I Hate Doing This…


I hate doing this again and I know I will probably get flamed but I have run out of options.

I have an appointment Thursday morning with my oncologist. I want to cancel it because we don’t have any money and the trip is 220 miles round trip. I saw my primary care doctor yesterday for my monthly check-up. She reminded me about my oncology appointment and I told her that I was going to cancel it. She said I really need to keep the appointment if there was any way possible. I have lost over 60 pounds since May and she is really worried about that. My blood pressure was low yesterday and she lowered the dosage of my blood pressure medicine and took me off my diuretic. I kind of know what she is worried about but I just don’t want to think about it.

Hubby also has an appointment out of town next week. I worry about him getting to his appointment more than I do about getting to mine and he worries more about me getting to mine. He has been having trouble keeping his blood sugar levels under control. They swing high to low so he needs to see his endocrinologist.

The mess we are in with our bank has put us in a hole or we would have had enough money to get to our appointments. (see previous post for details).

I have tried every place I can think of to ask for help with our travel cost but none of them have any funds available because they have been sending everything they get to help storm victims.

If anyone can help by purchasing a pen, I would be very grateful. Also, if someone could post this at politicalgates, that would be a big help. For some reason, I can’t access their site anymore but Kathleen left a comment here saying that I could ask for help there if I needed to.

I have been having trouble with my computer. I guess a setting is messed up because I can’t even comment here. When I try I get an error message that says my browser is out of date but I am using IE 9. I have to reply to comments by email.

I know I have asked for help a lot lately and I apologize but I just don’t know what else to do. Selling pens is the only way we have to make money and our luck has been awful lately. Hubby was all set to sell pens at a carnival on October 27 but Sandy was supposed to be hitting us with tropical storm force winds so it was canceled. Thankfully, Sandy was a no show here other than a good stiff breeze.

Here is the link for the pen site:


Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. To those who will leave rude replies, my husband and I are going through some rough times. I hope you never have to deal with several problems at once that just wipe you out financially.

Blade, I REALLY don't think people would mind you asking for help if you also posted regular blog posts. The only thing you've posted in MONTHS besides pleas for help is a genetic email from Kristy Patullo which she has already copied and pasted to people ad nauseum. And yes, people DID feel you only included that just to say you posted something along with the requests for help.

I think most of the people in this community (ie trig truthers) are extremely compassionate- after all, our sole collective commonality lies in our concern over a small boy we've never met and never will meet.

It's the fact that it seems this blog is ONLY here for you to ask for help which bothers people. If you want to have a blog where you ask for assistance, that's fine. But call it "The Daily Life & Unfortunate Trials of Blade & Hubby"- NOT "Sarah's Scandals".

I feel like I personally have been very understanding toward you and you have never replied to me at all. I have offered numerous avenues toward community outreach as well as asking you how I could donate if I don't have a pay pal account. You have never answered any of those questions or acknowledged the lengthy replies regarding options I have suggested.

And I'm not looking for a pat on the head here, but when you ONLY ask for money and don't write any real posts or even answer people trying to offer polite, well intentioned advice- then yes, you probably will have some people who lob a harsh word at you. It doesn't mean they're "flamers" or "haters".

I truly wish the best for you. Get well soon.

I just want to remind you of this-

At the very top of this blog, before you say ANYTHING else, you say "THE PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG IS TO DISCUSS SARAH PALIN". . .etc.

If you don't feel you have the physical and emotional wherewithal to blog about Sarah, maybe it's time to change this blog's mission statement. I am not trying to "flame"- only trying to be practical.
