We could really use a hand about now...

So I hate that my first post in a long time, a very long time indeed at this location, being a request for help. But we need help rather badly right now. We have been in financial difficulties for some time now, but while we have insurance that will cover our medical expenses from Dave being in the hospital, our financial problems are becoming acute. There will be expenses related to Dave's recovery and extraneous expenses are coming due over the next few weeks that I can't cover, not the least being a need for repairs to keep our van on the road. I'm not big on asking for help, but I'm really not sure what else to do.

I am a student, trying to finish my undergrad and get on towards a PhD in neuropsychology. I am also an only parent of an 11 and a 5 year old boys. All three of us are being treated for mental illness and it is a constant struggle to keep moving forward. Recently David, my five year old had surgery that removed a portion of his bowel. There were complications and as such, I have spent most of the last nine days and counting in the hospital.

I really don't want anything from anyone who can't rightly afford to help. But if you happen to be in a position to do so, we could really use some help about now.

And I am going to be getting back to some blogging shortly. I am not sure if I will be blogging here at all. I will definitely be blogging at a group blog about issues of sex and culture and possibly at another group blog.
