My name is Krissy and I am writing this in the small chance someone can help me out for a bit.
The last few years have been very tough, but last year was the toughest. I lost my husband unexpectedly in May, my dog in August and my dad in Sept. I had to sell my home, which we just bought 13 months before, so I didn’t get a gain on it. Plus had to pay closing costs and bills. After my husbands death, I found out that he had run up bills at a few places and took out credit cards and quick loans. He also cancelled his life insurance policy, so he left me with nothing.
In 2011 my husband was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor and had to have a 23hr surgery and stay in the hospital for 3 months. Plus then he had to have aftercare. Even though we had insurance, it was out of network and we went in debt, to the tune of 1.7 million. We tried to pay it down instead of filing bankruptcy, but in Feb of 2015, I had a small stroke and was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I ended up having to quit a great job and tried to find the right treatment. On top of the MS, I was also diagnosed with John Cunninghams Disease, so treating me took a while to find what worked. In 2016, my husband had to have neck surgery and it did not go well and he had a spinal cord infection after the surgery and then went into a severe depression and had to be committed to a treatment facility for 3 months. I was working part time to keep us afloat. in 2018 he needed back surgery and it never seemed like it worked great and he had to keep getting shots for the pain and the depression wasn’t getting any better. He was hospitalized 2 more times. In 2019, we filed for bankruptcy and sold our home that my husband grew up in and moved into a small apt our friends rented us for cheap. My husband couldn’t work anymore and I could only work part-time as he had a very hard time when I wasn’t there.
With the help of my parents, we were able to buy a place that a friend owned and try to start again. Unfortunately, my husband’s depression took over bad and he was having a hard time. He passed away on May 8th.
I decided that I was not able to keep the house and I was going to start a house/pet sitting service. I was just getting started when my dad who was my best friend, died from Covid. He was vaccinated and had his booster, when he got it and it caused a inner ear infection and he got vertigo and fell and broke his hip and had to go to a hospital in Milwaukee, 250 miles away because of no beds anywhere. He lasted a week.
After that, I decided I needed to go away on my journey. It was great for a while. I had most great clients, but there were a few people who never paid me and I had to use up my savings which was not a lot. I had a friend in San Diego, so I moved in with him and took a temp job at SeaWorld. It was great for the first 2 months and then he started acting very controlling and wanting more money for rent and is just verbally abusive.
I have a bit of money saved, enough to drive back to WI, and I can stay at my nieces and a friend for a bit, but need money to pay for the apartment I found that is available June 1st.
Thank you all for reading my story and anything anyone can do for me, including prayers will be very much appreciated.
