I am here to ask for support, as I do not have any other options at this moment and the situation is getting worse.
I was on my way to my first day of work when I felt a sharp pain on my right side of the abdomen. One hour later I had to return as it got harder for me to breathe. After that, I made an appointment to the doctor's to investigate the unbearable pain. I soon found out that I had a weak intestinal wall that was suspected of rupture and possibly cost my life.
During the next three months I have followed a strict treatment that included collagen to repair my intestinal wall and a lot of bed rest, to avoid rupture. Not being able to work, the bills started to pile up, also due to the increasing prices caused by the pandemic. I didn't have any savings because I had just graduated from university at that time and my health insurance was not validated by the employer because I had to leave work before even starting. I have also tried to sell all my paintings, but with no luck and my family tried to help as much as they could.
The search for another workplace has started, but it was almost an impossible mission because of the pandemic restrictions and because I have an artistic training and I wasn’t being considered for any essential jobs available during lockdown. In the end, to be able to keep up with all the costs I had to initiate an endless cycle of loans whose commissions keep rising even now and I am not able to pay back and continue to pay for living costs.
I am trying to recover my health, also to recover financially and start creating art again. I am actively searching for a job to live a stable life, but I still need help to cope with the situation and be in control again. As little help as it is possible it would mean the world to me and bring back the colors into my life.
Thank you for taking the time to read and may you be safe in this uncertain times that we live in.
All the love,
