My son has sensory integration problems that make him unable to wear glasses. His eyes are terrible and can be helped with Lasik but it is not covered under insurance. I need to do this for him. It will make him able to drive and then he can finally have a normal life.
I cannot afford this on my pay. Working people seem to always be in limbo, we cannot afford what we need, but we do not qualify for help. We pay taxes to pay for the poor to have the things that we cannot. Then our pay is less because of taxes, making it harder and harder to live. Costs go up, pay does not. We live in limbo.
So here is my rant, and here is my hope, that maybe 4200 people will give me a dollar each so my son can have a life. I have worked since I was 17 and no one ever helped me with anything. I paid my own way through college and will be paying some of that for the rest of my life. I never wanted to ask for help, but I am asking for my son, because he means more to me than my own pride. I would crawl on my knees if it would help. I would sell everything I have to help my child if I could, but I have nothing that would be worth this amount. I am at the foot of a mountain that I need to climb and I have no tools to climb with.
I know we all have our own problems. This is mine, right now. I am sorry to even ask but I am asking. They say the eyes are the window to the soul, but to one who cannot see they can be a prison.
