When It Rains It Pours

Last month my computer went down, well more then down, the motherboard is fried and I still owe $300.00 on it.
I owe about $1300.00 for my doctor bills plus $8000.00 for Debbie's burial, now her doctor bills are coming in plus her hospital bill, so far for her around $23,000.00, if my math adds up right that comes to $32,600.00.
Now where in the hell am I suppose to get this dough?
I barely have enough to bury her.
I'm barley hanging in there with just the regular bills!
What's next?
Bring it on !

And as always , thanks for listening!

Tell the hospital & doctors you'll pay five bucks a week. At least you'll be making an effort and keep them off your back. I'm sorry you have to go through this on top of your grieving. Yeah, seems when it rains it pours, hang in there.

Like everyone has mentioned already, you just call everyone up and make payment plans. One year, Brandon racked up over 40,000 in medical bills after insurance when he had his brain surgery. We're still paying on that bill. We pay $50 a month.

Sending you big hugs.

John,

I had no idea that this had happened... I rarely sign on to Blogger anymore. I'm sorry my friend. When I started reading back through your journal, my heart broke for you. I know the pain I have suffered for the loss of my sister, I could not imagine loosing my LOVE...my everything. I know the pain is unbearable right now my friend...try to give it time and it will at least be tolerable eventually... This is such a horrible..horrible thing! I am so sorry John....

I agree with what every one else said; let the hospital know you don't have the money to pay it; they should be able to put you in the right direction on getting this resolved; sorry you are going through this

I feel for you. I know a family who has been devastated moneywise and emotionaly from a member trying to help a young lady and she turned on them. They will never be able to recoup. So much sadness in the world.

Our healthcare system is for the birds ... it angers me to think you're stuck with all these medical bills.
Best,
Marty

Hi Johnny

I guess I am ready your entries backwards. Well I am glad Deb's hospital bills will be taken care of what a relief. As far as yours aren't you considered disabled, does the state not help or any veterans benefits? It is so stressful to have to worry about stupid bills after your loss. I wish I was rich so I could help you.

Also check with the hospital regarding finanacial assistance if the insurance doesn't cover it all. It's a tought situation for sure. But hang in there & make those phone calls...be sure you keep a record of who you talk to, that date and what arrangements were made. You may have to get yourself a notebook and keep a log. Hang in there my friend~Linda in Washington
