I’m a sever diabetic with neuropathy in both legs and feet. I have developed a diabetic ulcer on my right foot big toe. It cannot heal unless I am able to stay off the foot as much as possible. The work I do at the moment does not allow for this, as it is very physically demanding. I have short term disability that I can take, but it pays 60% of my base pay. That equals $6 an hour. I simply cannot survive on this amount and be able to pay bills and medical expenses.
I am asking for help with this issue, as I feel I’ve run out of options and I need to heal badly. The amount I’ve included represents what I would need to cover my rent (which cannot be met on $6/hr) and some medical necessities for 6 months…which I believe I need to heal properly (and was suggested by a doctor I take)
I know times are hard all around, and am aware that so many people are in dire straits. I truly appreciate your taking the time to read this, and thank you for your consideration.
