Once school started, my blogging came to an abrupt halt.. I’m sorry about that!
It’s almost February, my birth month. This year will be the last time I turn a number that starts with a 2. I can’t believe that much time has passed already. I still feel like a kid!
But as people ask what I want for my birthday, it’s hard to respond. Sure, material things are nice, but really, honestly, the thing I want most for my birthday would be one less bill to worry about. Specifically, the lingering medical bills from my emergency gall bladder removal last year.
I’m one of the lucky ones who had health insurance, but even still, my bills total about $2600. I struggle to keep up with my everyday bills, yet alone have the money to pay this off. I’m back in school, too, so there goes even more of my available resources. I hate to be one of “those people”, and I could start a lengthy debate about the state of health care in this country, but I thought I might see if I could have any luck getting help with this from the internet. I’m going to stick up a donate button… you don’t have to give me a penny, of course, and I don’t blame you if you don’t. But if you’ve been lucky enough to have a little bit of expendable income, and want to help out someone who really is struggling but still trying to make a better future for themselves, please see if you can find it in your heart to donate. Even $1 will help.
I’ll keep updating on how close to my goal I’ve gotten, if anything happens.
Hopefully, my birthday wish can come true this year.
