SOME BACK STORY: Back in September I began feeling extremely ill, and was losing a lot of weight very rapidly, and soon realized I was having a bad flare up of my Crohn’s disease. I went into the ER and spent a few days in the hospital, and was released with antibiotics, because I was still in the middle of con season, and had obligations to fulfill and work to do. That was dumb, because I just made myself sicker, and was back into the ER two more times before a surgeon was like “Dude you have holes in your intestine, we have to cut you open NOW” and so I had emergency surgery in which a large portion of my intestines were removed (a surgery which I’d been avoiding since I was diagnosed with crohn’s at 16). I was in the hospital for about two weeks this time. I have that $67k bill I just posted, as well as the $26k bill I got the other day and separate bills for radiology and anesthesiology which are a few thousand each. I hate hate hate asking for donations out right like this, but while I recover, I physically can’t go into my day job or do much else, and I am seriously worried about not only my medical bills, but also my rent and student loan payments. I’ve applied for financial assistance from the hospital since I’m uninsured due to my pre-existing condition, age, and the fact that I work as a freelance artist, but have not yet learned if I’ll receive any help.
Thanks so much for waiting so patiently for these to become available! I’m still struggling right now to figure out how to get my bills taken care of, and could still really use some help while I recover.
Not in the US or Canada or Tea-shirts not your thing? There are other ways you can help!
- Buy some of my fandom tea blends from Adagio! I have done blends for a TON of fandoms, and at nearly 200 different blends, there’s a wide range to chose from. Plus, holidays are coming up, so, gifts!
- Check out my redbubble shop! More merchandise/fandoms available there, though RedBubble gets more of the money than I do through the Booster sales.
- I have a GoFundMe drive still running
- And I always have my donate button in my sidebar.
Again, thanks, doing this always makes me feel… weird and vaguely uncomfortable, but there really isn’t many other options for me right now.
Please consider buying a shirt, or help signal boost!
Reblog this if you pronounce “.gif” as “GIF.”
WE SHALL SEE WHICH ONE PREVAILS.
If they’d wanted it pronounced JIF, they should’ve spelled it with a f’ing J. They did not.
The ‘G’ isn’t a soft g, either. GIF stands…
