I really hate to ask this of you my friends, especially as I’ve been so out of touch lately. But I’m in really badly in need of help. Any help, as I’m just doing poorly regarding health and finance.|
Since before moving to Denver, I’ve been long suffering health-wise with severe back problems with scoliosis and degenerating hemorrhaged disks, causing me to occasionally limp due to nerve damage and pain in my back and leg, and that’s just part of my medical issues. As a matter of fact, I’ve recently been off my blood pressure meds for a week as I’m too broke to purchase them.
Along with this, I’ve got somewhere near $1,000 in debit to the hospital and doctors office since I’ve been here. I’ve been laid out in the hospital a few times due to intense tailbone pain flares that my meds haven’t been helping. Thus far, they still wont recommend surgery even though I’ve been dealing with these problems for about a decade or so. Currently trying medication for nerve damage and hoping it helps, but it’s been a month or so and no changes unfortunately.
I’ve been working on getting assistance, getting foodstamps currently and trying to get disability assistance. My health is too bad for me to work now and it’s really frustrating, it is really hard not being able to work and not having money is not great either. All you can do is wait for the paper wheels of bureaucracy between doctors and the government regarding getting help. Also working on getting medical pay assistance programs to pay down bills to continue seeing doctors and maintaining my health at the very least a balanced level.
And I’ve got to finish moving my stuff out from SLC as the storage space I’ve been using thanks to my generous friends Dylan and Flynn is needed freed up. Also, I need the rest of my stuff as everything I own worth selling is still there, primarily my books, toys, and collectables. Much of it will need to be sold for bills and living expenses and just limited space in general. Most of these things will be sold slowly via ebay as it is the nature of the beast, but once I have my things I can get started. Even selling just comics for like a buck an issue out of my large collection will compound into actual bill paying money.
So, to be blunt, I’m cyberbegging, as I’ve no other options I can think of at the immediate moment. I’m not proud about it but I don’t know what to do anymore. I don’t want to be a total bum however so anyone who can help me by donating to paypal I’ll gladly do hand drawn or digital art for or offer up choice books, comics, ect in exchange or appreciation.
My paypal email is: email@example.com and I believe if gifted there is no charge (?), If you’d like artwork by me or anything else I can provide, send a note/ pm to me via FB or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In advance, thank you all regardless.
