I’ve never had to do this before but have been put in a extremely uncomfortable situation and am in genuine need of some help. I’ve been working in the building trade industry in various sectors for some years now starting when I was 15 (26 currently). Despite a desire to work in other industries it was where/how I was brought up and ended up staying with it due to various life factors. This work has always been extremly physical which, while exhausting, is not usually an issue.
That said, on 05/05/23 I was at work with my company when I took a fall to the ground. I managed to land perfectly wrong and snapped my right clavicle clean in two. It being not a small break, after seeing an orthopedic at the emergency rooms reccomendation, I underwent surgery to have it repaired.
Surgery went well and I am currently in the process of recovering as of writing this 05/19/23. Issue is this:
While I am insured, I am still awaiting the hearing to be told what I will ultimately have to pay. Currently there is just under $60,000 worth of charges on my Atrium health portal. I do not expect to have to pay this entire amount as I have a solid insurance program that should hopefully take good care of me.
The biggest problem is now I am currently unemployed. I have only around 3,000 in savings and now am not pulling in an currency. I live with my girlfriend (who also works) in a 2 bedroom apartment in North Carolina where we pay $2,000 a month for rent. I am working to hustle and find a way to start bringing in some money (learn new skills, find non-physical employment, etc). Whats hurting me is the feeling that I have a financial gun to my head and a timer thats ticking down.
Throughout my life I’ve often worked 60/hr weeks at $20/hr or less. This was never my wish just circumstantial. I’ve been in survival mode for quite a long time but was at the very least surviving. Right now however I genuinely feel that I could be washed away very easily.
I am writing this in the hopes that if there is even one person out there that is truly abundant financially who would be able to help me without hurting themselves, if they would be willing to do so. Any amount would be greatly beneficial but if I could obtain the blessing of at least around $10,000 I would feel generally a thousand times more comfortable knowing that I at least have a few months of rent/groceries/bills covered while I seek a solution for myself and my partner. Currently the burden is falling on her entirely and I can tell she is stressed and strained but she is holding up well.
Again I’ve never had to ask for help like this but this is a desperate time for me. If there is anyone out there willing to help please reach out to me.
