Lessons we can all learn from this thread:

1) It's always darkest before the dawn
2) You're not alone and people do care, but they have to know what you need - ask!
3) Yeshuos Hashem k'heref ayin

Thank you, FF!

Oh my goodness, I am so stunned! Surprised Very Happy

I can truly start the new year with a fresh start, and get my life back under control. Thank you Hashem for putting so many wonderful people in my life!

Now I have a question for everybody - a few people told me I should either raise my goal, or start a new campaign. I have some health issues that I have been putting on the back burner, because all the specialists are out of network and my insurance (Maccabi) doesn't want to give me permission. I don't have the strength to fight with all the paperwork involved, I just want to get better. On top of that, some of my treatments may be off-label, which means they won't be covered anyway.

I have Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, and many doctors don't recognize it, or try to tell you it's "just" Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It is so much more than that, and it does not get better over time. I need help to manage it, because there is no known cure yet. https://www.meaction.net/about/what-is-me/

I also need to get some dental work done, and I haven't been able to upgrade my coverage from "sheli" to "zahav".

This is on top of my depression and anxiety!

So here's my problem. I am already so grateful, I feel like I should be satisfied for now. I don't want anyone to think that I am greedy, because that is so far from the truth. I ran the numbers last night, and every single shekel of the campaign money is accounted for, and after I cover all my basic expenses there will be nothing left.

So, what should I do? I am not used to feeling like this, and being in this position. I've never had to do a fundraising campaign before. My local social services are doing all they can for me, but they can't pay my medical expenses.

@FranticFrummie As someone who works in fundraising online I would suggest that you raise your goal, and add an update explaining that you want to raise additional money to cover medical expenses. Much hatzlacha and good health in the new year.
