2 years ago, I wanted to die. I was struggling with the death of my best friend since childhood, as he was killed by a drunk driver at the age of 18. Not only that, but I was coming to terms with the fact that I was gay and my parents weren’t accepting. I have depression and anxiety disorders, I was being crushed with the weight of college, I was constantly self harming, and I had survived an abusive relationship where I was emotionally and sexually abused. I wanted everything to be over, but I stuck around. Instead of killing myself that day, I went and sought help at the local hospital. They put me on suicide watch in the psych ward and I got counseling, but they mostly just drugged me and sent me on my way 3 days later. However I determined that day that I was going to keep going. I had to. I wanted to see my future, and I am very glad I did. I have a beautiful 7 month old daughter and a wonderful partner. However, we don’t make much money. I took a few months off work because it was cheaper to stay home with the baby until we found an affordable babysitter. We finally did, and now I am finally about to start a job I am excited about. It still doesn’t pay a lot of money, but it will be enough. Unfortunately, that medical bill is catching up with me. It has been sent to collections and referred to a lawyer who I am afraid is going to sue me for it. This will result in a judgement against me and ruin my credit, garnish my wages, and put us in financial ruin. All I want to do is get this debt paid off before they try and take it to court, so we can start fresh. I never thought seeking help to stay alive would cost me the way it did. I am requesting only the amount of the bill, 2000 dollars in order to pay it off and get peace of mind for me and my family. I want to give my daughter the best future possible, and I know this will hurt our finances including when we try to get a house, etc. I will absolutely pay it forward once we are back on our feet. I am only asking for help because it is a time sensitive issue. Please, please help me secure my families financial stability and give us this chance and we will put that good back out into the world.

Anything helps, I am so grateful for anyone able to provide my family with this opportunity. 2000 dollars is a lot to ask for, but it’s the price I had to pay to stay alive I suppose. I just need help for this emergency.
