Micro Giving

A long time ago a friend told me about the microgiving.com website.

Pride makes it hard for me to ask anyone for money especially when I am not entirely sure how soon I can repay what I ask to borrow from friends or family. I think I’ve asked to borrow money less than a dozen times in my life. I don’t like to keep accruing debt. Sure, I find inventive, yet legal and ethical ways to supplement my income and add experience to my career. I’ve been pretty stressed out because the private school refused to lower my tuition rates even though they approved the request to attend 3/4 time instead of full time. The Transitions Advisor has also made it part of her job to badger me about how I am to pay for the remaining balance for the Fall 2013 tuition which is not covered by federal subsidized and unsubsidized loans, or awarded scholarships.

The wheelchair I had to stop using two years ago, was 11 years old, and served me well more or less. I was using a walker a friend donated to me. It went through being repaired three times before I decided to pay for a new walker out of pocket in hopes that its use would be very short term. I’m not supposed to walk much, and walking fatigues me much faster than using a wheelchair. I wonder what people who have no abilities to walk do when they need new wheelchairs and the current one is not usable. I feel like I’ve had to put my life on hold for the past two years. I’ve reduced work hours and try not to make myself crazy with guilt trips from not being as much of a productive member of society now as when I had a fully functional wheelchair to use for… well making me faster with doing anything and nearly everything.
