Chronic Health Issues are Keeping Me Out of Work, & I Need Urgent Help with a Medical Bill Please!

My Story:

I'm in my mid-twenties, and I currently work as an Assistant Manager in retail. I'm a hard worker, but I constantly struggle with multiple chronic health issues that 'flare up' and cause me to miss work. Working in retail can be difficult work as it is, but with my health issues causing me problems lately, it's been impossible to work normal hours.

In fact, my condition recently got so bad that I had to spend an entire week in the hospital, and I'll be out of work for at least six more weeks in addition to that due to having to be in intensive care. This means that I'll be out of work on an unpaid medical leave of absence for six weeks with nothing coming in. As a result of this situation, my manager has threatened to demote me which would lower my hourly wage, thereby putting me in a an even worse financial position. On top of all of that, the medical bills that I incurred from my hospital stay are incredibly high, and I don't have any way to pay them. I have insurance, but even with that, my medical bills are too much for me to pay on my own. I'm worried that leaving them unpaid will have a really negative impact on my financial situation long-term, and it could lead to my wages being garnished down the line.

I'm humbly asking for help with this medical bill because without it, I'll have no way of being able to pay it back, especially if my manager follows through with their threat to demote me. Mentally, it's difficult to deal with the stress of this situation, and it's left me with a lot of feelings of hopelessness to be completely honest. I want nothing more than to get back to work so that I can keep my promotion, but the stress that I'm under is causing me a lot of problems with my health. That's why getting help with this medical bill is so important to my well-being both physically and financially speaking. I want to thank everyone who helps me through this difficult time in advance, and I promise to work hard to pay your help forward once I'm back on my feet.
