I need help. As much as I hate doing this, I’m kind of desperate.
I’ve been applying for jobs since December of 2013. I’ve not gotten a single interview and I desperately need medical attention.
I don’t know if it’s cause of how forcefully I slammed backwards on my right foot when I got hit by the car, but my ingrown toenail got infected. I can’t even touch the tip with a cotton ball without it hurting. The surgery is going to run me about $500 because I’m without insurance. I don’t know what antibiotics and anesthetics will cost, but the main cost of the surgery is my concern right now. As of now, I can’t even wear shoes because of it.
The next major issue I need to see a doctor for is the sharp pains where period cramps usually are. I have a history of ovarian cysts, and the women in my family have a history of ovarian and cervical cancers. the pain is so bad that I sometimes can’t walk, and I end up passing out from them. I can’t go to planned parenthood, because they won’t work with people with certain types of cysts. Seeing a normal gyno can run me about $500, because of the precautions they have to take; I have to have a sonogram first, to make sure it’s okay to have a pelvic exam.
Problem is, I don’t have a job. My mom is on a fixed income and my boyfriend is paying back loans and stuff, as well as providing for the house. We just don’t have that kind of money. I don’t know what I can do in exchange for donations that would be worth it for everyone; all I’m any good at is tarot reading. That being said, the donation button is right at the top of my blog. If it doesn’t work, my paypal is linked to firstname.lastname@example.org. I refuse to use gofundme after the issue with the Darren Wilson funding page(they wouldn’t take it down, despite the amount of hate speech filling up the page).
Anyway, thank you in advance for any donations. If you’d like a tarot reading in exchange for yours, please send me a message with the name or email you used for the donation so that I can make sure you really donated. I know that sounds a bit silly, but I’ve had people in the past tell me that they donated when they didn’t, just to get a free reading.
So I’ve had a few people make some suggestions to me about getting medical care; I do not qualify for medicaid, SNAP, or WIC. I am unmarried, childless, not on disability, and I can’t legally claim my mother as a dependent. My application for assistance programs are instantly denied because I don’t meet any of those requirements. I volunteered at Health and Human Services for a very long time, and I know what the requirements are(nevermind my mother used to work there for 17 years before retiring 2 years ago). So that’s a suggestion that simply won’t work. I’ve fully exhausted all of my options, and asking for help here is all I can do.
