Disabled and Broke

Shelia A, Alabama U

Hello people. It's almost 6 in the morning and I haven't went to sleep yet. I have had insomnia since I was a child. I'm 32 years old now. I often spend my sleepless nights watching movies, reading, or writing if I am not in pain. I have been disabled now for about 3 years. I have a rare disease called Hidradenitis Suppurativa. If you Google it, you might not want to look at the pictures. They are gross honestly, but that was the hand I was dealt in life. Medical bills. I owe enough in medical bills to pay someone with a pretty awesome job a year's salary. I have quite a few other bills too that I feel I will never be able to pay. My disability check gives me just enough to survive. I couldn't imagine what I would do if it weren't for my writing skills and the kindness of others. I sometime make a few extra dollars doing freelance writing work. In my late night forges through the Internet, I stumbled upon this site and decided to give it a try. I thought the idea was a bit embarrassing but it couldn't hurt if I could get help paying some bills or even just some decent lip gloss. So if your heart is feeling generous or you totally sympathize with me after viewing gross examples of this awful disease I have on Google, I am open and appreciative! Good day! I also made a blog about dealing with my illness that I plan on using to educate people and let people know what its like to live like this. ebonydiva06.wix.com/mylifemypain
