My Mom Needs Me, But I Need Help With Transportation

(c) 2019, Crystal S. Kauffman

Current Situation:  

Mom is on a strict diet and she has to absolutely lose weight or she WILL DIE very soon. She is not a bad person, but she has a “comfort food addiction” and she is diminished mental compacity, as well as being depressed she is because is alone all the time. So, she is very important to me. I WILL be there for her and I will absolutely make this happen. Currently, I need to somehow get a ride once a week on (Tues or Thurs) when Cardiac doc is there. I will go hang out with her for most of the day to boost her morale and hopefully get her back. 

I am trying to figure this out. I am SSI recipient, cancer survivor, with health issues of my own. Also, I am starting over again after divorce. I don’t want to ask, but I cannot make this happen alone. The bus is way too far from me.  

Uber is about $12.00 one way, during cheap times. So, $24.00 for one day back and forth ride. 
Lyft is few bucks difference. 

Cash App: $crystalska 
I dont use paypal. 

 Long Term Goal 

The healthcare team is trying to move her to Heartland right near me, but she requires special care, equipment, and frankly it may not happen. This place loves her and so do I. Honestly, I will be there for her and I will work with her care team. Honestly, ya’ll it is not good at all! She may not be here much longer. She is having heart issues. 

She is mom, my sister (my grandparents raised me), and now my child (I have to save her from herself! 
We are forcing her to do this and she is pissed and so depressed 
I can work with anything! Thank you and pray for her. 


She has been placed on oxygen in bed because Shortness of Breath due to the weight. She cannot stand very long and when coming back from activities, she cannot stand or assist the staff. 

She if being lifted using a lift. She has made bad choices, but who cares at this point! She deserves love too and support! 

The person I spent time with was not my mom. I want my mom back! I am barely making it now on my own, so if just help till I figure out how to budget this new expense into my monthly check.  

Please help us to help her. Thank you. 
Once I figure out cost, I will be there more if I have. Not one-person deserves to be alone! 

I need Uber card and I need to get a bus card. I will Uber to nearest bus stop and ride bus to mom and I will do same to get home. Which will make it $12 a day instead of $24.
*****You can send Uber gift cards numbers too…
