Long story short, was hospitalized for 10 days in September, diagnosed with
severe Crohn’s. Had to move out of my apartment and into my mother’s
garage (off a studio.), lost my job, had no insurance, so now I have about
$60,000 in medical bills, and no money to get regular care or medication.
Was denied unemployment and do not qualify for assistance since I have no
dependents. I honestly have always been able to take care of myself and
don’t know how it got to this point. My father is in a nursing home and I
have no other relatives to ask. I used the last of my saving paying my
father’s bills for the last 2 years. I also have a student loan that is
way behind and has affected my credit. I don’t need extras just enough to
get back on my feet. I am looking for a job, but it’s difficult with no
money and I need to look presentable and/or be able to buy clothes for work.
My hair is also falling out in chunks from being sick, very disheartening
I will basically be destitute by the end of the month as my mother cannot
support me any longer (she has been taking care of me and I am well enough
to work, but have not found a job yet). I am 40 and I have always taken care
of myself and it pains me to ask for money from anyone, but I don’t know
where else to turn. $500 to $1000 would be enough. You and everyone here are
in my prayers, and I am eternally grateful for any help. God Bless.
