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.
