Hi. My name is Carolyn and I am in need of some financial assistance.
I have type 1 diabetes and have heart disease. I have 5 stents and terrible neuropathy in both my legs and hands. I am on disability and my husband is retired and has lost his sight and hearing and I am his caregiver. Even though I have medicare I have a mountain of medical bills and debt. My first husband used to abuse me and I left him with two small children. I put myself through college and worked many jobs just to keep us going. I never received any help from him and I always was so proud of the way i raised my kids by myself. After spending way too much time working and away from my kids I lost my 19 yo daughter in a car accident that she wasn’t driving, this happened 16 years ago and life has never been the same.
Everyday I fight to live and just keep drowning. Every birthday, every holiday, she was my best friend.
Now my husband has started hitting me, I never thought it would get to this but now I have to figure out a way to leave him as i believe he has bipolar disease. Financially I am stuck. I had a healthcare career until I developed a charcot foot because of the neuropathy and diabetes.
I have an idea about how to become financially independent from him but I would need alot of help with money. I love to quilt. I love to longarm quilts. I have always had this dream of renting a house with enough space to get a longarm and start my own business. I also would like to start donating the quilts that i make to children in hospitals fighting diseases.
This might just be a dream but at first paying my bills is important to me but limited income and very high interest rates prevents me from doing so. Help would be appreciated so much.
I have tears streaming down my face because I can’t believe I am asking…actually (begging) for money.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for taking the time to listen.
