Hello everyone. I never thought I would have to do something like this, but I have no other option. Before I explain, yes I have a job, and no I’m not lazy. I’m a juvenile diabetic who simply needs some help with medical bills and paying off a loan. Millions of people around the world live with diabetes or know someone living with diabetes. The majority have type 2 diabetes, but an important minority have type 1 diabetes. Contrary to popular belief, type 1 diabetes is not a childhood disease. It occurs at every age, in people of every race, and of every shape and size. In fact, there are more adults who have type 1 diabetes than children, although it was previously known as juvenile diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin at all.. Insulin and other supplies are not cheap, even with insurance. Then if you ever get sick, it’s multiplied times 10 because diabetes affects multiple aspects of your body and life. On top of that I have other supplies and medicine I have to take and use along with my insulin. Without these things, I simply wouldn’t be able to survive. I also pay rent and many other bills, so yes I’m financially struggling. I have dealt with this disease since I was 7 years old. I’ve gone from 5 shots a day to using a new insulin pump. It can be manageable, but the financial burden is starting to take a toll on me in many different ways. A surprisingly large number of people with diabetes are using less insulin than prescribed because of the rising cost of the drug, putting themselves in danger of serious complications. Everyone with Type 1 diabetes needs to take insulin. It is just sad. And this isn’t a disease that is reversible or can be managed lightly. You have to watch yourself every single minute of every day. You have to watch what you eat, how you function on a daily basis. It can be exhausting mentally and physically. I have had a lot happen in my short 24 years of life. From losing my dad at a young age, to being diagnosed with diabetes so young, abusive relationships, you name it. Anything helps, and thank you in advance to anyone who is willing to help a girl get back on her feet and deal with this disease the best I can.
My name is Megan. I never wanted to be the person to ask for help from anyone. I’ve always worked hard to be independent and to take care of myself.
Growing up, my mother was always a controlling person. I was kicked out at 16 simply because I didn’t want to sit at home one day. I was kept away from the world. I was never allowed to go and do things with friends. She kicked me off of her insurance at 18 and I managed to get my own place, two hours away after everything I went through with her.
After recent hard spots in a toxic relationship, my family convinced me to move back with her. While away and not having health insurance, I got into a car wreck. I had to go to the hospital and I have $8500 in hospital bills. After moving back, I tried to find a job but my mother made it difficult. I have two dogs I love and try to care for. She will not allow me to leave them for more than an hour, making it difficult to find any sort of work. I’ve fallen being on car payments totalling $1500 as well.
She’s requesting rent from me now and with no one to turn to and already being $10000 in debt with just two things, I may be out of a roof over my animals and my head. I’ve been trying to talk to her, trying to call family for help, but with no where to turn, I found this.
I have severe anxiety and severe depression that I need to get help with and medication for, but with no insurance, it’s only a dream. I want to get my life back on track but I have no place to start so I thought I might start here. If you would like to help me in any way, it would be more than appreciated and I couldn’t thank God enough for any form of help I can get in this current situation.
My mother, 58 years old, has type 2 diabetes. She has been a diabetic for over 23 years, and shows no signs getting better. She raised my two siblings and I on her own all of our lives, she’s our world. She recently underwent surgery two days ago for her to start her Dialysis, because her kidneys are starting to fail which is very upsetting for us as her children to deal with because she’s helped us all of our lives ,and we can’t financially help her because her debt from her medical bills is to far out our hands to handle. I’m her youngest son and youngest child. I have a 3 year old daughter my self, and fiancé. My fiancé and siblings are trying to help keep my mothers debt to a minimum but with her having to do dialysis every 4 days she isn’t healthy enough to keep her job, and is 2 years away before being eligible for her to receive her retirement funds. Please assist me and my small family help assist my mother it’s hard paying for my mothers bills, medical bills, and on top of that my daughters daycare and my own bills, a young man and his small family can only do so much. Not to mention me and my fiancé used our entire savings,for our down payment for us to get our first house but that was spent on my mother’s expensive medical bills. Please help us sincerely, we won’t don’t have any extra cash for food, utilities, her house note or her upcoming medical bills and no savings for our first house down payment.
I am in debt due to recent medical and psychological costs. This debt increases with each day that I cannot pay anything back. I have suffered from co-morbid mental health issues for over 13 years, which have made living a normal life impossible for me. I have been diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa, adult Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, complex trauma, Borderline Personality Disorder, substance abuse, anxiety and depression. I have been in and out of hospitals for these, as well as life threatening situations that I have been in. My health issues have meant that I have been unable to work and am currently unemployed. I am 28 years old, but I still live with my parents for reasons of cost and care. I am currently in debt over $800, attributed to hospital excess and psychologist ($170 per hour) and psychiatrist ($170 per 15 minutes) bills. I have been unable to do a grocery shop for myself this week as I have not had any money. My mother is also currently out of work due to recent hospitalizations with depression.
I often feel as though I have been dealt a very unfair life. As a teenager I was showing such promise of intellect and was building my vibrant personality. This began to derail after a couple of detrimental traumas. Since then I have experienced countless traumas, acts against my person. These have crushed my self esteem and my beliefs that the world can be an alright place. I have learnt that it can be dangerous and forever plotting against me. I hate living with fear.
The cost of having an illness in this country has proven astronomical and with little positive return. I am slowly but surely making progress this year as I believe I found the right psychologist and psychiatrist suited to work with me.
I am begging not only for money, but for someone or some few to show me that there are decent people out there who care enough to take the time to read this and hopefully be impacted in some way. I am begging that even if you do not or can not donate towards my bills, at least let this teach you that there are people out there who are really struggling and really suffering and really scared of this world. I am begging for those of you who can spare ANY loose change to do so. I would be irrevocably grateful. I am trying so hard to construct a somewhat decent life for myself, but money worries and issues make everything that much more difficult.
First of all, I want to say thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this. Let me start off by saying this is the first time I’ve ever done something like this- I like to count my blessings and not the struggles. A bit about me, and my diagnosis: When I was 26, didn’t realize how good I really had it. I had a great job (lots of stress and responsibilities for someone my age) and I had finally found something I was truly passionate about that helped me escape the stressors that came with my job…I started going to circus school in my spare time- I was taking classes for aerial acrobatics, trapeze, Lyra, Ariel silks etc. i absolutely loved being in the air. I was happy. Then my grandmother who lived with me my entire life had passed away….she was very “blunt” and before she had passed she had told me “out of all the grandkids- your the weirdest (lol) but you, my dear, are going to make something of yourself if you keep embracing what you love”…next to her hospital bed she had a picture of me flying through the air on a trapeze with my best friend and that picture went with her into the ground lol. Several days after she passed I experienced what I thought was a “severe panic attack” and I ended up in the hospital that night. I had been diagnosed with “panic disorder”. I then continued to have the panic attacks about 1-2 times a month following the first episode. They were awful, uncontrollable, unpredictable, and embarrassing. I would hyperventilate, my vision would go out completely and everything would get very bright. But honestly, it was nothing I couldn’t handle. I decided to move out of my moms and get an apartment closer to my circus school. And I had a vision for myself- i would live alone in an apartment with no furniture (lol not thr typical vision) and I would have my Lyra (circus ring)hanging from the ceiling and another room with just a yoga mat so I could meditate. That’s kind of what happened but I ended up with a bunch of roommates (lol) and taking in too many people/ “friends” to try to give them a calm place to live during hard times. I started going into debt. It was like financially supporting a small family. Anyways, my panic attacks became severe and the company I worked for was going into the ground and I could feel it. I put in my two weeks at work and was paid out for my 2 months of vacation I had saved up and was going to use that time to find what truly made me happy. I started my job at a spa and I focused on healing peoples aches and pains naturally with aroma therapy, reiki (energy healing), ect. I was happy but it didn’t pay the bills. Financially things got worse. I was about to lose my apartment. Then I reconnected with my first boyfriend I ever had. He had been going through a divorce and severe depression- he ended up moving in, and fixing my life. He moved us out into a better neighborhood (so it was better situation for his beautiful little girl as well) and he continues to live in an apartment with no furniture and my circus ring hanging from the ceiling. October of 2017- I found a new job- to help me fix my credit, and I would be making almost as much as my first and I would have my health benefits back. I felt like I was finally fixing every and on my way to “adulting” properly. March 22nd of 2018- I ended up going to the emergency room with a severe migraine. I thought I had “meningitis”. I demanded a cat scan of my brain even though they wanted to just me anxiety meds…..the doctor came into my room after my cat scan and said “sorry, were going to need to transfer you to another hospital you have a lesion on your brain”…..my heart dropped. I thought maybe it could be an infection? Or an error? A few days later I went for the mri. A few days after that a nurse came in and said “you have a brain tumor we need to move your rooms so there will be more doctors to help you”…..I’ll never forget being pushed into that hallway reading the sign that “oncology”……I realized it was the cancer hallway…..I thought it was a mistake….I felt fine, so what If i get migraines sometimes and have panic attacks sometimes ….I’m active- I’m healthy- I didn’t feel like I had cancer…..i was trying to have a baby…..I was scared I would never experience being a mom. I was there for a week and had a team of doctors coming into my room talking about brain surgery and chemo and radiation and “treatment”… I was then discharged. I went to a couple neurology appointments, met up with a few neurosurgeons- was told even just for a “biopsy”, the “access point” into my brain going through my temporal lobe would most like cause permanent side effects and the “panic attacks” I had been having were really non- convulsive seizures the entire time….so the seizures may increase after the surgery…and I may lose my sense of balance. I took the “wait and see” approach because BALANCE is all I do….I wouldn’t be able to continue my passion performing aerial acrobatics. They had scheduled a follow up mri for a few months down the road to see how fast the cancer was spreading. I started on a raw vegan diet and was determined to heal myself with my food. Long story short…. my follow up mri was approaching and I wasn’t feeling so great…..I then recently found out….I’m pregnant. I’m currently 13 weeks. I’ve missed a ton of work because it’s a high risk pregnancy as well as trying to keep seizures under control without medication….I have no more personal time off….so when I miss work- I don’t get paid. My medical bills from all of this have been piling up…..my normal bills are piling up….and my checks are now smaller……I can’t reach out to family….because I haven’t told them I have brain cancer….because I want to be happy about my pregnancy and I don’t want the focus to be on the cancer I want the focus to be on being happy I’m having a baby. I’ve been stuck in a never ending cycle of payday loans….and I can tell my boyfriend is struggling. We can’t make our rent this week…..and are scared to see that eviction notice on the door….it’s been a financial struggle every day to “eat for two” in a healthy way……but I won’t give up. I would be eternally greatful for any help and I’m a firm believer in always “paying it forward”. Thank you so much for your time.
Ive included my mri picture of my brain “glioma”. It is the illuminated “lemon” shaped mass.
I’m hoping to raise $2,000 for rent, medical bills, and my new baby to come- but of course anything is very much appreciated :)
taking donations at:
After my son died, I became very depressed and had a hard time functioning. I didn’t keep good track of my bills or expenses. In addition to medical bills and funeral expenses, I spent more money than I should have on convenience food and dining out because I didn’t have the energy to cook for my family. I took on more debt than I should have. Then when unexpected bills came up (dentist, car repair, flat tire, surgery for daughter, etc.), the only way to cover them was to take on more debt. Because my credit was now bad, high-interest loans and payday loans were my only available option.
I signed up with a debt settlement company, but they are unable to settle my high-interest loans because the companies will not work with them. My husband is unable to work so I now have more bills than I can afford to pay each month, and I don’t know what to do. I have $9,100 in high-interest loans that total $1,100 in minimum payments each month. I’m also paying $1,230 each month to debt settlement companies for the ones they are covering, $200 monthly car payment, along with living expenses (rent, utilities, gasoline, food). I struggle to pay these bills each month and can’t handle any extra expenses without taking on more debt.
I feel stupid, horrible, embarrassed, and guilty for getting into this situation. I’m under a lot of stress and feeling hopeless. I’m seeking help for the following two items.
- $200 for new glasses for my daughter. She had eye surgery and needs to be fitted for new glassses after the surgery, but I don’t have money for the appointment or the glasses.
- Paying down a high interest debt with a balance of $3,300. It has a 240% interest rate and $580 minimum monthly payment. $540 of the monthly payment goes to interest.
I promise to pay it forward in the future when I am able. Thank you for considering.

Where do I start?? Luck hasn’t been with me at all. …93 we had a house fire. Had bad insurance and was forced to live in it …96 I had to go back to work. To help pay bills. Then I hurt my back on the job. Compensation was nothing. Like 35 a week So I started doing crafts and babysitting ….2010 I went to the ER. Had lots of pain. Found out I had kidney cancer. Renal carcinoma. Ended up going in for surgery and having my kidney removed. After a 12 inch incision, 62 staples. He was hopeful he got it all out. …2011 I finally settled with compensation and I took what money I had and invested in a repossessed double wide Yeah it took my money but I had a nice house to live in finally …..2012 I woke up and found I was hemorrhaging really bad. Went to the ER to find out I had cancerous fibroids. So I had a total hysterectomy and a bladder tvt. But my doctor got the tvt too tight and a week later of being home with a catherer, she had to do a revision on the bladder. ….2018. Still doing what crafts I can. Babysitting my grand daughter for little to nothing. I managed to save up enough to buy a used starter embroidery machine. One night while my daughter was here, the electric surged like 5 times. And the surge protector did not save my embroidery machine. I was heartbroken. I have a change in doctors since the one I had is teaching now. And the new one is not understanding at all. Since all of this my anxiety is off the roof. I’ve become a prisoner in my own house. I’m fine staying home. But my son in law was stationed at fort drum. And he said mom, this guy is relocating and has to sell his car. It was a 2007 Impala. But it was a nice car and something I could drive and be ok and not stress when I go somewhere and have it broke down. Well I hit a deer with it this spring. And since we only had liability insurance I didn’t have the money to get it fixed. My husband is working double time just to pay the bills. So I’m out my car and my machine. I was going deeper in that black hole. Then my doctor said I had three nodules on my right kidney. I could not believe it. Why me. But with my luck, of course. Already paying lawyers monthly for medical bills, no credit. My doctor decided to go in and cut off the nodules and since July I have been taking chemo pills and IV chemo once a week. But since I don’t have a car, I’m glad I have a understanding doctor and a nurse that comes to me. I’ve lost my hair like three times now. But my levels are going down. He wants me to get an mri to see what we are facing. But I don’t have a car. So as I sit here. I have been reaching out all over. https://www.facebook.com/events/262154201085450/?ti=icl I have a benefit I’m October. I’ve pleaded on my groups and had an angel in Washington state send me an embroidery machine. I’ve been asking Scrapbox if they would donate a sewing one, and they said they had to go up to the board, but it probably another no. I’ve pleaded with all kinds of car dealerships. No they only donate to organizations. I’m doing everything I can. I’m not sure of my future. But I’m trying to make what life I do have happier. I have three beautiful grand babies. One I watch. But two are two hours away. And each day that goes by, I miss time with them because of no car. I have a cousin in North Dakota that has an appliance store and he is working on sending me a washer and dryer. Mum asking everyone for things to finish my craft room. Since it’s just one thing in my life I enjoy and feel worth something when I do my crafts. So im pleading for any donations to help with medical I need donations for a car I need donations to finish my craft room Anything is better than nothing
I am a young woman and I have worked my whole life to be strong and independent. I have been estranged from my family since I was 18, due to unpunished abuse. Now, at 28, I have made something of myself, live below my means and even became a homeowner, however; late this summer, I had to be hospitalized for a pre-existing medical condition and lost my employment for not properly notifying them in time. After 9 years with the company, I found myself lost. I have had no luck finding a similar job, even drove through Uber and Lyft 40+ hours/week and picked up odd jobs to supplement my income as I continued my search. Even applying for entry level positions/jobs. Unfortunately, as my medical bills and living costs continue to grow and pile up, I am falling drastically behind as I have used all of my savings now.
Asking for monetary help with out being able to earn it is a very humbling experience. I intend to continue to pay it forward, as soon as I can and as I have done so in the past. Being a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and an independent female, I have always been a believer and supporter of all who just need a helping hand.
In conclusion, anything will help and I appreciate your time and generosity. I am currently struggling to pay over $10,000 in overdue debt with a negative bank account. I do not want to lose everything I worked so hard to achieve, it may not be much, but I did it on my own. Thank you and God Bless.
I’m $9000 in debt and I need help.
In the past two years my financial debts have spiraled and I’m overwhelmed and at a loss as to how to recover. In that time, I have had two surgeries and an ER visit. Both of my surgeries were related to cancer concerns and were proactive measures. That said, I am fortunate that my surgeries did not show further cancer development but their costs were high, and necessary. In between my two surgeries, due to financial and other stressors I called my nurse to explain some acute symptoms which lead to me to drive myself to the ER for a potential heart attack, though the results showed that it was not a heart attack and likely my body’s response to the extreme stress. It was also during this time that I, for the first time in my life, cried in a doctor’s office because I was just so overwhelmed. All of these have contributed greatly to my current situation. Further unexpected costs, such as over $900 for vehicle taxes in a new state, continue to add to a growing total.
The stress continues to burden my daily life and I know is negatively impacting my well-being. I am concerned that future medical issues could come up because of it. I can’t see past the current debt to make a plan for my future and I know I am falling behind with each passing day. My debt is $9000 from the past couple of years and I cannot successfully keep up with the payment plan. I started working when I was 16 and consider myself to be a hard worker but I’ve reached a point where going at it alone is not working anymore. As a single individual I have a limited number of resources and I know the longer this goes on the worse it will get. I can’t thank you enough for your consideration and I know that once this burden is lifted I will be able to help others as you have helped me. I truly believe that if we can’t pay it back, we can always pay it forward.
Let me tell you about my current situation. Back in July I found out that I was pregnant! My fiance and I were extremely excited to be starting a family and a future together. I went to my appointment and everything seemed to be going good! Then I went to work the one day and things were not so good. I started cramping and clotting. I made an appointment right away to get into my doctor. I went to the appointment and they did an ultrasound. The baby had stopped growing and the doctor said I was in early stages of miscarriage. I had lost the baby.
After this happened, I went into severe depression and my anxiety was worse than ever. I couldnt seem to want to move. I didnt want to see anyone or do anything. I literally couldnt even bring myself to shower or eat. It was the worst thing I have ever experienced. I took the time off work because I had paid vacation days and they seemed to understand the situation. I was institutionalized because my friends and family thought I was seriously going to hurt myself. I ended up losing my job, I cant seem to make ends meet. I am so far behind on bills and I just cant seem to bounce back. I have applied for loans, asked for help from people and I am seriously running out of options.
Just when I thought things were looking up, things just crash back down on me. Im in need of some help from someone and anyone. Please help get me back on my feet so I can try to have a fresh start. Anything is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
My story starts about 7 years ago my family was robbed from our home and we lost over $20,000. Now two years ago I found out I have brain tumors and lupus. Still living at home with the help of my parents, for medical expenses, and the problems I face everyday will these illnesses. I decided to further my career as an artist painting on canvas. I have always enjoyed creating art and I wanted o share it with the world. However this day and age getting your name out there can be difficult. Its hard enough when someone judges you based on how you look; but now I’m judged on my illnesses. Jobs will not hire me because I’m up front with them about my illnesses and the effects they have on me daily. I’m a hard worker creating my own website to try and sell my art as well as putting in my effort to create something unique every day. But, my illness, and medical bills are only adding up. My family tries to help me as much as they can with bills, but having an MRI every month among other doctors appointments is really putting a dent into the amount of money anyone has left. I try my hardest on all social media outlets to put my creations out there more for the world to see. But, I haven’t been able to make my big break yet. I hope on day I will be able to pay back my parents; not only for all of the money they have provided to be with all of my medical bills, but for their support, and patience while I work my way down the road to recovery. I ask for help from those who can with their donations. Without donors like you, I would be lost and not know where else to turn. Thank you for you support.
Please. Yes Please. That is the first thing I will say. Because I honestly need some help please. My fiancée Sophie, who is the love of my life and means everything to me, has gone into a psychiatric intensive care unit. Ever since I met her she has had some deep problems from her past, but it was never an a real issue until recently. However, they have now surfaced due to some family circumstances, meaning she needs a lot of help and support. I’m giving her everything I can: love, support, strength, but the one thing I cannot give is money and it kills me. Arghh! How I wish it was so easy to just have money to give, so that she could get the right help and support she so desperately needs.
It’s hard because I’m a scientist, but being in academia the salaries are very low – you don’t go into science for the money for sure! You go into science for the love of it and the curiosity. It’s long hours and very draining and what I have left I give all to Sophie, but it’s not enough. As much as I give her, I’m not trained to deal with what she is going through. I can’t even understand it and how hard it must be for her. I wish I could click my fingers and make it go away, but I cant. I wish I could think of some fast cure, but I cant. It doesn’t work like that as I’m sure you know!
There are twofold reasons that I need money. First is to be able to pay for the proper care for Sophie. Not only does she need good doctors and psychiatrists helping her through the recovery, but the cost of keeping her in a suitable psychiatric facility is costly. I’m already heavily into our savings and cannot last much longer. It will not be much longer before I cannot afford proper care for her and that really destroys me, because she deserves it so much and just because I’m not some corporate businessman or something shouldn’t mean she cant have the same care and treatment as the top people in society.
Second is of course the regular bills that I need to pay to live, such as rent, utilities and food. I’m trying to cut back and save everywhere I can, but its no where near enough. Everything I have spare is going towards Sophie’s care.
Ultimately the problems stem from her parents and her childhood. It’s not her fault. I wish I could change things, but I cant. We just have to deal with things as they come. You can choose your friends, but you cant choose your family!
Please, anything you can give will help me give Sophie the right care and support she needs to get back on track. Who knows, she could be back to the smiley and happy person I know she is one day. I hope so anyway.
My name is Vanesa, I’m an 18 year old girl from a small country based in europe called Slovenia. I live with my two brothers and my mom. To tell you why i need money for my mom i need to tell you about my past first.
It all started when i was little, my dad was an alcoholic, the heavy kind one, i remember flashes from my childhood, where he would throw things all across the room, he would beat my mom, he would beat my brothers and he sometimes beat me. My mom was too scared too leave all the time. My dad was cheating on her, her whole life and to this day i can’t understand why she stayed with him. Lots of nights i remember spending at my aunts beacuse it was too dangerous for us at home. A few years later, he decided to get recovery. I didn’t see him for two whole years. I missed him, he came back a changed man.
Our life was finally starting to be normal, our dad was back in our lives, he didn’t drink anymore he didn’t fight with mom anymore. We were happy, a happy family, till this year.
My mom earlier this year found out he is cheating on her, again. She couldn’t wrap her mind around it, she cried and cried for months, she was starting to go delusional. Our dad left us meaning our only source of income left us, and the biggest problem was my mom was starting to go delusional, she started seeing things and wasn’t well anymore.
We are currently staying at my aunt’s, my mom is unforutnately in a psyhiatric hospital, the bills are very expensive. My aunt works and i started to work this month. I still have too younger brothers who need to be taken care of and we still have to pay for my moms bills.
If you could possibly give us some money, even a small amount will be fine, we will all be grateful till forever. Please, make this family happy, even if that means you are just giving us an option to survive through the month. Thank you.
Any donation is appreaciated,
I could use all the help I can get. In July of 2016 I had a knee replacement. Everything seem to be going go and after two months of rehab I went back to work. After 4 days at work my knee was hurting to the point to where I had a had time walking. My store manager sent me to the emergency room and I found out I had a infection in my knee. They had to remove the knee and put spacers in my leg and I was put on 12 weeks of iv antibiotics. On my 3rd surgery the infection was still there so they changed out the spacers with new ones. Two months later I received my 2nd knee replacement, surgery number 4. This time I had 3 months of rehab and I went back to work. Everything was going fine. The same thing happened again. After working for 3 months my knee started hurting again. I had another infection. On December 16 2017 I had surgery number 5 to have the knee removed again. In March of 2018 I had the knee put back in.
This has left me and my family oweing so much money to everyone. I missed a total of two years of work.
My wife and son don’t deserve the headache that all of these surgery’s have caused them. I’m begging for all the help I can get to get back on my feet. I don’t want to lose my house. The two years out of work and the 6 surgery’s has left me and my family about 45,000 in the hole.
My name is Sora. I am an indie game developer for steam. I’ve made five small games in the past year. These games sell less then 5 dollars each and steam takes 30 percent of each sale. People complain about my games and always want them cheaper or them to be worked on more. They only buy them on sale or barely buy them at all. I hardly make any money for my hard work. I do work hard, updating non early access games frequently post release and trying to appease them. I make their lives easier while mine gets worse. Recently I was scammed by a false check and it bounced. I didn’t have any evidence so I had to pay it back. It was worth 2000 dollars. Years ago, before I was even able to comprehend the bills of the internet. My mom left a comcast bill with my name on it. I owed for years 200 dollars without me even realizing it. Here is the thing. I grew up around emotionally selfish people who have made me suffer at their expense all my life. They took everything from me, didn’t teach me a damn thing and expected everything from me. I lived their version of my life as I grew up. One day, when they all abandoned me. I was taken in by a friend about last year and I saved up my ssi money to try and afford an apartment. Apartments in Mass are super expensive and I had other things I had to pay for like my phone and the fact I was scammed out of 700 dollars last year. I also wanted to buy things. I finally had enough to move out and when I did thats when I found out about the comcast negative balance and shortly after was hit with the bounced check. My rent is basically the cost of what I get per month from ssi and my job’s funds have been going straight to my bank. I was cut from my vermont food stamps because I had to take shelter in mass. Now I get less money a month. I have cut down my debt from 2000 to just 500 dollars. I paid off the owed comcast debt even though it was my fault and I’ve been working really hard ever since. I cannot get a physical job for another year because I don’t have a mass ID and cannot get one until my vermont ID expires. So I am in debt, mostly starving myself trying to get by each month. On top of that, my eye sight is very poor and I can lose it within the couple of years. Yes, I have glasses, but no they don’t really help. I’m practically blind. I really could use lazer eye surgery. I live now in a dangerous neighborhood, all alone with no insurance and live beyond my means struggling to make ends meet. I don’t know how much I’d need to get out, but anything helps. I know I probably won’t get anything for writing all of this and I know the days are still going to continue with nothing changing. But I do hope that something can change for the better.
In the depths of darkness and in the sea of despair she rose up from a prison she once called home. In the purest of evil she frowned, in the happiest of moments she stood still, motionless but not yet emotionless. Death has called her countless times but even through that she did not die but yet became stronger. Her fate is what determines her future–her fate causes her to struggle to suffer nameless crimes. She does not claim the word “victim” but masters it into her own definition. Survivor. In this world pain and suffering is our middle name. In this world it is not just the essence of evil that claims our pain. It comes in different shapes and forms. It is also its victims that make our pain greater. Mother, father, sister, brother, friend, best friend, acquaintance, lover, stranger. Its power is limitless. We have two options do we choose to BE mastered or TO master?-Jonai Whitehorn
That is a poem I made in the midst of my depression and anxiety. I was diagnosed with “Clinical depression” and “Severe anxiety” over 4 years ago. Since then it has been a battle, attempting suicide more than I can count on both hands. I have struggled with self-harm, and I also have been in and out of hospitals for countless attempts of dying. I inspire to be more than my illnesses I inspire to overcome and be who I inspire to be. Which is a computer hardware engineer. Whether if its for my hospital bills, transportation fees for me getting to therapy, or for my school tuition anything will help.
My name is Marat.
In short, I will state my story.
In May 2016, I was admitted to the position of superintendent of the Kentech warehouse by their manager Mr.Derek .
So Derek accommodate me in the hotel room with the coordinator for transport name is Ruslan.
Everything was normal at first, I mastered the profession of a supervisor in a warehouse.
After a while, I noticed a negative attitude towards me employees and could not understand what was the matter.
I tried to be suave with all.
Somehow Ruslan suggested that I drink a shubat (Shubat is fermented horse milk).
I remember that he held two cups in his hand and simultaneously poured a shubat from the bottle and presented the nearest cup to me. I drank it and it seemed to me sour.
That night I had nightmares, and in the morning I ran to the toilet, I felt sick, I exhausted.
Immediately ran to the doctors, but no one accepted me, they all said that I was not assigned to them and did not even want to give a pill from the stomach.
It was in Tengiz in a shift camp early in the morning and I needed to urgently find a pharmacy.
As luck would have it, all the pharmacy kiosks were closed, I was dying, barely walked, then I happened to see on one of them a piece of tape, glued to the drugstore, swaying in the wind a paper with the phone number.
I was delighted and called this phone and a sleepy voice, explained how to get by.
He took out a box of pills, where I found the antibiotic levomycetin and activated charcoal.
But after 30 minutes, somewhere, the pills worked, and the long-awaited satisfaction came, I felt good, I drank coffee and started to perform my duties.
Subsequently, I began to suspect that Ruslan, in desperation, decided to poison me, since my health deteriorated after poisoning
Then after a while it got to me that this transport coordinator had problems with manager Derek.
And Derek using me wants to fire the transport coordinator and wants to put the other in his place.
Which of course he was infuriated and he began to think out how to get rid of me.
I became more cautious and began to fear employees of the company.
The following week, the coordinator made a second attempt at attacking my health
He brought a bottle of vodka, and also invited a friend a drinking companion, who looked already discharged and who began offering me a threatening tone the vodka.
I immediately figured out their plan which was to get me drunk and give up me to security police.
To get ahead of them, I began to pretend that I was calling the security service with complaints about them, when they saw this, they ran to the beds because the time was later.
After the end of my 28/28 on shift, I already start feels had dizziness at home.
I began to bleed be nose often, and a violent cough appeared.
I visited the doctor who ordered me to take tests, after which she could not tell me reason of sick.
I had panic attacks, I became afraid of going to bed, it lasted about a week.
In the end, I went to work a second time and found that the coordinator was fired, and for his place came his friend.
There was again on the horizon Mr.Derek, who said that I had not passed the probationary period and the contract would not be renewed.
As I understood, Derek used me and decided to dispose, since I had already performed the function of the lightning rod.
By law, at Kentech I had to work 2 watches, but they violated these laws forcing me to write a resignation letter of my own free will.
I stood staggering, I had high blood pressure, there was no money for treatment in this condition, I was kicked out of the Kentech company.
I wrote a complaint about the company to its founder John Kent, but he never answered.
Since then, I continue to be treated, I am already 53 years old, I send my resume to work everywhere, but so far without result.
I wish great happiness and good to all who help me and may God bless you!
hi, I’m a first year graduate student in a NY based medical school. I’m the first person in my family to graduate college and I want to be an oncologist. Growing up things were really uncertain in life because my father was not around and my mother has struggled with substance abuse my entire life. Recently, she had a seizure due to alcohol withdrawal and many medical complications which followed. While I was at school she allowed her health insurance to lapse, and so instead of paying for tuition on payment plan, I’ve been paying her medical bills, and can barely afford them. I have two jobs on top of school and am seriously facing having to drop out because of these financial issues. I’ve always wanted to see the positive even in situations that are trying, but I just don’t see a way out of this. My bank account is regularly overdrawn and I owe back bills for school, life and my mother’s medical expenses. My last hope is maybe the kindness of strangers. It’s sad to feel like you got so far and have to give in, but I’m also sure I would t be the first person to have to drop out of med school because of high costs. Also, my mother has been to rehab in the past but refuses to go again. We have a strained and difficult relationship and I’ve tried to manage or cure her illness many times. At this point I feel hopeless about that too. But she’s still my mom and I can’t just let her sit under all of this debt or worse, not try and get her medical care. I don’t have much but I’ve looked through some other campaigns here and donated a few dollars, maybe if we all pay it forward even a little bit everyone can end up where they need or want to be. Thank you.
Hi. I’m 43 years old and have been in poor health for the last decade. I’ve been a hair stylist most of my adult life and always worked. I suffered a massive stroke at 34 and spent 2 years recovering. My husband didn’t feel like supporting me through this so he divorced me. I also have severe asthma and COPD although I’m not a smoker. I lost my job and all my clientele not being able to work at all for 2 years. I’m as recovered from the stroke as I’ll ever be but my breathing gets worse by the day. I end up in the emergency room at least once a month. They stabilize me then write me prescriptions I can’t afford to fill. Without the medication my breathing deteriorates until I’m in the hospital again. I’ve applied for disability but I was denied. I apply every month for Medicaid but get denied every month. I have over 10k in unpaid medical bills.I’m asking for enough for 3 months of medicine. That would be long enough to be able to work long enough to save money to get them myself after that. I’ve always been a hard worker and self sufficient but being sick has taken that from me. I don’t even have the money for my living expenses like rent and food much less expensive medication. My prescriptions are over $600 a month. One inhaler alone is $425. Being sick has drained what little money I had. There’s nothing left. I’m asking for help so I can in turn better help myself and others. I need your help to get better and to just breathe. Thank you.
I was in an atv accident 10 years ago. I was 17 years old and, was extremely lucky to walk away alive. Unfortunately my brain and, eyes were my main injuries. I had a fourth nerve palsy in my left eye, requiring 2 surgeries over three years. I still have double vision when I look up, down and, to the sides. Forward is perfect though! There was shearing of my brain and, quite a bit of hemorrhaging in my frontal lobes. This has left me with a non-stop headache ever since. Some days get taken away from me because of the pain but, I have learned to deal with it for the most part. I try to live life as happy as possible and, smile through it every day! With all of that being said, I did not know at the time that when I turned 18 those medical bills were now my responsibility. I have tried making minimal payments over the years but, have never been able to come close to the end..let alone catch up. I am going back to college for electrical engineering. I have not let the pain stop me but, all of my previous medical debt plus tuition is overwhelming. I don’t like asking for help. I know others are in need more than myself but, I’m in a hole that I can not get out of. I want to move forward and, get rid of this burden. Anything would help. I would be forever grateful. Thank you for even taking the time to read my story. Stay safe!
Hello, my names Sabrina Murray and i’m 26 years old with a mental illness. So basically I have bipolar and anxiety, which I have been struggling with my whole life and has really caused me to destroy everything in my life over and over again. Making me have to start over with nothing, and this time i don’t know if I can do it.
The last 12 months, has been the most agony i have ever felt in my life and its left me broken inside. Starting at the beginning, I fell in love with my soulmate who ended up being toxic for me. Who caused me so much pain and suffering that i went into a deep depression that caused me to loose my job. Because I had no will or motivation to do anything let alone get out of bed. So then I couldn’t pay my half of my rent or bills and he refused to help me or seemed to not care that I was suffering. so I turned to self medicating which led to legal troubles that I couldn’t afford.
So then he tells me to pack all my clothes so that he can take me somewhere, which I did stupidly. And drove me to my moms and dropped me off and told me that he loved me but he wanted no part in my self destruction, then drove off in my car.
So i lost my job, got evicted, my ex boyfriend abandoned me and I lost my car. I have no money to fix the damages that I caused as well as money for food and and public transportation for interviews… But mostly, paying for my psychiatrist and medication so I can get better and start building a better future for myself and thats why im asking for 2,000 so that I can afford 6 months of appointments and medicine, while im working on getting a job and getting stronger mentally.
I never thought I’d do this. But I have nowhere else to turn.
My name is Julia and I’m a 22-year old girl from Sweden. For the past years I’ve been struggling with both my physical and mental health, but mostly on the physical part. I am diagnosed with something called Tietzes Syndrome which can be explained as an inflammation in the tissue around your ribs and lungs, and something called Modic type 1, which is vertebral endplate changes which leaves me in constant pain.
When I was around 13 years old, I started getting extreme pains in my chest, mostly on the left side which often radiated out to my left arm. Me and my family did take it lightly, and just considered it to be “growing pains” you get when you go through puberty and your body changes fast, and much for that matter. Deep inside I think I already know that something was wrong, but many of the people around me told me that I was probably just “making it up” and that it would settle soon.
It didn’t. Fast forward a year and the what I would call “cramps” hadn’t gotten any better at all. I’m 14 years old and supposed to love life. Before I started getting these pains I was an active, loving and healthy teenager, but being in constant pain changed me. I started getting more and more introverted and depressed, sadly.
The change came when me and my mother was at the hospital because of my pains. The doctors did an ECG and discovered some changes in my heart rhyth. From the beginning when my pains arrived I’ve always said that it feels like I’m having a heartattack. The doctors ordered me and my mother to go to another bigger hospital in another city to really check if my heart was ok. Said and done. Me and my mother got into the car and went to the hospital.
What they found wasn’t any problems with my heart, but they told me I had something called Tietzes Syndrome, which is an inflammation in the tissue which surrounds your ribs and lungs. This is nothing out of the ordinary really, it hurts but it’s not dangerous and the doctors told me to take some anti-inflammatory and that it would settle. Newsflash, it didn’t.
Next year I turn 24, and I’ve dealt with this since then.
Fast forward a couple of years. I started getting tingles in my hands and feet, extreme pain in my lower back which made me unable to lie down properly, and nonetheless stand. It came in waves, intensity wise, but the constant feeling of pain was always there. My feet and hands would get swollen from time to time, and my neck would hurt so badly I would throw up. The pain in my left arm and chest was worse than ever.
I got rushed to the ER a couple of times, they checked my heart, once again they found nothing and sent me home.
Until I found a doctor who really listened to what I had to say. He decided to do a full check-up. He checked my blood, my heart, my whole body and found nothing, until he decided to do an MRI.
What you see on the picture is what they found. It’s called Modic 1 and it’s vertebral endplate changes which causes me to be in constant pain, especially in my lower back. There’s not much information on this, so I can’t really tell you more than that it’s from what I’ve understood, fluid in my spine (?) which can develop to Modic type 2 and get hardened. There’s nothing the doctors can do, no surgery or medication except for painkillers have been discussed and so here I stand.
I got my diagnoses when I was still in school. I crashed completely and got released from school for a year to “piece my life together” again. I returned one year later and graduated with great grades.
This year, September actually, I’ll start studying at the university. I’ve been applying and hoping to get accepted since last year, and now I’m happily able to say that I’ll be studying full time.
The last two years I’ve been struggling with work, I really have. I worked at a callcenter for the first 6 months after I left school. I sat down for 8-hours a day and I’d cry when I got home because of pain. I promised myself that I would try and find something else, and I did.
I got a job in a store. I loved it! My colleagues was great, my boss was great and the job itself was fun. Problem was, when the goods arrived in the morning to be unpacked, my back couldn’t cope. I can’t lift anything heavy, and I can’t bend over for more than a minute before I have to sit down and rest.
I worked at the store for three months, and since last summer I’ve been unemployed, besided for working as a substitute teacher by the hour between November last year, and March this year.
Due to this, I’ve had practicly zero income. My fantastic fiance has been supporting me with all he can, but I just can’t stand being a burden. So I took some loans. Not big, nor many, but some. I’ve gotten no help from the government here in Sweden. We have something called Arbetsförmedlingen, which is a government owned “agency” which helpes unemployed people to find a job. They wanted to put me into the industrial field, which is heavy, and I have absolutely zero experience from it, or at another callcenter, which obviously didn’t work.
My debt today is around 2,500$ and this month I won’t be able to afford to pay back what I owe. I start studying the 3rd of September, and just the books for the education has cost me 350$ this month.
I am extremely grateful for every penny, every cent. I understand fully how it looks asking for money to pay off debt, but the money I owe today has been my lifeline the last year, due to something I have absolutely zero control over.
Thank you. From the bottom of my heart.
Dear Future Donor,
My name is Tanner and I am in need of your assistance to help support my soulmates medical bills. Recently, she has gone through a surgery at the Florida Hospital here in Tampa for her appendix to be removed. However, the appendix was inflamed and burst during the surgery process and required other medical attention. This caused her to stay in the Florida Hospital for two consecutive days. After the release date we received the bill and being two college students who are only working part-time and paying a monthly rent on a fixed income is difficult for us to make ends meet. I am looking to raise $20,000 to help me pay for her medical bills and to get our lives back on track for the future.
This may seem like a crazy amount to think of in the long run but having gone to school for Business Organizational management I know this task can be done. People daily spend their money on many meaningless objects and entertainment. So why not put a few dollars aside to help a person in need.
I’m writing to ask you to support my girlfriend who I love very much. Just a small donation of $5 can help me accomplish this goal. Only four thousand individuals need to donate this amount to reach the end goal. Which in reality is not many people considering our thriving world.
Your donation will go directly toward paying of the Florida Hospital medical bill for us and will be greatly appreciated by everyone who assisted our situation. Also as a side note, depending on how fast we can raise the money for our personal cause, I would personally like to host a non-profit organization called Honor College, which will help students that do not receive financial aid during their time at school. This will help prevent future student loans and will help more students continue to further their education.
Thank you in advance for your contribution. You have no idea how much it means to me to have your support.
Here are the ways you can make a donation:
- Make a donation by going to my paypal.me/tannerstpierre at the bottom of this letter
- Use Facebook and other social media to share the Fundraising campaign online, the more individuals we get the greater the success!
Thank you again!

My Brother in law, Robert, a second year union iron worker apprentice, 9 years non-union, had a devastating work related injury. Workman’s compensation is giving him a difficult time getting the benefits he not only deserve’s, but desperately needs. while Robert fights with the system to get his benefits, he has severely depleted all savings he has accumulated over time. This is where the system fails people like him who get up everyday to put their fears aside and build most of Americas greatest buildings, bridges, and landmarks. Robert has been married to my sister for 9 years and they have two beautiful kids together, A six year old and a 3 year old (who also has ongoing medical issues). For those of you that know him, Know he is a hard working, selfless man, ready to lend help at the drop of a hat. He is not used to asking for assistance from anyone or anything, but when he thought about his kids and not being able to make ends meet, he agreed to let me help put this together for him. He has been injured since July 2nd, when a construction lift crushed his arm, shearing 2 tricep muscles in half, and severing the radial and ulnar nerves in his arm, resulting in radial nerve palsy (paralyzing his hand). He underwent two surgeries already and will have to have two more including nerve, and tendon transfers. Robert has a long road to recovery, and with a little help, we can make it just a little bit easier on him and the kids. Robert would like to thank all those who took the time to read this and/or donate. Robert will keep everyone posted on his progress! GOD BLESS!!
Hello, I’m Kacper, 22 years old. and I live in Watford.
I’m writing this because simply I don’t know what to do anymore. In March (2018) I’ve been stabbed by some random man on the street. Police said he was on some drugs and he killed himself afterall. He stabbed me only once but unfortunately he severely damaged my left kidney. At the beginning after the accident, doctors stitched me together and everything seems to be fine. But some time ago I started to have stomach problem. I was puking few times a day and I didnt know what is going on, so I decided to make a GP appointment. And finally I found out that I need a kidney removal surgery as it is damaged by the stab and no one seems to notice that before…
The operation costs around £6.500 pounds.
Lucky for me it is possible to live and be healthy without one kidney but if they not gonna cut the damaged one, I might be in trouble. The pain is getting stronger every few days and simply I don’t have the full amount to cover this surgery.
So please if you can help me, I’m not gonna forget it and I could even try to pay you back after the surgery. I was working as a painter till I found what is going on with my health and I still woud be after I recovery. Can’t ask anybody else for help, I have little brother and sister. My parents cannot help me that much as I need.
Thank you for reading this and your Help.
Mean loads to me.

I am Morgan, 30 years old, living in New Jersey and working for a non-profit as their IT Manager.
Back in November of 2017, my right leg had developed severe swelling and blistery rashes. I had gone to urgent care at the time since my regular doctor’s office hours were closed and they were unable to assist me due to the severity of it and the doctor had me admitted to a local hospital. After a four day stay, the blistery rash had subsided but the swelling and discoloration continued. I was told to go see a vascular surgeon to get examined.
About a week later, once I managed to make an appointment, the surgeon determined that I had chronic lymphedema. He prescribed some medication, told me to purchase compression stockings and do my best to always keep it elevated. While the overall problem doesn’t affect me from working, which I have been able to since January, that one month of time off has unfortunately caught up to me in regards to medical bills and other bills.
Through my organization, I was able to apply for and was granted an emergency assistance grant of $2,000 which has helped. I’ve been able to scrounge around a little bit from friends and family as well, but I am still behind. I’ve been doing what I can to save each month, such as terminating my TV service, cutting off my gas and selling a lot of my personal belongings.
I am asking for help with $5,000, which will allow me to catch up on my bills and give me a little breathing room to get stable once more. I appreciate any help that could be given and I will definitely provide supporting evidence to show my current situation if asked (I didn’t feel comfortable posting it here).

Thank you again,
I’m a 20 year old full-time nursing student in my junior semester of nursing school.
My dad was diagnosed in the hospital with stage 5 kidney disease with a 4% renal function on Christmas Day 2016 and his health has only been declining. He is currently undergoing peritoneal dialysis which is drastically effecting his quality of life. I wake up morning and night to him on the floor throwing up, going into convulsions, trembling, and even seeing things that aren’t there. Because of his condition he has gotten into 3 fender bender car accidents in the past month just driving to doctor appointments. Even though he is hanging on by a thread, he still attends work as a mechanic every day and even weekends to pay bills. However, he is not doing well. He continues to get weaker each day and was recently admitted back to the hospital because he was unable to breath. My mom is planning on donating her kidney once we find out if she is a match for my dad or not. Unfortunately, life happens and the wait time for surgery and lab results has only become longer and has postponed my parent’s kidney transplant surgery. This means my parents are no longer able to undergo surgery this 2018 summer and being a college student, I will have limited time to care for them during their rehabilitation after surgery due to studying full-time and attending clinicals away from home. This puts a huge strain on both of my parents work life as well as my journey on successfully graduating and becoming a registered nurse. Not only will I be less available during and after my parent’s surgery, they too will be out of work for an extended period of time to recover. My family will essentially have no income to help pay the numerous medical bills and tuition costs. I have attempted to save up as much money as I could while trying not to jeopardize my GPA and academic opportunities and I have sacrificed all social life and healthy living just to work for my family.
We are deep in debt from medical bills, medications, dialysis equipment, numerous doctor appointments and consultations, lab testings, and care for my dad (not to mention my outstanding college tuition debt). Being thousands of dollars in debt just in tuition while also caring for a family member whose kidneys have failed, and preparing for two transplant surgeries for months has been mentally and physically exhausting for my family and I. I’m extremely worried for both of my parent’s health and well-being during this process and want nothing but a stress-free environment before they have to endure a costly surgery. I want my dad to be able to have quality of life again and be free from dialysis. My parents have been working nonstop for the past several months to accommodate for this, however, the bills keep coming and we simply can not afford to keep up.
I feel guilty knowing I am costing my parents thousands of dollars in debt from tuition that they simply cannot afford since my dad’s life changing diagnosis. I have three more semesters until I get my degree as a registered nurse and I need my dad at my graduation alive and living a quality life for many more years. I am just not ready to lose him to kidney disease. We are doing everything we can to support and care for him through end stage renal failure.
Please consider donating to help me graduate from nursing school and pursue my career as a registered nurse and to save my dad’s life. I have worked so hard to get where I am and all I want is to help my parents through surgery, graduate, pay off my parent’s debt, and watch my dad fight and survive kidney disease. Donations, no matter how small, would mean the world to my family and I during this time. If you’ve made it this far in this post, I appreciate and thank you for even caring enough to read this page full of my financial situation and stresses.
I am a single mother of two beautiful little girls! One is a very healthy active 10year old, and the other is sweetest little angel Gabby whom is 8 years with a smile that will shine a light on the darkest person in the room! Unfortunately my babygirl has been through so much durning the 8 years of her life, that the average human being couldn’t possibly bare! At only a few months old, my baby was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease! It’s a very rare condition that affects many people differently! For my baby girl it causes her muscles to get stiff and tense, she is unable to talk, walk, hear, or physically do anything for herself as well she has to have a feeding pump at night! Raising a disabled child is very challenging every single day as it hurts me to see that my baby will probably never live a regular life, but what keeps me going everyday is the beautiful glow of a smile that gives off! Although she may be experiencing all types of pain and problems due to her condition she is always smiling and laughing, which lets me know that my baby has hope! I am asking you all for any kind of donation to help me care for my babygirl, as u can imagine it’s definitely hard for me to work and keep a job as I have at least 2 to 3 doctors and therapy appointments every week! And i’ve been doing fairly good these whole 8 years of maintaining without the help! But as she is getting older, she getting bigger and some things Medicaid doesn’t cover, and well as some treatments aren’t covered! My baby needs a new chair, our home needs to be handicapped accessible, as well as other things!
There are only a handful of programs in the entire nation able to handle mitochondrial diseases as there is no cure and it’s so rare that they are no major studies to find one!
Everyday is a struggle and a blessing for us!
If you can find it in your hearts to be a blessing to us, we would greatly appreciate it! Anything will help!
My name is Elliot, and I am transgender. Born a girl, in my childhood I believed I was simply “a late bloomer.” I never questioned my gender until puberty came along, and turned my world upside down. My body was changing in ways that made me unable to look in the mirror, I would have breakdowns every time I was going to shower, and felt immense discomfort with my newly developed curves. I was young, not even fully knowing what transgender meant, when I started binding my chest down with ace bandages and duct tape. I wanted to stop them from growing, and I wanted to look down and see a flat chest when I wore a shirt. For those who don’t know, what I did was stupid and dangerous. Because of these unsafe binding methods, my ribs are permanently misshapen and my back constantly aches. I am an adult now, 1 year on testosterone therapy and trying to get my life together, but without the funds to do so. When I leave my house, I wear a tight compression vest called a binder, a much safer way of hiding my chest, but still painful and with its risks. In my case, both with my larger chest and my previously mentioned health problems, I cannot wear this for more than 4 hours a day. And I’ve been binding with my binder for 3 years, saving what I can for surgery. My chest is a huge contributor to my difficulty with enjoying my life. I cannot play sports or go to the gym because of it, I cannot spend long amounts of time out of the house, I cannot swim, wear white t-shirts, or stand up straight because of it. I have a deep voice, facial hair, and dress as an obvious male, if I were to walk out without my binder, I would look like exactly what I am. A man with boobs. I just want to be comfortable in my body and not have this major health issue plague my life any longer. As for why I am here, asking for money, I will leave this short and to the point. I am a transgender gay male from a small town deep in the south. I have been job searching for 6 months for something reliable and besides some home painting and yard work for some people, I have not been able to get a job. I am hardworking and do not let my chest issues stop me from doing whatever job I would be given, the simple truth is it hard for a young transgender man with a name change still going through thanks to a religious bias court to land a job. I will not expect much, but any donation at all is so appreciated. Every cent goes to my surgery fund, where 7000 is my goal. I will do whatever it takes to get this surgery so I can finally move on with my life, and will forever repay my gratitude for anyone who helps me. Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a lovely day
My name is Frank , I am 30 years old, recently my doctor told me I have bladder Cancer.
I am in the first stage of it. I feel scared all the time, waking up, with the intense pain.
I am getting so behind on my hospital bills, and my medication bills. I work part-time on ebay as a seller, and I have a full time job as technician.
I know there are kind people everywhere, I am asking you people out there, for your kindness, and generosity, to help me pay my medical bills.
my goal is to pay $40,000 in med bills
I hope you can donate, and God Bless you..
I’m a 34yo honest, hardworking woman. For 15 years I have had chronic headaches, facial & neck pain; nerve pain. The pain in so intense it has caused significant muscle tightness on the right side of my neck and head that it makes it very difficult to swallow (doctors are still trying to figure out what is happening). Even more swallowing exacerbates my symptoms, so I fast throughout my work day and eat a liquid dinner. The condition was manageable for 9 years but became chronic in the past 6 years. I have knocked on countless (approximately hundreds) of doctors doors over the years for relief that ended in being a great waste of time, energy and money (that I could not afford and the reason I do not have money saved). It was a terrible nightmare, I truly wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.
The amazing thing is in January 2018 I found a doctor that seems to have an accurate diagnosis and is finally giving me significant relief. The doctor reports to me she thinks I should have a full recover (knock on wood). I’m not 100% yet – but I finally feel there may be a day I will be.
I don’t know how and, it truly was painful, while I was very sick I managed to go to undergraduate school and work a part time job, go to graduate school and work a part time job and have been working 7 years in social services. Currently I am a social work for DSHS (pretty sure it doesn’t help the healing thing). I come from a hard-working family that didn’t understand my health struggles. They could never wrap their head around me staying home sick or resting to recover – so I never consider that an option. I bit the bullet and worked while in immense and chronic pain. I know you may be wondering why I didn’t look into disability, I did but it’s nowhere near enough to cover medical bills, rent, student loans, and basic living expenses. Disability was not an option. The reason I’m writing this is that the Doctor’s have said they need to increase my treatment for 2 to 4 months for me to recover, the appointments include (physical therapy, speech therapy, cranial alignment and chiropractor. Unfortunately, that requires for me to take time off work. I qualify for FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) but that is unpaid. Please understand that I have tried my very hardest to manage this condition and work without being a burden on others – but apparently working is no longer an option I have to time off work to get healthy.
I am so sorry to ask for money, but truly do not have an option. I have to take medical leave, I have tried my hardest to get better while working and promise when I have healed I will give back in every way I can. I am provide any other information if you would like. PLEASE HELP
My name is Nenad Jovanovic, I’m married and have two beautifull kids.
I live in Serbia.
Together with my wife, I have built my house. I took a loan from Bank in amount of $10000. I started to build on 2005 and finished 2009. Unfortunatelly, I had hard diabetes and I started to fight with this illness, spending a lot of money. This year I didn’t work 2 months (I work 30 years in the same factory) and Bank called me to make agreement: I have to turn back $5000 and if I don’t make payment, they will sell my house. I have two chindren who are more than excellent in school. Without home, we – all together – have no future.
I have diabetes from November 2009. In the beggining it was not so hard and I could work and earn good.
But yaer after year, diabetes was worst and worst and now – this is a question could I find medicament for years which comes. There’s no medical operation to solve my problem.
I’m using medicaments which are very expensive – $100 – $1000. Lot of these medicaments couldn’t be found in Serbia, so I have to buy it in Austria or Germany or via Internet. When I was in the worst situation with diabetes, I had no money, because I was building the house. I had to borrow money from my friends and Bank. I knew that Bank’s loan was not so good, but I hadn’t choice.
All the money I had after I finished house I gave for my kids’s education. Son is very good student and daughter is excellent in high school.
Every day I pray for them to be healthy and good people. My health is very bad – I tried to give everything to my kids. I know that they are filling sad because my health and they are trying to spent minimum – much more than their friends. I am very proud about this.
There are a lot of nights that I couldn’t sleep, thinking how and where to find money for kids, for Bank, for medicaments… There’s no way out.
I found information on Internet about good people who want and can to help another, with big financial problems.
So, now my diabetes is going to be worst. I have no money and I can’t do extra jobs to earn necessary money. I need it, but I don’t know where from…
Please, help me to pay $5000 to my Bank and save home and future of my kids.
I need this $5000 as soon as possible.
Thank you for reading this post. I hope that you – good people will and can help me with my financial problem. God be with you.
Anyone who wants to help, please, sends money to Paypal.me/Nenad5
Hi, my name is Alex! I am a 21-year-old college student. I had a small internship at a start-up in Nashville this summer, and unfortunately, it turned out to be quite a dud. It was a good experience, but nowhere near the amount of time and money, I was expecting. Usually, it would be okay, and I could get back on my feet, but my father had a stroke in the middle of the summer and my mother, his ex-wife had to take him in. He is European and his entire family is across seas, so this was his only option, due to the fact that there were no open beds in rehab in their small town in Virginia. The other option was to send him to a nursing home, but we all know you don’t get better there, so my mother graciously will be his caretaker for the most part. I have a twin sister who is also in college and an 18-year-old brother who is starting college in the fall. All colleges have been very understanding of our situation and as helpful as they can be, but unfortunately, there are still many costs that we are unable to cover. My mother cannot take FMLA because she needs to work because we are all on her medical insurance. Therefore hiring someone to watch over my faster five days a week is unbelievably expensive, as well as three times a day of speech therapy adds up, and there are many medical bills still unpaid for. We all have jobs but are taking on many hours than previously, in order to send some money back home. My mother is wonderful and would never ask us to do so, but we have agreed amongst ourselves to do our best to help out. We are looking at a hard year. Especially my mother because she was especially looking forward to finally being alone after 21 years haha :) And now she is working full time while taking care of her ex-husband. Bottom line is, we are all just trying to adjust to this new lifestyle and our feet under us, and unfortunately, money is the way we can do this. We are looking for about $10,000. Anything would really help and would be so appreciated. Thank you so much for your understanding and support. If there are any questions or need of proof, I am so happy to provide answers. You are the best!
Hi there I am a 25-year-old mother of two and one of which is a special-needs nonverbal child because he is special-needs it takes up most of my time which means I am on able to find a job.
Last year I was gifted an ancestry DNA kit to find my ethnicity since we do not know who my father‘s birth family is when you get an ancestry DNA kit you can also see your bra DNA file and you can enter into other health website that will analyze the data I did this on several websites and they all came back showing that I had several Gene mutations that made it 80% more likely that I would get cancer in my lifetime specifically breast and ovarian cancer.
now I’ve read online that some of these ancestry DNA results have been having false results and it has been eating at me for a while now Because I’m not sure if my results are true or not I do not have insurance and insurance wouldn’t pay for this test anyways because I am unable to prove that I have a family history of the gene mutation since we do not know my father’s birth family and my father has passed away if I do have the gene and we find out early enough I can have procedures done to prevent getting the cancers.
I had been planning on purchasing an FDA approved kit online but the doctors would approve as accurate results but every time I want to buy the kit something always comes up either bills or medical necessities for my child and school starting up all those Things have prevented me from being able to buy the kit and as of right now I’m not sure when I’d actually be able to get it anytime soon.
This Gene could also affect my children if I have the mutation it can be passed down to them which makes this even more stressful of a situation.
so I’ve resorted to having to ask for donations. Any little bit can help and is greatly appreciated
The kit is from color.com they are an FDA approved lab that can test for a lot of different health issues from your genes they have one kit that would be best for me because it tests for several different types of genes and it cost around $250 but I can also take the other test that is specifically for the BRCA genes and it is $100.
So if you are able to help, thank you so much. And if you aren’t but you took the time to read this, thank you also.
I have never done anything like this before nor have I even heard of this type of outreach online. I guess I find myself here no other reason than, to ask for a helping hand. I’m young and should be loving life right now, since I imagined me married with at least three kids at this point in my life. Instead, I’m twenty-five, no husband, no kids, and no place to call home at the moment. Long story short, I was diagnosed HIV positive at twenty-five as well as having my body contract fungal meningitis. My life was from no worries, living carefree, to hanging on asking myself how I got here. I no longer have insurance under my parents plan. I now will have to pay out of pocket on my own. As much as it seems such an easy solution to “get a job” my physical disability and mental state are not anywhere near where my doctor would like to see me. I still feel numb today when I wake up every morning reminding myself that I am infected with a lifelong. That is a hard pill to swallow at my age, and yet I haven’t really faced it. I guess I’m still in denial. Today my four sisters who I love so much and my two nephews who mean the world to me, are so distant. With seeing me laid up in the hospital for weeks, they wanted to blame for the person who did this to their sister. Yet, I will never let blame be placed on another when my hands were the first ones dirty. See life truly gives you one shot to take, as everyone says. I’ve faced the dark tunnel, but I refuse to follow it. I hope a tiny part of my life has given you reason behind my daily struggle. I don’t expect pity or to be showered with sadness for me. I just want to finally go to college and further my own education..anything in amount would help. For school books, healthy food to actually cook and make, and confidence in knowing I can tackle any challenge that comes my way. I just know the meaning of a human life more than ever now and I wouldn’t wish this life on anybody. With no financial help from my family and disability only paying so much, I hope for angels like you all to guide me and just give me a boost to get my life back on track. Thank you
(The photos I posted were a few days after the incident. I couldn’t bring myself to take a photo before the swelling started to go down.)
Hello all 👋🏼 I had an accident where I fainted and fell Sunday 07/29. The ambulance took me to the ER and the oral surgeon pushed my teeth back into place so I could actually close my mouth and eat. I lost one tooth and the other four are dislocated with nerve damage. One canine is still merged up in the gum. The mandibular bone holding the top row of teeth together is broken. Currently I have a splint in place for a few months. The dr said it’ll take a good 6-12 months of soft food, ice and plenty of rest to heal.
As a model, I won’t be having an income for some time :( I do not have insurance so the expenses will be more than I imagined. The ambulance/ER, the foundation work, the restorative work, chiropractor for my jaw. This is one of those times I am humbling myself, allowing vulnerability and accepting help when I realize I really need it. It is quite a setback in many ways. I had many upcoming goals, but my spirituality keeps me optimistic. I feel so thankful and blessed that the repercussions were not worse and that I am healing well so far.
What I truly ask for is that the final result be even better than the original state. To come back better than before continuing to live out my daily life and dreams with confidence. I just want to get back on my feet and start again, but it will take time for the bones to heal. Any donated amount is immensely appreciated 🙏🏼 If you are unable to donate financially, I simply ask you send positive and healing energy my way. Thank you so much, blessings ✨
Im a 28 year old woman trying to conceive, there is no doubt you have heard a thousand of these stories of people who struggle, mine starts very young. at 18 years old I found out i had PCOS and did not ovulate, My partner and I were told very early in our relationship that we would struggle to conceive when we decided to start and the older I got, the harder it would be. So at 18 years old (partner 23) we begun trying, and here we are today still trying.
WE have had endless amounts of saving attempts and have made it within 500 of our goal to start an ovulation stimulation cycle, but have been hit with over the top bills and unfortunate situations every time. This time we want it to work, we want our tenth year trying to be our last year trying.
Me – I am working as a casual housekeeper, which i guess its okay, its all i know but it doesnt cover a hole lot of bills which is where my partner picks up a lot
Partner – My partner works away, 2 weeeks away 1 week home in the mines, he earns just enough to support us but finds it hard to have extras left over, and when there is extras we spend it usually on small treats at really stressful times (mostly just movies and picnics)
we would honestly appreciate any any any help possible to help us finally get the family we have wanted for the past 10 years
Hello all and thank you for reading.
My name is Brooks and I’m 21 years old. I have one son who is 3. We do not live near each other and I want to change that. I initially moved away for a job that ended up going bad and I was out of work. I’ve been struggling trying to get back to him but I fell extremely ill. I’ve always had problems with arthritis and ulcers. But a few months ago they found a growth in my lung and a tumor on my brain. Work has become extremely hard. I can barely move or get out of bed most days because I’m pretty much stuck in whatever position I wake up in. I ended up leaving my job due to the bulling I was receiving from my managers. They would talk down to me and tell me I was useless or worthless due to my conditions and would order me to do things that my doctor (in writing) said not to be doing. I left because I couldn’t physically or mentally take it anymore. At the moment I am homeless and trying to get back to my son. My doctor is advising against that because with me being homeless and my conditions, I’m estimated to only live another year unless I can get off the street. Longer if I can afford the treatments. If I move back to where my son is, I’m estimated only to live another 6 months because I won’t have any medical help until after the period of being approved by medicaid, getting in with a doctor and them figuring out my method of treatment plus I will still be homeless. I’m so lost on what to do but I need to be with my son. My doctor had tried to help me get disability but they didn’t approve me. I’m on my last leg and have no one I can turn to as my family isn’t the greatest. I just need anything to help me until I can get everything sorted out here. I’d really like to live a little longer and get the treatment I need. Any donation would be much appreciated and would help in getting me to my son as well as medications and treatment and places to stay until I can get another job. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and thank you for all future help.
Hello and thank you for reading my post. The reason I am hear is that about a year ago my wife was diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy. This effects a persons ability to see. Since she was diagnosed, she has had treatments that are very costly, even with insurance. I have included a picture of part of a bill. This is only a portion of what we owe. She also has not been able to work during this time. We have asked family and taken out loans but it has reached the point that we just need more help. Before this happened, we donated regularly to our church (we are non-denominational Christians) and helped others as we could. We know that God will show us a way and lead us back to a life where we can help others.
Me and my wife met about 4 years ago. We met online and started dating shortly after we began talking. We were married about a year after we met. We had some difficulties at first as by wife is black and I am white. Her family has been nothing but supportive every step of the way. I can not say the same for mine. It has been hard and I hope that one day they come around to see what a beautiful and kind woman my wife is. I pray for my family every day even with the things they have done to and said about my wife. We forgive others as God as forgiven us.
I haven’t always been a Christian. I lead an unsaved life before meeting my wife. Drinking every day for 13 years, out to the bar as often as I could. I had no direction in life and was going nowhere fast. I met my wife and all of that changed. She introduced me to Jesus and I was saved. God has made so many positive changes in my life and I am eternally grateful to him and to my wife for helping me down the path to him. She took care of me and now all I want to do is take care of her. If you can please help us get out from under these medical bills and back to a better life.
Thank you for reading my post. If you can help, please do and may God bless you and your family for doing so. Anything you can give would mean the world to us. If not, that is ok as well. May God bless you and your family as well.
My name is Emily, and I am 23 years old taking care of my mom who has grand mal seizures. She’s 62 years old, and her condition has only gotten worse. I unfortunately can’t afford to pay for much other than food on the table and partial bills. I can’t even afford her medication to calm them down. She doesn’t have the capability to work. I hate asking for help but this is my last option. She’s had seizures since she was 32 years old. And it’s only gotten worse since insurance won’t pay for the medicine like they used to. My mom means the world to me, she’s all I have left. I lost my dad in 2011 to cancer. I can’t lose my mom because the seizures are rotting her brain. She’s been in and out of hospitals for a few years now, they haven’t found any other way of calming down the episodes. She’s had a close call of losing her tongue and shattering her teeth. I work 48 hour weeks as a server and I don’t make enough to keep us on our feet. I’m not asking for a pity party. I’m just asking for someone with a kind heart who’s understanding where I’m coming from. My mom used to be a teacher. She used to take care of me with such care. She left her job when I was born to be a better mother to me. She helped me through depression when I lost my dad. I began working at 15 to help with the bills and living expenses with my mom. But she unfortunately fell too ill to continue working a few years ago. So now it’s just me relying on my job and school loans to pay for things. I appreciate you listening and I appreciate every penny that comes to help me get my mom back on her feet. She deserves to feel happy and whole again. She’s an incredible woman. She’s helped so many to never ask for anything in return.
I will start by telling you a little bit about myself and my situation. I am a 29 year old single mother of 2 phenomenal boys. My children are the light of my life, the reason I smile, and the driving force for every other aspect of my life.
I have recently run into a string of bad luck with medical insurance. Both of my children lost their Medicaid back in December of 2017. I have since been in a continuous battle with social services in my area, with no resolve still to this day and no answers. I have had to resort to free clinics for immunizations and urgent care or ER visits for any other medical issue that has come up for them. I have checked into the health care marketplace to try to get any sort of health coverage for them I can. However I have been denied each time I apply because my income is too low.
My oldest son is 8 and is extremely prone to strep throat. In the past 6 months he has had it 5 times. Every doctor that sees him has told me he’s going to end up needing his tonsils removed, which is a costly procedure without insurance.
My hope is that I can raise enough money to pay off both of their past medical bills and have some to start putting towards a tonsillectomy operation in the event I have to pay for it out of pocket.
Any amount is helpful at this point, and I appreciate anyone who took the time out of their day to read my story.
Thank you all!
To anyone that may be reading this, to explain the current situation, my best friend was run over by a drunk driver when she was only 5 years old. It was night of the fourth of july, the driver whipped around the corner with no lights on and hit her. Her head got stuck under the tire and was cheese grated along the pavement. She had rocks ground into her back as well, and still has scars on her body from the incident. They had to pick the rocks out and then she had multiple surgeries over several months to save her little life. 11 total. One of which was a skin graft from her butt to the left side of her head. A literal butthead as she likes to say. She recovered well and became a bright young woman.
She may have survived but her suffering never ended. To this day and every day since that night she feels residual pain from it, and gradually increasing. Her jaw isnt fully grown on the side that was hit, and pops in and out of place almost constantly, nor does it sit correctly. Sometimes she has to stop talking for hours at a time, just so that she can have some relief. And it causes her daily pain, to the point that she cries all the time about how much pain shes in. How its always there, no matter what she does. Her eye on the same side drifts from time to time, and she has trouble seeing with it. It gives her splitting headaches she has no control over.
Shes afraid to wear her hair up because everytime she does people never stop staring at her scar, a bald patch about the size of the palm of your hand. And they never will stop staring. Ive heard the story so many times over the years i know it by heart myself. The same spiel over and over each time someone new sees it. All the jokes people make constantly at her expense. Never being able to just fit in because something happened to her that was beyond her control. It wasnt her fault and it wasnt her choice. Why should she have to suffer this pain every single day because of someone elses mistake?
We know that shes going to need reconstructive surgery, yet another one to add to the list, something that has her terrified of hospitals and doctors in general because of all the trauma that came along with it. But our health coverage with the government wont help. Apparently its “cosmetic”
Shes been trying to better her life, she went to school for cosmetology so that she could succeed, and now that shes in that field shes treated like garbage for how she looks. We’ve been trying our best to make the money so that she can have the surgery done without us going in the hole, but truth be told the pain she feels gets worse every passing day. She desperately needs this and I want nothing more than to help her. We’re doing our best and because of the world we live in sadly thats not good enough.
Hey, I broke my foot somehow, recently. I actually broke my other foot at the beginning of this year, and had to take work off for that, too.
Mobility is beginning to become a huge problem for me. I’ve been in and out of physical therapy this year for the previous fracture and subsequent tendinitis and sprains. It feels like it’s never going to end, and I’ll never catch up financially.
This break developed slowly, over a couple of months until the pain grew so bad and my foot grew so swollen and gross-looking I couldn’t walk anymore and ended up in the emergency room. I got scolded by the attending physician for letting it get so bad, which is totally fair. I was really hoping it was something that would go away on its own, but I really should have known better.
My orthopedic doctor is going to check my bone density because he says I’m too young to be getting these stress fractures. I’m taking vitamin D and calcium supplements as he suggested. He is recommending a bone stimulator as well, but those cost way too much. He said they’re about $4,000 without insurance.
In the meantime, he says I can’t walk on it at all for about six to eight weeks because it won’t heal otherwise. Once it heals, I’ll have to do even more physical therapy.
If it doesn’t heal, then I’ll have to go to a surgeon to have some screws put in which is something I’d really like to avoid.
I’m really stressed and freaking out because the job I went to school for, that I’ve trained for, that I’ve been doing for 9 years, has me on my feet all day.
My work doesn’t support FMLA so I have no job security, and they also don’t offer any benefits, and I can’t work. I don’t know what to do.
I somehow need to pay my mortgage, all of these medical bills, feed myself, and take care of my pet birds.
I have three cockatiels and one barraband parakeet and they’re my whole world. If I didn’t have them in my life, I don’t think I’d have the strength to get up in the morning. Avian veterinary care is expensive, and although they don’t have any problems currently, I’m still really anxious about being able to afford that during these circumstances. They deserve only the best.
Please, if anyone can help me out, I would be so, so grateful.
I am collecting funds to save life of a 2 year old girl in India who belongs to an extremely poor family. She has a urinary track defect due to which she cant urinate properly and suffers much pain whenever she has to pee. Doctors are saying if not treated urgently, she can even die due to kidney issues. The family is rag picker in India and hardly earns enough to put food on table. Plz join me in this cause to help save the little girl. She needs a total of about $3000 to go through 4 surgeries.
I never thought I’d be here. I am about to be 30 years old in a couple of months and I am struggling with paying my bills each and every month. Right now I have a good full time job as a dispatcher that I have been in for several years and take on any possible overtime opportunities that I can. Still I live paycheck to paycheck and can hardly cover my bills. I shouldn’t say that. I can pay my bills what is killing me is my credit card debt. The minimum payments and interest are just so much it means I am usually juggling bills trying to not lose anything like power/water/rent/gas.
I know this is my own doing. I was young and dumb and didn’t pay as much attention to my money as I should have when I got my credit card at eighteen. For a while I used it like a responsible person but I hit a rough patch and was unemployed for almost a year. I put everything on my card in that time while I fought to find something, which I was lucky enough to do, but a year of bills, groceries, gas, etc on a credit card will really take a toll. By the time I figured out how to manage my money and create a legit and workable budget with my new job it was too late. I owed way too much in credit card debt.
Every time I think I’m making progress something hits me and sets me even further back. From an accident where my vehicle, which wasn’t new or in perfect shape but was reliable was totaled and what they could pay me for it didn’t even cover half of a decent vehicle. Credit Card. I don’t live in an area where public transit is a thing. My washer crapped out on me. I’ve had to go to the doctor a couple of times for bronchitis and strep. Each time the credit card was the only solution. Now they are near the max point and I have taken them out of my wallet. I have cut things down as much as possible doing anything possible to lower my necessary bills so I can try and pay on my credit cards and get them paid down enough to not struggle as hard.
It seems like an impossible task.
The idea of needing anything from groceries, gas, or anything more makes me cry. I haven’t been to a doctor for anything other than my free annual exam in years or had any medication for my high blood pressure and other ailments because while I know it would help me feel better I also know it’s a bill that would only stress me out more not being able to pay. Because even though I have good insurance through my job I still have to pay between $125-$210 just to walk in the door to be seen by a doctor not counting treatment or meds. I’m single and have no kids. I don’t qualify for any type of assistance, I’ve checked. Putting aside my medical needs is one thing but, and this may sound crazy to those of you who don’t have a fu baby, I also have a sweet cat, whom I have had since I was in middle school. She is 16 years old and I have always taken care of her even then and I’ve always been lucky in that she’s never required much money to stay healthy but she now has a horrible infestation of fleas, though I don’t know how as I’ve always had a flea collar on her and spot treat her. Nothing has changed in the surroundings accept some new neighbors who may be the cause as their animals are always scratching I think they managed to hop on over. That said to get her the treatment we both need, those suckers are getting me now too, costs $230 for 6 months. I am already struggling but now I feel like a horrible pet parent as well because I can’t afford to take myself to the doctor let alone her.
I have a good job, I don’t go on shopping sprees and I am very diligent with my money but no matter how hard I try it seems like I am sinking deeper and deeper. It seems no matter how much I work I just can’t break even. My credit cards are maxed out, from young and stupid days, and I have been working for the past five years to try and recover but it’s not a easy feat alone. Even down to basics it is nearly impossible for someone working a full time job, and doing side jobs whenever possible even donating plasma when my condition allows, to break even.
I’m not asking for anyone to put me in the life of luxury. I don’t want to quit my job and live off of others. I like my job and I like working. I would like to be able to not cry myself to sleep at night wondering if I can make my bills next week. To be able to take my poor fur baby to the vet for the flea treatment she needs and be able to actually take care of my own medical issues as well. I am a few months from my 30th birthday and all I want right now is to be able to knock out this credit card debt that is slowly killing me. If you are able to help in any way I would be forever grateful. In my job I see a lot of the evil in the world but on the flip side I work with some amazing people and know there is even more good out there. Thank you for even taking the time to read this. Typing it up has been therapeutic.
I,m been fighting depression and temptation for 10 years now. I lost job after job. i miss a tooth, because i can’t pay for a new replacement and bill, my bed in broken and is breaking my back, i haven’t bought clothes and shoe in a long time .i lost my self and confidence not taking good care of my self.2 serious attempt suicides a lot of bills to pay with no support from the government or banks, I can’t get a loan and -1000Euro in debt to the bank every 3 months I have to be positive on my account so when my social security money comes and government benefits I go from minus -1000 to 200 balance and it have been 5 years like this for me and I, am still a humble men follow the footsteps of Jesus . while others around me not so strong enough or forced into the game simply because of nobody cares. and they have no options because of the system and hypocrisy and I study people pattern and behavior to understand life and them and my self better. so I can work on my self and be that great leader I ones were. I had to change my attitude ego and expand my comfort zone set pride aside and ask for help. I was always the giving type ..and now I can’t give away .. I felt fucked no support from the government and then I saw the true faces of corruption and then it was clear to me that nobody cared, and jet I stay humble and keep on focussing on the future and educating my self so that others can follow and I can remove the Chainz… but first I have to remove my first and then I can free someone else I can tell you a lot about my problems and that I need the money and freedom my dream is a cabin in the woods living off grid in nature so had to study and study and work and work and finally my study and practice paid off because of change and determination and my goal is to free others and teach these skills go back to my country and help them become free
i see a lot of people asking for big money 100K 200K because they have to pay mortgage
10k pays would be all debt paid new tooth clothes and shoes new bed all the things I been a missing driver license and a food truck
I would be happy if I could get 5000 Euro because that would set me free from slavery and corporate bondage from the banks …and then I can teach the people who are counting on me to make it a better world and not to give up on their dreams. and it’s all because of you
thank you for helping and sharing and your trust in me
First off, thank you for reading this. I’m writing in hopes of gaining support so that I can afford psychiatric care. Anyway, here’s a little bit about me:
I am a single woman of 27 who struggles with anxiety and clinical depression. I’ve just recently come out of an abusive relationship and I’m struggling to make ends meet. Right now I don’t have health insurance and I’m unemployed. I recently transferred to Texas State University and I desperately want to succeed there. I’m studying nutrition and I want to work in physical therapy. My goal is to be financially independent so that I can support myself and help my family out. Both of my parents, and one of my siblings, also suffers with mental illness. It’s debilitating for them, so I can’t ask them for much help.
My mom has done what she can, despite her own struggles, to help me find a place to live. I don’t move in until mid August so I’m staying at a friend’s home over the summer. Honestly, I need help affording the essentials such as food, rent, and clothes, but psychiatric help is at the top of my list. It would truly help get me moving in the right direction so that I can take care of myself.
I also have a dog that I can’t afford to take to the vet at the moment. She’s 5 months old and a little behind on her shots. I know I shouldn’t have a dog if I can’t afford to pay for her, but I can’t bring myself to give her away because she’s my world.
I appreciate you all for taking the time to read this. Really anything helps. I will make the most of any support I receive, and finally, I intend to pay it forward to others in need when I can.
You know that feeling when it rains it pours? Well I am 32 is feeling that right now. After many months of being in pain of spondylosis i had to leave my job. It had gotten so bad i couldn’t drive myself to work nor could sit or stand for more than 10 minutes. This also has brought so much pain to my dominat arm i lose a lot of function within. I had also found out that i have arthritis in neck and arm. At 32 it should be this way. I had always been a very active person and lead a healthy life. They assume its from computer use for the past 14 years but who knows!?
I have applied for Social Security Disbilty a few months ago and they are still gathering all medical records. They project this process to be a long one. Which means a long time without any income. I had to give up my apartment,my car,give up on payments of credit cards that helped me through art school. Which makes me so upset, i had worked hard in my 20s to get a good credit score to just go down in my 30s.
I currently having a bit trouble finding rides,paying for them to go to doctors, pharmacy and physical therpy and much more. I have just recently had my phone cancel on me. I have had that phone number since i was in high school.
I have worked very hard up until now. I had started my own business by the time I was 26 and called my self pretty successful until now. Its just a shame when you are a good worker, great friend, great daughter and artist and feel not so great inside due to everything that has happened to me.
I have always played the guitar,ukulele,been a acrylic painter, surfer and dancer. All of these activities have been a huge part of my life. Now it seems that i can barley do most of these things on a good day.
Unfortunately i don’t have much as family is concerned. I have my mom that lives far away and on a fixed income (social security). She cries every time i talk to her that she can’t help me in this hard time. My father passed away while i was in my early 20s and grandparents all died before i was 5. So the line ends there for help.
I have always held my head high and never had asked for anything. Now i have to just put my pride aside and hope the universe will make this all pan out for me. Living the life of stress is also not good on my mental health and harder to keep my body in good health.
Thanks for your time and generosity in advance. I can’t wait to pay it forward when i am better!

Hey all, I’m here to share my uncle’s story. My uncle’s name is Jeremy Nelson. Born in Pensacola,FL also known as a Floridian. He was always a happy kid but with a little attitude in him (according to my grandma anyway). He was a good kid growing up and stayed to his school work and never really got in trouble, besides the normal teenage trouble. In his adult life he’s just been trying to get a stable career and have his own little family. But, about 2 months ago he started coughing alot, until the coughing turned into spitting up blood. So he went to the doctor and found out after many different scans and different test. My uncle Has terminal stage 4 lung cancer. In these past 2 months I’ve watched my happy, smiling living uncle, with a bright shine in his eyes all the time become a man I no longer know. He doesn’t laugh without his lungs hurting, he doesn’t smile much and he no longer has that beautiful little glimmer in his eyes. He won’t ever tell me the truth but I know he is constantly in pain. He has to go to chemotherapy for 6 hours a day 4 days a week. And as a result of that we have had a lot of trouble paying the bills. Sometimes we go without in order to pay for his bills. Though we don’t know how long we have left with him I don’t want the rest of his time on this earth to be worried about paying a medical bill. I want him to be able to still experience the good things in life like any other meal besides hospital food. So please, help him or really help my family pay for his medical bills. My goal is to get 3,000 to pay off the rest of his bills and hopefully give him a couple of nice dinners before he meets his God. Thank you to everyone who helps and God bless
