I am a student studying in foreign, here in South Korea, after I came here , a month later I was diagnosed with an illness, and I had to quit going college for a month and find a separate housing. I had to bear the expenses and it was overwhelming(I am from India and price of everything is 5 times or more) as I had to do my treatments for 1 year and half, I was scholarship student but the financial expense was a burden for me so I tried skipping meals to save for my future expenses. Because of my health I was unable to catch up with my studies and that made me depressed. I have to complete my research work and for that I'll have to raise my living and research expenses, and even if I want to I can't work on student visa. I am trying my best to make ends meet but to extend my visa and to complete my education, I am in need of money. I have a good percentage of 96 in my Masters' and I am currently working on my thesisbut I can't progress on it because I need fund for my surveys and interviews. I will be needing it around end of this year as I have to work on my visa and thesis progression. I am stressed every moment and can't focus on anything because of the financial thing, I just wake up and feel like I won't have money to pay my rent and all. I try to save every penny and eat a meal a day to save for rent.
My doctor suggested that I can't afford to get that illness again because it might be life threatening, so I am on my regular medical checkup and along with that I have to do my thesis work.I will really appreciate anything, and I will be really thankful. I will really appreciate it.
