Journal entry by Kelli McDonald

I have had a challenging year. Having had a medical hospitalization (not covered by insurance), procedure, and surgery for kidney stones. I also lost a job mid-summer that was meant to carry me through. Now I am facing another mental health struggle. I have been pretty open about this with my friends and family, hoping to shine a light on mental illness and recovery, reducing stigma. I just was released from a week long psychiatric hospital stay where I had medication adjusted and therapy. Tomorrow I head into a residential program for further treatment and support. All of this has put major stress on my finances. In order to afford the medical bills, and moving for my job as a school nurse for special needs that begins the end of this month... I am going to need support to make all of that happen. I am humbled to be asking anything of you, but also know that people have asked how they can help. Any donations would be very greatly appreciated to help me through this difficult time. I would also greatly appreciate your prayers during this time as I enter treatment. Please feel free to share the page information as well. Thank you - Love, Kelli
