On June 21st, I broke my ankle. Like a lot of people, I live hand to mouth and have no insurance. The hospital and doctor visits are expensive. Medical devices are expensive. Cabs to/from my medical visits are expensive. Losing wages while I can’t work is expensive. Life without the mobility to do all the things I used to do to have a decent quality of life is expensive. Asking for help is depressing as fuck, and I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t have to.
What I need MOST is money. If you’d like to donate, click here.
I also need mobility. If you are in NYC and have a car and time
(usually daytime mornings, the next of which is 7/3 around 9am-noon) to ferry me to doctor’s offices, feel free to shoot me a message. If you have a wheelchair you can loan me, that would make it easier for me to leave my home.
Some other helpful items are on my Amazon wishlist.
HUGE thanks to my friends who bought me crutches when I couldn’t get downstairs to go to the ER without them, donated money, done my laundry, carted me to hospitals and clinics, brought me groceries, dropped off an AC, had supplies shipped to my door, loaned me comic books, and bodily blocked a prying chatty patient from talking to introvert-me in a hospital waiting room.
No thanks to my roommate’s cat, who keeps dropping a toy under my crutches like he’s trying to finish me off.
