Hi and thank you for taking your time to read this! My boyfriend has been waiting for a disability hearing for over 2 years from the state of Rhode Island and he’s been told he’ll have to keep waiting. He can’t work, and even me working full time doesn’t cover his cost of living. He suffers from unpredictable lung collapses that have sent him to the hospital numbers of times, including the time he technically died on the operating table. He’s had 3 surgeries to attempt to fix the situation but it can’t be completely fixed, and the only thing they could do was cement his lungs to his chest so when they collapse again, they won’t crush his heart.
These lung collapses happen very randomly, and sometimes for seemingly no reason at all. He’s had to pull over while casually driving to deal with a lung collapse. It’s also happened to him at previous jobs, when he exercises, and even when he’s just sitting down watching TV. If they’re bad enough, they send him to the hospital which we definitely can’t afford, as he has no health insurance.
Some days we can’t afford to eat, or get gas. Usually I make things work, but it would be so nice to be able to pay his rent without struggling to feed myself, my boyfriend, and our two cats (who always get fed before we pay for anything else, no exceptions. Also, there’s a picture of his cat, Saphirra, attached 😊) Currently, rent is $500 a month, and adding gas and food and basic essentials, I would say altogether it would be $800 a month. Unfortunately, I only make $800 a month which doesn’t help me cover my own bills or any of my own personal costs, only things we need to live.
Any amount at all will help and be GREATLY appreciated. We really aren’t the type of people to ask for help, but we do need it. Thank you again for reading and If you have any questions or need to get a hold of me feel free to email me
