I am 31 years old and for the first time in my life I can’t see any way out. After getting Covid during the beginning of the pandemic and having to remain in the hospital for over 8 weeks the resources I had began to quickly disappear. I never earned much and tried to save what I had, but one catastrophe is enough to swallow it all. My workplace let go of most people during that time and I can’t find a new job because I am still greatly struggling with post-covid health problems. The health problems grew worse by the day. I can barely breath when walking stairs, I developed heart problems from Covid and nothing seems to help. I tried to get through this with my own savings but I quickly ran out. I have no funds left and the medical bills keep piling up. I can’t get even the smallest loan anywhere because I have no securities and there is no one else I can ask for help. Asking the internet for help is now my last resort, I have no other options and I honestly don’t know how to continue on. The medical bills alone are around 10.000 and I have no way of paying them. On top of that I have overdue rent of 2000 to pay or I will be homeless and sick in a few weeks.
To add to the injury I had to give my 13 year old cat away to a friend because I could no longer afford taking care of her. She helped me when my depression started to get out of hand, but with how things are now the only thing I could do was make sure that she is safe and cared for. If the impossible happens and I recover from this I might be able to take her back. I miss her more than anything.
I don’t have the option to go to my parents, because my father is a raging alcoholic and I am not save with them. Most other people including my boyfriend decided that a sick depressed person is too much to handle, which pushed me even further into desperation. For the first time in my life I feel truly helpless and I can see no way out. I always tried to be the one who helps people but now all I can do is ask for help myself and hope somebody hears it and my life does not end here.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. If you have any means to help I would be forever grateful. If you are also struggling I hope you make it through it and find help.
