I do mean that literally.
I have no family, last surviving member.
I have no close personal friends (you know the considerate selfless kind)
And no real social media following.
I never actually cared for social media. I pretty much avoided it. I never even had a Twitter account until the accident.
Short version. I was a self employed pedicab driver(bicycle taxi) and that was the only job I truly loved doing. I was on my way home which is 2 miles from the downtown area I work in so I ride my bike n cart to and from. I get about a mile away from home and then I'm waking up in the hospital, with my spine completely fractured all up n down it. It was a hit and run. Apparently I was hit was hit hard enough that my cab and bike were completely destroyed and I was left in the road unconscious.
I have no insurance, as I said no support network and now have a $20,000 hospital bill plus a $2,000 ambulance bill on top of losing my equipment.
So in 5 months of attempting to share my GoFundMe link I have had $0 donated. There's even a video in the link on my GoFundMe that shows even after a few months of sharing I don't even have a single comment asking if I'm okay. I have shared in FB, Twitter, telegram, Instagram to no avail. The only responses I get are those from scammers. Which I'm too smart to fall for but it still sucks because it's just false hope that's being given to me.
In this time since this happen I've lost everything. I went from having a three bedroom lake house that I could easily afford on my own to now being nothing more than just a guy on a couch of someone else's place. I've been unable to work because for the longest time it was I barely able to even bend over the time my shoes.
Before this happened I normally worked two to three jobs, happily. I was the kind of person who would always be there to help others, I have even literally given homeless people the shirt off my back and the last few dollars in my pocket on several occasions. But now that I'm in a time of need I've just been left forgotten.
I don't know what to do. I don't know who to turn to because I don't have a circle, I don't have a social network. I'm pretty much running out of Hope and have long been at a point to where I really wish I didn't wake up in that hospital at all to begin with. I don't see what the point was. Everyday sense has been nothing but suffering and loneliness and just nothing.
So without having my own network of people that I can somewhat rely on what is it that I can do? Where is it that I can turn to at least just share my link and hope for something because I'm lost.
I have never needed to resort to ask each other for help. I was always the one to be the helper and if I was in a hard time I managed to just get things done myself. But I'm now at a point in my life where I feel utterly helpless and hopeless and it's killing me.. without the benefit of actually finishing the job.
And I think it really kills me is the fact that it was a hit and run and they never got caught. So I have no one I can press charges against but on top of that I don't even know who did it. I could go to the store and be in line talking to somebody randomly and that could be the person who did it to me and I have no clue.
So please without suggesting I turn to friends and family or social media in the general sense, can I be pointed in a specific direction/location/group that can provide the assistance I'm asking for and need?
I'm honestly not expecting much hope from this but I don't know what else to do.
