Asking for Help is Hard

Hi! My name is Robert Hughey, and I am a 36 year-old writer/artist/creative in Atlanta, Georiga. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.  I have never been very good at asking for help from others, and because of that fault I am creating this at a time where it is very close to "too late."

Thankfully, I beleive it isn't too late, but I feel embarassed for taking it so close.

Project Details

This project is to raise money for... for my daily survival at this point.  If I had created it months ago, when I first started getting sick, I would just be raising money to see if I could somehow get my medicalbills under control. Now, I'm faced with utilities and insurance payments this month where neither I nor my family can afford everything.

If I had not been so proud and instead asked for help last month even, I'd be raising money to buy  medicine and pay my insurance. Now, I'm raising money to put food in my kitchen.  I'm honestly at a loss for words about my situation. I'm not sure how it got so dire financially so quickly, but I have been sick with many systemic and digestive infections over the past year.d

I can tell you an absolute truth: when your health is in crisis, everything else that seems important (work projects, pety drama, etc) just seems to disappear from your attention and focus. It doesn't matter near as much as feeling and being in good health.

How You Can Help


First and foremost, the honestly best way anyone could help me is to donate to this project.  If you can afford to donate $10 to my effort here, it will help me turn my situation away from the path it is on right now.

But aside from donating anything, a way I could really use your help it to help get this page seen by more people. If you are willing, sharing this project on your social media as a link or post could make a real diference for me.

Man, I still feel so bummed out about having reached this point financially that I'm asking for donations like this. But please know I wouldn't ask frivilously or even share the difficulty my life has become if it wasn't now becoming an issue of survival.  

Can you help me? I appreciate you very much for taking your valuable time and spending it reading this page of mine. That means so much to me.

Thank you so much for caring about me or being curious about me enough to take the time to learn about this fundraising effort of mine, and I wish you all the best in your own life. If I may end this with some advise: don't wait until prblems get their worst before sharing with your frineds and family what's going on, and don't be araid to ask for help when you need it. I'm learning that the hard way.

All my love to you and your loved ones,

Hey there, my friends and family,
Any chance you could share this link or post with your social network? I'm at a place where I am feeling stretched. I'm not hopeless, and I have Faith, but I'm also struggling. I could use your help if you can...

September 2015.
I'm glad that Summer is finally starting to cool down as the beginning of Fall approaches. I had an easier Summer than this past Spring, and I really want to say thank you to the people who made that my reality: my Friends and Family, seen and unseen.
At this time, I wanted to update this project and again send out a request to you who are reading this. If you can help with even $10, that will make a big difference to me and my situation right now.
Thank you so much.

After one cosmic-sized weekend that was a lot more difficult than I honestly expected, I am doing "alright" in this now moment. I have some hurdles ahead of me, as I had my wallet stolen from me (so have to replace my ID.... somehow). But overall, for those who worry about me, I just wanted you to know I'm doing "okay." I don't really have many major complaints at the moment. I could certainly use a donation if you're in a place where you could offer such. Besides that, I'd certainly appreciate a prayer or moment of silence on my behalf. I find that to be very powerful and effective...

Happy June friends and family.
Just a quick update: life is going okay, for the most part. I'm pretty much broke, and I have no idea how I will pay everything from medical expenses and meds to just the house stuff, but I'm in a place mentally and spiritually that I "feel" okay about that reality. I'm updating in the hope that anyone who had planned on donating to my project but didn't get around to it might be willing to do so now. I'd sincerely appreciate it.

You could get food items through pantries and stuff like that. Alos go to Salvation Army. Do your research online there is a lot of valuable information out there. You just have to look for it. Good luck with this. I hope this helps.
