I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. I have been out of work for a while, and I don't qualify for disability.
I have been helped financially by my dad but it has gotten to the point where it is hard for him to keep funding me. He makes a lot of money but he has been spending thousands on me medically trying to figure out what is wrong.
I have no job, I feel too sick to work, and I am going more and more downhill. I don't know what else to do.
My mom and I used to be so close but I feel she just sees me as a financial drain. I have been to the ER many times and she never asks how I am or what happened.
When I have said I feel like I am slowly dying she says I am being ridiculous and annoying her, yet I remember her saying it was so sad about Avril Lavigne and Yolanda Foster and they really went through it, but that is basically where I am at.
The other day my phone got cut off. I told her I wouldn't be able to call because of it. My dad ended up paying it so I could at least make calls if something happens to me, but she was questioning me today asking how I paid for it,
and then basically went into one saying she is upset because my grandma has dementia and lives in another country and she may not be able to get over there in time to see her before she goes. I totally get that is heartbreaking, but when it comes to me she just seems to lack so much empathy.
My lease at my apartment is up in 2 months and I don't know what to do. I have been trying to find some sort of job but I just haven't had luck. I feel like I have nobody and this illness is going to win and I am going to end up homeless.
(breaking up the post for easier reading for many here)
First, are you age 25 or younger? For anyone who is, the Lymelight Foundation gives grants.
Next, I think there was a woman somewhere in the eastern part of the US saying she was offering up to 4K for adults with Lyme/co's who needed funding. Does anyone here know who this is and what her website is?
Do you think you could work from home, probably computer work? I could find a link about that.
Btw, sounds like your dad has been very helpful. And that's too bad about your mom's attitude - you don't deserve that when you're ill, or for that matter, anytime in your life. Be good to yourself...
