Organized by: Fran Lee

I went to the er in June and I was complaining about my knee because it had been hurting so they did X-ray's and then I was shown the results and the news was crushing I looked at the X-ray and I could see floating debri and the Dr. started explaining everything that was wrong in my knee he told me that I had no cartridge in my knee and that because of that it is rubbing bone on bone and that I had arthritis and bone spurs and in that moment I felt defeated and lost and my depression started surfacing and in the months since learning this news I have gotten weaker and fallen dozens of times and cried because of it I hurt when I go to sleep and I hurt when I wake up in these last few months I have thought long and hard on committing suicide and I have always fought to turn my thoughts away from that but this time I thought about where to do it where my husband wouldn't see my body because I wouldn't have wanted him to see that. My family came to see me and a friend and they brought me out my depression and my father in-laws voice entered my head and he said 'Fran reclaim your life your not the person you were ' and he was right I miss who I was I would go everywhere to take pictures and I loved cooking I would make all kinds of food and I would feed family and friends and I miss doing that and I have cried multiple times and I hate to cry but falling and landing on my knee's I am gonna cry because I constantly hurt. I am trying hard to regain my life I miss my passion for cooking and I miss eating without getting sick the amount of pain I am in I have trouble eating and I went from 265 lbs to 194 lbs but I would like to one not be in pain. We also have a large number of past bills that caught up to us and we don't have the money to pay that back and they are going to start deducting my husband's checks and we can't afford that either so I feel lost. Please help me reclaim my life and get these past medical bills paid off so we aren't left broke and unable to pay rent or bills.
