My name is Samantha. I am twenty-five years old and have been uninsured for many years. I have recently enrolled into an insurance program that is offered by my employer, but as we all know, there is a deductible that must be met before insurance will pay out. My current deductible is $2500.00. This is a reasonable amount, but it is still a strain financially as I do not qualify for any assistance with medical care. My call center job is, modest, at best.
I fall into a gray area where I barely make too much to qualify for government assistance, but not enough to afford private insurance. I do not have children or other dependents, but I do not make enough to support myself as a single person and cover medical expenses without going further into debt. That is why I am asking for your help.
I have been diagnosed with depression and bipolar disorder, both of which have not been treated since I was eighteen. I am at a place where I am desperate for help to cope with and treat these disorders as they have impacted my ability to function normally at home, socially, and at work. I have not been insured for several years because I simply can not afford it, as stated above. At this point, it is crucial to my physical and mental health to seek treatment. Possibly even my survival.
I do not receive financial help from family or a partner. Treatment and medication for these illnesses is extremely costly and I am not in a place where I can afford deductibles and co-payments along with costs of living without borrowing.
I am going to make the assumption that some of you also suffer from mental illness that has impacted the quality of your life in some way. Know that if you are going to donate, you will be effecting my life in a very positive way. Any help is greatly appreciated and will certainly be for a good cause.
