The Story

Long story short, 2014 was the year of medical hell and and my health is still pretty much crap. Until the nurses and docs figure out treatment that actually works for me — last medication for pain and neurological symptoms had me coughing up coagulated blood for a few weeks, that was fun — my medical bills will continue to climb. I do still have a job…for now, but I am closer than I like to think to having to sell everything I own and. I don’t know, honestly? I’ve hit the level of hopelessness, despair, and panic where thinking is sluggish and brackish.


What I’m fumbling at horribly is this: If anyone is able to give anything, I’d be immensely grateful. No, seriously. Anything. The bank and the hospital will take pennies and so will I.

But only if you’re able to give.

Let me repeat that.

Only give money to help me out if you are able to do so without adding undue stress to yourself.

We’re all struggling out here, I know my struggle is nowhere near the worst, so please. Please, please, *please* do not put yourself out trying to help me. Rather than donate your money, donate some good energy my way in whatever form that is for you, but only if you have *that* to spare. Trust me, I understand only having enough energy to keep yourself vertical and not falling into traffic, so don’t send what you can’t spare.

I hate asking for help or bothering people but I’m running out of options and maybe, just maybe, this long shot will actually bear fruit. Without being a loan with 70% interest. The internet has proven to contain wonderful people.

Please share as, again, any little bit helps. And more little bits from more people help even more.

Thank you all for whatever you’re able to do.

I've not posted in a while because my life got hectic in August & didn't really let up. But that's irrelevant.

The fundraiser ends in 5 days & I'm not extending the deadline because y'all have helped me so much this year, it's amazing. I am truly grateful for all you've done. I wouldn't still be here w/o y'all. I wouldn't feel right asking for more when you've already been so generous. I'll figure the rest out on my own.

Thank you all again! ??????

Update as of August, 12 2015:I’ll need about $1500 in the next 2-3 weeks. Still need about $6000 total, but $1500 by 2-3 Wednesdays from now is the immediate goal.

I know it’s a lot to ask, but I’m alone trying to keep body & soul together. Please know that every cent you all have donated has gone to the hospital, my mortgage lender, my utility bills, or to buy groceries. I basically wouldn’t still be here right now without the generosity of you all. I can’t thank you enough.

If paying via the fundraiser isn't your preference, but you still want to donate:

my paypal is the.lost.maenad (at) gmail (dot) com

direct PayPal donate link

direct Square Cash donate link

If folks prefer to donate via paypal or, I update the YC total w/ offline donations so everything’s on the same page, if you will.

Keep boosting the signal, please! Share it far and wide! Even if you’re not able to donate, someone else might. And even if you’re only able to give $5, $10, $20, those small donations add up, believe me! I might actually be able to do this with your help and I cannot thank you enough, but I will still try, so thank you.

I'm desperate here, folks. 1 day & $2900 left; if I can get $400, I can extend deadline. Please help, if you can!

If you prefer paypal,

I enter Paypal donations as offline donations to keep everything on the up and up.
