Hello world. I have a rather fraught history with medical bills. My story starts when I was 3 months old. I started having seizures at 3mo and they continued until I was 26. They got worse with puberty and from then on it was a losing battle. All my doctors when I was young told my parents that they were idiopathic. Basically, they had no idea what was causing them. After puberty I was taken to the hospital almost every time I had a seizure. My doctor would send me to the ER to get CT scans done and make sure that my brain wasn’t being damaged. I spent about 1 day a week in the ER FROM AGES 14 – 22. At 22 I finally found a doctor who believed me enough to run a bunch of tests. We did all sorts of labs and workups and they found nothing. Then my OBGYN decided to run an ovulation test where we monitored my cycle and such for a year. Now, my cycle could be 2 weeks apart or 6 months. They discovered I had PCOS (there were a ton of cysts on my ovaries) and that I wasn’t ovulating. So they decided to do an allergy test and lo and behold, I’m allergic to estrogen. The doctor told me that 22 was too young to have the necessary surgery. I had to wait until I was 26 and even then the doctor was hesitant. I ended up getting a total hysterectomy which, thankfully, stopped the seizures. The surgery threw me into surgical menopause. That’s right, at 26 I was going through menopause. After the seizures stopped we were able to actually look at all aspects of my body. It came to light that I have fibromyalgia, a whole host of mental disorders, scoliosis, osteoporosis and that my mouth didn’t develop properly. No one paid much attention to my mouth growing up as my seizures were of a more pressing concern. My dentist has informed me that my lower jaw didn’t develop properly and that as a result, too much pressure was on my teeth in too small of an area. One day I bit down on an apple and 4 teeth just shattered. The pressure literally got to be so much that when my dentist was trying to pull the broken teeth, more were shattering. I’m 31 years old now and I have been through menopause, am trying to get fitted for dentures, have over $40,000 in medical bill debt, and have no viable option of getting out of debt anytime soon. Attached is a screenshot of my credit report that shows individual balances and which collection agency has them. There are many more pages but this is the start. At the end of this post will be a paypal link if anyone would be willing to help. I’m not expecting anything. Just being able to tell my story in the hopes that it helps someone helps me feel better. If you are willing to help, Thank you. If not, thank you for reading my story.
