First, I wanted to thank you for reading this and I feel awful that I can’t help others that are on this site looking for help. About 7 years ago I lost a very good job because the company sold and they didn’t need me any longer. I was out of work for a year trying to find a job with a comparable salary, but ended up having to take a huge pay cut just to get back into the work force. Shortly before I lost that job, I had a wrist surgery that was supposed to be a simple removal of a ganglion cyst, but the doctor accidentally cut the tendon to my thumb. He realized he did this a few days later because I couldn’t bend my thumb. He then shipped me off to another doctor to fix what he did. The second doctor was able to reattach the tendon by redirecting it. I had to go through a year of physical and occupational therapy to get some of my mobility back. I not only had to pay for both of the surgeries after what insurance/COBRA covered, but I also had to pay $50 per therapy visit which occurred 2 to 3 times per week for a year. That was the beginning of me falling behind financially and when I thought things were finally going to look up something else would knock me back down. Later on I had to have two major surgeries for the removal of fibroids in my uterus. The first surgery they removed them so I still had the chance to have children, but the fibroids returned so I had to have a laparoscopic hysterectomy. I was never able to have children, so I had a couple rescue cats instead. Over the years as they aged their health deteriorated so I had to have them euthanized. Besides past due medical and vet bills, my car broke down so after I spent money on the mechanic trying to figure out what was wrong with it; they were never able to get it running again. I ended up having to by another used vehicle. I’m behind on all of my bills, previous credit card debt from medical and vet bills and car repair bills, I’m behind in utilities. I’m trying to not buy too much for food because I can’t afford to lose my apartment or my car. I’ve always been the type of person that would be there to help everyone in need including animals, but now that I need help, my friends and family won’t or can’t help me. I don’t spend money on going out to eat or for entertainment, on new clothes or shoes. All of my money goes to paying what is necessary to keep my current rescued cats fed, a home over our head and my car. I’m not looking for someone to help pay off my credit card debt. There is too much of that and my credit has already been shot with everything going to collections. I’m just looking for someone to help get me caught up so I can start living paycheck to paycheck again until I can find a higher paying job or a side job. I need about 2,000 to 5,000 to get my head above water so I can pay past due bills, eat and keep a home over my head. When the doctor cut the tendon to my thumb I was devastated and mad that I had to pay money to try to fix what he messed up, but they have you sign a waiver in case there are complications. It seems like everything went downhill from that point forward. I just need a break so I can refocus my attention on helping others again. Thank you for reading and God Bless.
