The picture you see is absolutely terrifying, because that is the cost of life-sustaining medications for a month for me, for HIV.
I unfortunately caught it early this year, and it has ruined my whole life.
I lost my job, I lost my identity, and I lost my will to live.
I don’t want to make this a long-winded plea for help, but I had to get on government assistance in order to get this medication covered. I was working before, but looking back on it, if I would not have quit that job, I would be getting sicker and sicker, because the job would not have covered this medication.
I am in a position now in my life, unless I can make over 20-30.00 an hour, or find a really good job with great health insurance, I wouldn’t be able to afford my medication.
I am behind right now on my bills because of being on public assistance, and because of all this, and other things I won’t go into, everyday is a struggle just to get out of bed; I feel depressed, I feel suicidal, and I feel helpless.
I don’t know what to do, I either choose a job where I can make money to survive, or live off government assistance just to be able to survive.
I am terrified, and I have asked friends and family to financially help me, but they are in situations where they cannot help either.
I am desperate at this point, and I am asking Go Fund Me, if someone can find it in their heart to help me out, to at the very least help me get these bills caught up a bit, I will be forever grateful.
I am not in a financial position to repay anything, but if you could help me pay these bills, or even help me with a job that could pay for this medication, I would be truly, forever grateful.
Thank you for listening.
I apologize for the rambling, but my mind has been anything but sound lately.
