help with medical
Organized by: toni gullett
Hello my name is Toni I am 47 year old woman who recently had to stop working after twenty years over medical issues. I had to receive back surgery back in Dec.2015 And haven't been able to return to work because of complications. Which after m.r.i. I've got to have another back surgery this Tuesday ,which is very scary for me, especially after already receiving one,and now am worse. I feel my life has stopped. I suffer every day with severe pain in my low back and my legs ,so bad that I'm now using a cane and at times can barely do that. I really need this surgery I am so tired of suffering in every way thinkable. This isn't only surgery I am facing, in about a month I will have a hysterectomy done ,then later I'll have stents put in my legs from p.a.d. if this surgery isn't done I'll loose my leg from amputation. I face other medical issues as well. Needless to say how desperate I am for help. I need these surgeries to save me. I still feel I've gotta lot of living left to do. And during this time I've not had any income and things has gotten terrible. I go usually day to day trying to find help. I'm checking on disability but even then you have to wait forever to receive. .so in the meantime I don't know what to do. My insurance at work has gotten behind and I can't get it paid without help and until I can do differently I need help. I've even got medicine I can't pick up. And for next couple months it will be worse.I'm so depressed to be in this situation I've worked and done for myself for so many years and now can't even by things I need for house or personal hygiene. It's embarrassing to be this way . I never thought this would be me. I wish I could just go back to working but I cant. All i know to do is ask for help so I can try and get better, or face the worse, and praying that doesn't happen to me I feel I've been through to much already. If I could go back I probably would not have went through first surgery even though I needed it, I thought I'd be better and back to work by now, but now not sure if I'll ever be able to work again. Please have a open heart and help me in any way. I want to live again and would be nice to be able to smile again. And with your help could be possible. This one surgery I'm going to owe 4,000.00 dollars , my test from one hospital is 1000.00 this isn't counting other test that has to be done or copays to doctors or priir tests. Its getting to overwhelming and im down on my knees pleading for help. The majority of money will go to hospital and doctor bills. Some will pay on my insurance to keep it up. And rest will be used for personal to keep me on my feet till I have time to change things as this was unexpected for me ,and it's one thing after another. I know my friends are getting tired of hearing me complain but it's not easy being in this situation either I never thought I would be doing this but here I am asking someone to help. Even if I meet this goal it want cover everything but will put a great dent in my problems. Thank you and God Bless. May no one have to face things like this or other who face worse.
