Dear everyone who is reading this. Please help me. I am in a situation where I have to ask anyone out there for help and that is how desperate I am.
Here’s my story, a year of hardship
A year ago my mother was admitted to the hospital due to a severe asthma attack followed by a cardiac arrest. This was an unexpected medical emergency. It was so bad that she has to end up In hospital for over two months going on three. She wasn’t a citizen or resident in Australia, so her bills were in huge amount. This where our bills started stacking up, and we cannot keep up.
I had to put my life on hold on paused to perform as a caregiver for her in which all my bills were overdue and went to debt collections. I need help for both our bills to be paid.
This was the hardest decision I have to make in my whole entire life was Choosing my life or my mothers. It took me nights and days to think of what’s the right thing to do, and it came down to choosing her. No one will ever know or understand the struggle was real at the time and up to now and how it was like for us. However, the only thing I know is to choose what’s most important and that’s life. Being a caregiver and not earning any money was hard but I did it because of love, care and respect.
Today my mother is getting better and that is a massive achievement Therefore I am now looking for job but still no luck. The debt collectors are after me now to make payments asap, or it will go to illegal activity in the next few weeks if I don’t pay something and I don’t want this to happen. This is why I am writing this and seeking help. The little change you give it will help change and save us.
My mother’s bills is between $300,000 – $250,000 all for her medical bills at two hospitals.
My bills is between $30,000 – $20,000 for bank, phone, medical bills at hospital and money owes to government.
