My fundraiser for emergency medical expenses and repairs

Hi all,

I have carefully laid out each of the medical expenses (they are dental) and the repairs in my GoFundMe story. I understandably avoided the dentist during the pandemic, and I had to have an abscessed tooth extracted and need a large cavity filled and a full cleaning. Who knows what else they might find during my cleaning. It was over $400 for the wisdom tooth extraction and I estimate $200 each for both the filling and cleaning. I have Medicaid, which my dentist doesn’t take. I looked at those around me who take my insurance, and I don’t trust any of them.

In addition, the downstairs toilet broke and looks like it has all kinds of problems. My mom is an older widow and can’t get up our tall stairs so often. It won’t flush at all. A plumber would likely cost at least $200 for this repair.

I also am thinking about my mom’s future. I have it explained in my story how she needs to get to a new place, but the foreclosure is a problem. I have not included moving costs in my goal since I have not estimated them - especially with possible subsidized housing. But anything you could contribute to that would be greatly appreciated. I still have not heard about my disability claim.

For the fundraiser picture, this time I included one of mom and me in happier times. I hope we can get back to that.

Thanks very much,

Looks like he low-balled his target amount from the usual $3k to 1k.

If you're on Medicaid, you take what you get!  There's no such thing as "I don't trust them."  This is absolutely free healthcare, literal beggars can't be choosers.

I am sorry. There is no other, better way it could have gone.

That, and if they let him run up a large balance at 14.9% they'd be accused of 'predatory lending'.

This guy throws up a beg-a-thon every few months. He actually had the gall in one of them to say he would never ask them for money again then like a month after that statement he hit them up again saying basically “my last fundraiser here went so well I thought I’d go ahead and do another one.”

The DUmmies ponied up for him again, too!  LOL

2. It's mean, nasty, etc. for me to be this cynical, but I suspect his "disabilities" are indolence, ignorance, and being habituated to being subsidized by gooberment programs and people who bought his sob stories.

3. Did any DU-folk call out his serial GoScamMe's? If not, linking his previous beg-threads in his current one might stir up some interesting discussion. E.G., "Why, in the past year, have you done nothing to improve your circumstances?"

21. One GFM last October, one in January, one in May, and now this one. I think there were some before.

Interestingly, the OP says his mother's birthday is the 12th, but in another thread says her SS doesn't come until the 26th. That's not how SS does payments, if I'm not mistaken.

Another oddity is that the OP posted about voting, going into detail of how he took his ballot to a drop box, but no mention of Mom's vote. With Mom being a part of all these campaigns, it just seemed odd to me that he didn't say, "mom and I voted today; I took both our ballots to the drop box." I even asked about her at the time.

The OP also bought enough hearts to give away in February during DU's heart drive. Admirable, but if money is this tight, perhaps not the wisest?

Sorry if I seem cynical, but I remember a poster who took advantage of DUers for several years until being discovered.

I see poor dear Marta, the much-abused wife of Omaha Steve, tossed in $25, but despite that the fund-raiser's rather sluggish, having raised only $215 thus far, apparently enough to pay the electric bill but not the water bill.

Matt needs to get down to his local Job Service office.

My fundraiser for emergency medical expenses and repairs

Hi all,

I have carefully laid out each of the medical expenses (they are dental) and the repairs in my GoFundMe story. I understandably avoided the dentist during the pandemic, and I had to have an abscessed tooth extracted and need a large cavity filled and a full cleaning. Who knows what else they might find during my cleaning.

Most likely dick residue and rotten sperm. :loser: :loser: :loser: :loser:

23. Matt, you have two "gofundme's" open right now

I think people are starting to question the legitimacy of this one. My red flag was that you have medicaid but "don't trust the dentists that accept it."

Are you and your Mom OK? Perhaps you should contact a state agency at this point- a good social worker could help you navigate the care you guys need.

24. Here are the previous GFMs you've posted.

There are discrepancies that have caught my and others' eye.

You offered to give hearts away to folks right after saying the electricity was going to be cut off, and now the water is going to be cut off.

Maybe put money like that toward your utilities?

Here are the previous GFMs for anyone interested:

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100216254697

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100216659843

And then there is this month's GFM. As another poster pointed out, you still have a couple of the previous ones open.

It is so important she gets the toilet repaired. She is ok but might have sprained her ankle.
