So I am a mid-20 year old female, college student. Let me start you at the beginning of how everything happened.
Back in June of 2018, my dad, my best friend, suffered from a major cerebrum stroke putting him in the hospital. He was always the main provider for our family as an owner operator of a tractor trailer for a moving company. This stroke caused him to get a craniotomy because his brain began to swell, and into a coma for a week and a half. So this stroke caused so much damaged to not only his health, but the entire family. Since my dad was a driver, he had his stroke on the job.. in New Jersey while my mom, brother and I were home, in South Carolina. Of course when we found out, us three drove 11 hours to get to him. To be there for him. After a week, I decided to fly back home because we have two dogs and two cats, and I knew bills needed to be paid. So I didn’t want my parents to worry.
I came home and stayed home, while my mom and brother stayed with my dad and watched him recover little by little. Meaning, everything was on me. I paid the bills, took care of the house and 4 animals, by myself. As well as work full time, go to school full time, and try to take care of myself, and constantly wonder if my dad was going to fully pull through. All that for just a 21 year old was a lot. This whole situation caused my anxiety and stress levels to rise.
Come March 2019, that’s when I blacked out and ended up in the hospital. They did numerous tests on me to see why I would black out, only to come and find out that it’s from stress. The stress put me in the hospital. Meanwhile, in all of this with my dad, I was kicked off my parents’ health insurance. So that hospital bill was to be paid out of pocket. $2500 later, and I managed to pay 500 of it at least, but I’m greatly struggling and it’s going on a year and a half later without it being paid off. I can’t do this alone and I just need help. Of course due to the circumstances, I can’t ask my family for help so here I am. Asking a bunch of people that I don’t know to trust me and donate money to me so I can finally pay off this bill of mine from a time that I’m not too hipped on remembering. Please.
Sincerely and still-stressed out,
