I am 24 year old single mom. My son is 6, I became a mom at a young age as you can tell. I am in college and I am currently living alone with my son. I don’t have my family near me which makes things worse and I wish I did but I also hate asking them for help. Just recently, it feels like everything piled up for us. My son needs surgery. When he was a baby he had surgery to drop one of his testicles down, now at 6 the doctors say that it was unsuccessful and there was malpractice and would need to re-do. He is currently going through ultrasounds and testing to see our options. I fought so hard for his insurance to not be removed, and thankfully they allowed him to keep it. Unfortunately, they have found I have thyroid problems. Around a year ago, my eyes were bulging out and I started having eye problems and I thought it could have been some sort of infection, which it was not. This ended up being caused by what I am not told is hyperthyroidism. I am extremely insecure now, my eyes look like they are about to pop out of my head and I am on steroids to regulate my thyroid but I was told it won’t help my eyes. Surgery for would be my next option to fix my eye sockets. Unlike my son, I don’t have insurance to cover any medical surgery and I’ve been paying out of pocket for all my medication (which is a lot of medications daily for my thyroid). Apart from these medical issues, I pay out of pocket for school and have a $2000 bill I’m scared I won’t be able to pay and I’ll be dropped this coming semester. Thinking it would help, I got a credit card out which was a super dumb idea and I’ve been paying what I can with what I work since I can’t work full time because of school but it was the worst mistake because now I have a $2000 debt that I never meant to get myself into but has helped (now I understand how people get into all their debt) I am afraid I won’t be able to pay anything and won’t be able to pay our rent or living. I feel worthless and feel so unlucky at the moment and I’m hoping anyone out there can help in any way possible or just send positive prayers or vibes our way. I currently feel like the worst mother possible to my little boy. Whoever you are, thank you for taking the time to read my story.
