All, I am the Farkette in question. My ex beat me so badly I lost my teeth. My back was damaged when he threw me into a hutch, which then fell on me. Combined with my extant medical issues, I am racking up more than I can handle just seeking relief. Any help is appreciated. Alternatively, I make custom wreaths from fabric. If you're interested, I can offer that as a tangible return on investment. Thank you for checking this out.
 
2022-06-27 12:16:23 PM  
I'm in

I don't have much because I'm on disability for PTSD from service, but healthcare is free in my country and karma is a biatch so I gave what little I can. Take care, fellow farker.

Any of you rich farkers care to pony up and I'll put in a good word with God for you if I get there first.

You may not have to pay anything.
Go to a website, or Women Shelter's website/advocacy group.
See what legal services they offer.
Often...with a negociation (with the lawyer's/social worker) a Hosptial will often wave the bill or discount it
They (Hosptials) are used to this.....in fact people with health care NEVER get their health insurance paying out full price for big bills, because the insurance company negotiates charges with Hospitial...usually a fraction of the first 'charge'.
Do some searching for advocacy groups and resources. There's a good chance they can get it all removed.

I'm disabled. The hospital refuses to do anything for me :( I still owe money from when my son was born, but you can't get blood from a turnip. Hell, even my TF was a gift. The joys of being on a fixed income.

Thank you, and boy I wish healthcare was free here. But America is such a farked up place in so many ways.

I'm not talking the hospital. You need an advocate to speak for you to the Hosptial. A women's clinic (not Hospital) might offer those services, or have reference for attorneys that work pro-bono.
I've had to use those services in the past with a local Gay org to get some legal services for negotiating debt, until my state pension kicked in.
They provided a lawyer to file papers with the debt companies.
I'd be VERY surprised if you could not find similar advocates for battered women. Give it look.

Not sure if that would violate the Fark terms, or I would. Not like I want the guy to enjoy a life of comfort.

Ah, I misunderstood. I can contact the local women's shelter and see. I know they had a severe lack of funding for a while and had cut back services.
 
2022-06-27 5:55:37 PM  
I genuinely love our little Fark family and I'm glad I'm finally in a place where I can help contribute.

Donated but anonymously. Cause y'all are weirdos and don't need to know my name. Best of luck with the fresh start. My best to you, Anastacya.
 
2022-06-27 5:58:41 PM  
I wish you the best, and I'd echo the suggestions to see if you can get a reduced payment on HCAHPS, if your on fixed income and Medicaid, you shouldn't be paying ridiculous amounts of money. F*ck the American healthcare model.

/I gave a bit
//I wish you better days ahead

Generally...it won't be a cost for the shelter. But a referral to a lawyer (or lists of lawyers) that works 'pro-bono' to file papers on your behalf to get debt dismissed.
 
2022-06-27 6:00:17 PM  
Done.  Good luck.

Bassets are the best dogs. I could do without the farts, though. And thank you so very much!

Hi, I am really sorry to hear this happened to you. Please do check out your local domestic violence shelter hotline, or the national hotline at 800-799-7233. They can assist you with financials, legal advocacy, shelter if needed, TPO filing. 
Also, check this website out: https://crimevictimscomp.ga.gov/our-programs/victims-compensation/ It's federally funded and I know that our local DV agency in GA refers clients there all the time. 
I wish you well and healing.

Thank you, I will do that. This abuse happened over a decade ago, so I have no idea if they would even be able to help. I will see, though!

Thank you for giving to a complete stranger. I'm the strange Farkette who likes basset hounds and generally complains about how much mine farts. Not much else to me :P
