I've been instructed to ask for help if I need it, and to accept help if it's offered, and I've been asked about a million times if there's anything anyone can do. I say I can't think of anything, and everything really is covered, except for finances.
I'm quite behind on my normal monthly bills, utilities and stuff. I was already behind before all this started, but it's worse now because I've hardly been home or had time to pay the bills and because it's not really at the top of the list of things I'm thinking about. On the other hand, if my cell phone gets cut off (it's very close), I'm in big trouble. I'm using it constantly.
Medical insurance pays 80% until our out-of-pocket reaches the $2000 deductible, at which point they start paying 100%. I would bet that our medical bills (before insurance) are probably ten times that. I don't know where all that will come from.
I thought I had a life insurance policy on Tandra, but I don't. My dad has said he will cover any final expenses, but that will be a loan I will need to pay back. I am one hundred percent okay with that, even if it takes me years to pay off, but anything to offset that will help.
And please don't be intimidated by the large numbers - four people sending $25 makes a big difference.
You can send "virtual cash" through paypal, and if you want, you can do it anonymously. If you don't want to do it anonymously, please include a note telling me who you are, as I can't always connect e-mail addresses to LJ names. You don't need a PayPal account to donate - a credit or debit card is okay. PayPal transactions are secure. I don't promise to be accountable for any money you send - I'll allocate it at my discretion. Hopefully you trust me to be responsible about it and realize I'm not really in the mood to blow it on video games and beer.
I'll put the link here and on my profile.
