days I’ve come to work extremely sick and vomiting. But, I needed to get paid or become homeless. What I am asking for here is for some financial support from friends, family, people I don’t know…Anybody who can afford a few bucks to get me through the future. Anything would be appreciated and if you can’t help, that is fine. I know everybody has their own lives and own problems and I’m not trying to take anything away from that. I just don’t want to be kicked out of my house the next time I get sick.+ Read More
My hope is to return all donations with interest once I am able. Like some already know who've loaned me money in the past, it may take me several years to pay it back, but when I do, it includes 100% interest. I expect to do the same thing now, if possible. The latest round of medication has allowed me to work four weeks straight. That hasn't happened in a very long time. If I can keep working, I can get back on my feet and ahead. Which, is how I plan on making this back up to everybody. But, I never know what will happen. I can only hope and try.
