Please help if you can!!
I have been struggling for about 4 years now with a progressive autoimmune disease of my connective tissues and bones. Which has caused horrible pain, and a lot of other problems. I am 35 and have held a good job for 15 years, but have now been off and on disability for the past few years. I have an 11 year old son who was diagnosed with temperal lobe epilepsy when he was 8. He is doing well now but between the medical bills for him and all my medical bills for lab tests MRI and CT scans as well as all the specialist visits and surgeries. It has been really hard to keep up with my rent and medical bills and living expenses. Especially because my disability does not pay much.
I was served with papers a few weeks ago with medical bills that had gone into collections and I know there are more to come. I have tried so hard to keep things together and be responsible but it’s just not enough latley.
I worry constantly about food, gas, clothing for my growing 11 yr old boy and I just can’t take it any more. I never ask for help I’m embarrassed to even be doing this. But I’m so tired, sick and stressed which is not helping the situation.
For a long time I kept hope that everything would work out. I would get better and I would be back at work permanently. But unfortunately I know this is not going to get better only worse.
I know I could budget a lot better and that is definitely my goal. I know i could have done a few things differently so i wouldn’t have fallen on such hard times. No one thinks they are going to be suddenly unable to work to a chronic illness. I did have some back up for a while in savings but it’s been drained by rent, bills and other living expenses.
I just need a good amount of money a little help to get my financial situation back on track. Pay my medical bills and other past due bills I have been unable to pay due to my being unable to work.
Thank you for your consideration.
