From my friends

Time for the big girl pants.

We need help. I have bills to pay and no real money to pay it.

According to all the paperwork I have (though no one ever picks up a phone to confirm this) Wash's prescription plan is changing as of July and I will be responsible for the first $3-6,000.00 of his prescription cost each month.
I can barely afford the gas and co-payment to the doctors as is!

There's the car repair; but without that Wash cannot even go outside.

There's electricity, which of course goes up in the summer, again Wash cannot control his own body temperature so he needs to be in a controlled environment. That's all expensive.

Food. Car insurance and then this month as well registration costs and emissions tests.

I would like to have money so I can get myself some summer clothes. I own 3 skirts, one pair of long pants and one pair of capri length pants. Yes, I am really being honest here. I'm not all "into" clothes, but you know, I can appreciate wearing something that is not 7 or more years old and with half the seams worn/torn out.
It would be nice to be able to wear clean new clothes this summer. For Wash as well, but I tend to take care of him first, so he has gotten new clothes about twice in the past year.

I need help. I cannot do this on my own.

This is me, being honest and open and asking any of you who can to please, if you can, help me to keep Wash in my care. Help me keep him from being put into a "home". Help please so I do not have to think about more things of my own (of course not Wash's) that I could sell just so my husband can die here, in the place he/we set up as "home".

Apologies. My day started after about 4 hours of sleep with vomiting and loud car alarms that went on for almost 2 hours. Today is a day where my fears control me, rather than the other way around.

Every day we live brings new challenges and fears, but I also have -have - to hope that it brings new chances and opportunities as well.


  1. I got a couple extra hours at work this week, so I went ahead and sent you a few bucks. Not enough. Nothing like enough. :( I hope you can find 100 more like me.

  2. I'm passing this on to my friends on twitter. I'm sorry can't give more. Much love to you both.

  3. Yesterday, my (paid off) car broke down. Because I live with my parents, I went through my finances today and realized that I could afford a car payment. When, today, my dad told me that my car would be fine and that I would have maybe a few hundred dollars to pay to get it fixed, I started to think about what I would buy. I hope that what I was able to give helps. Although I can't give you the any of the luck I've had, I do hope things get better for you.

  4. I'm broke right now but will be trying to figure out a way to help. Are there any THINGS I can provide you with? As a middle-aged person, I might have some of those.

    Sorry I haven't replied in a while. I read your blog regularly but have had a bear of a time commenting. Much, much love.
