Hi, I’m Jacqueline…and I’ll state again, I never thought I’d be here…asking for money. I’m putting aside all my pride and ego, because I’m so lost at this point, I don’t want to stoop to something I’ll regret later on in life.
I’m a 24 year old girl, well, 25 in 2 weeks…with Major Depressive Disorder Which I’ve dealt with for the past 8 years. Everything started last November…I had a good paying job, I was happy. I then lost my health insurance, because I’m considered “medically frail and disabled” I had always been protected under my state’s health program…they discontinued coverage because of my income being over the limit. Mind you, I was being paid well for my family and I’s lifestyle, which is pretty humble and simple, so $15 an hour was decent for me.
Once I lost my insurance, I lost my ability to see my psychiatrist, and my GI…I also have severe chronic IBS, which needs to be kept under control. I used credit to cover medical costs for the first couple of weeks after losing coverage while I tried my best to regain it. Well…those credit cards soon got maxed. I no longer could afford my medication for anything, or even my appointments. I started getting really sick at work by January, extremely sick. I was in so much pain all the time because of my horrible GI issues, and mentally I was distraught. I started having withdrawal symptoms from not taking my anti-depressants, I started missing work, and the cycle began. I ended up losing my job in march of 2019.
I started struggling further and further..I take care of my mother who is very ill. She has rheumatoid arthritis, and I take care of my younger brother who is also disabled. My mother and I recently got bronchitis somehow, and I’m freaking out because I don’t know where or how to get money anymore. I’ve done the loans, I’ve pawned what I could, but nothing is really helping me ge out of this loan. I’m terrified of losing my home…my credit took a hit..it went from 700 down to under 500 in just the past couple of weeks. So when I saw I’m spiraling, I literally mean it. I’m behind on ALL my payments, including mortgage, car note(I only owe 2k on my little car and cant even make a single payment on it) I need medication mostly for my mother right now, I can hold off for a while, but she’s too delicate in health(yes even more than myself) and I’m afraid for her.
I just started working..literally just yesterday..I have 2 more weeks before I get paid, and I’m not even making as much as I originally was, but I don’t think she can wait for medications any longer.
I’m still working my insurance issues out..(Indiana freaking sucks) I have an appointment today because they need to process me through as a disabled working person..because they ‘forgot’ to do so years ago.
I don’t even care about the rest of my debt with my medical bills…I just want to get my mom to get proper care…she almost died pneumonia when I was 11, I don’t want her to go through that again.
All in all, it’s May 28th 2019, I’m asking for donations of any amount. I can tell you all the debt I’m trying to clear before my house or car get taken…my car being the only ride I have to continue working.. I owe 2100 on my car. my Mortgage is behind $1K, my living bills and medical bills add up to about $11K. I’m not asking for you to donate 11K, I’m only asking for help with whatever is possible…even a $1 helps. I’m so desperate and depressed and I feel useless, I don’t understand why this happened to us at such a horrible time. My Bank account is approx. -$140 ..in RED.
And as I’m typing this my mother just asked me if I could take her to the hospital tomorrow morning if she doesn’t feel better…which I obviously will, but I know she’s worried about the cost it will incur..
If you’re reading this, I don’t know if you’re legitimate, if there are any kindhearted people in online that could see this and help, so I’m begging you….please help me out this crisis. I’ve done everything I can and continue to do so. I just need help with paying bills, I’ll be attaching pictures soon, there are so many bills its ridiculous. I pray this gets to the right person, I hope it touches your heart and if you can’t donate, that’s okay, just share for me please. I’m truly lost at this time, I’ve no other idea what to do.
Thank you for reading through this, it really means the world to me at this moment in my life.
