User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeFirst and foremost I would like to say, thank you. I know most people would look at my financial hardship and would not think twice about it being difficult to pay, but to me, it means the world. I am currently unable to properly do the functions of my job and an unexpected medical bill made my tight budget even tighter and made worry about how I was going to take of basic needs for me and my dogs. This help gives me much needed breathing room and will help me in so many ways not just financially. Once again, thank you and have a blessed day.

Missed Work to Get Treatment For Mental Health, Please Help With Outstanding Medical Bill

My Story:

I am a single dog owner to the two of the best friends with four legs someone could ask for. I work full-time as a care specialist at a call center and work part time as an aspiring advertising professional.

I earn enough to make ends meet, however in late September symptoms of my bipolar disorder became too severe and I was unable to do my job effectively. My employer granted me unpaid time off in order to adjust medication dosage as needed. While I am improving some, I am still not stable enough to work right now. I will be returning in December. I am stretching what I can and have been fasting to save on food costs. I have an outstanding medical bill that I need help with and I simply cannot afford at this time.

This funding will help me be able to work on fixing and stabilizing my bipolar disorder rather than rushing back to work while still unstable. I desire nothing more than to work, I know that will start with getting my health in order. Things were beginning to improve financially before my health took a turn for the worse, after my health improved I am confident I will be back on that path. Your help would help get me back on my feet after my recent downfalls.
