Hello, I am in my 40’s and a 18 yr. Army Veteran. I got hurt in the military & was not able to walk, nor have full range of body function for 3 yrs. In that time, I gained a lot of weight, not being able to move much or exercise. My Fiance left me because I couldn’t have sex. I went into severe depression So, adding to what I was already going through I was in a very bad place in my life. With lots of physical therapy & injections I am back to being able to walk with not much pain & can do so many things I couldn’t before. I lost a lot of the weight & working on loosing my last 40 pounds for my goal while trying to gain my confidence back; although when I look in the mirror I dont see the girl that I was. I have much loose skin now & it drapes down my front, it’s hard to feel comfortable & I have other issues that the skin arises like shaft skin & odor due to the over lapping skin. I put deodorant so it wont sweat. It is hard to fit in my old clothes & I went to the Dr. & he said it’s stretched skin which won’t go back to place, so it has to be cut. Last year I had the money (15G) but my aunt told me they had diagnosed her with Cancer & I flew her to live with me & began taking her to good Dr.’s to do test on her. She started treatment here and Thank God one of the Cancers they found is gone. Before she left, the Dr. told me she had a yr to live but I am faithful that she will be here with us for more than that. She is strong & thanks for the treatments & God she is doing well. The year before that, I took care of my sister that fell into kidney failure. These are the reasons I have no money in the bank for me. What I had saved when I was able to work was spent on them for their health. My friend was the one that told me to come here. she said “You have gone to countries & helped so many & I watch you be kind to everyone & anyone, you never do anything for yourself, let other’s do something for you for once”. I never do anything for a reward or a trophy. I love being kind. I like to see others be happy & well. I live in a Fixed Military Pension which at mid month Im broke by paying the bills & food. I have an introvert teen that I solely support. I just want to take my life back. I don’t want to keep hiding because my ex Fiance told me that my body was disgusting. I became fat because of my injuries for serving my country. The procedure to cut the drape of skin costs $15,000. $13,000 for the cutting of the loose skin & $2,000 for someone to take care of me & help me to shower & cook for my kid. I have re written this 4 times, because I feel ashamed of asking & maybe no one will listen. But I am hopeful, maybe someone is kind enough and will understand my situation and will help me.? They say Karma gives you back what you give to others 3 times fold. I will pray you all will hear me & I can cut this hanging drape of loose skin that it’s also a part of those dark day of my life. God Bless you all. Thank you in advance and I am sorry for being forward with this. I really hope someone or many of you helps me. It will be beautiful to see that there’s so many other’s with a heart like mine. I love helping other’s and I have always paid blessings forward. Please help me look in the mirror and not feel disgusting. It’s not only hanging loose skin, it’s a whole mental & physical challenge.
