I’m moving to Colorado Springs on August 22nd (arriving the 24th) with pretty much no money and relying on my family to help me out (which I know is a burden on them). If you’ve been following me, you know I also have thousands of dollars in medical bills from going to the ER five times over the past four months due to complicated asthma related to allergies.

How did this happen, you ask? I made the critical mistake of moving to Oregon in 2016, not knowing this area has some of the highest pollen counts in the world. I’m not even allergic to trees or grass, and it has still given me breathing problems. Coupled with the high humidity and my mold allergy (which I did not have before moving here), I can’t leave my apartment without wearing a face mask. Sometimes I have shortness of breath indoors, too.

So if anyone wants to donate to the “Let’s get Laura out of central Oregon so she doesn’t die from respiratory issues” fund, here’s a link to my Paypal. No fees or anything like that. It all goes to me. And I could really really use it.

I work 40-50 hours a week, and basically all of my income goes to rent, bills, and food, and I’m not going to have anything to spare for that first month of rent in my new place (which they want upfront). So anything is really appreciated. Thank you everyone.

And here’s a link to an article about the Willamette Valley where I live. It has the highest pollen counts in the world, and four times the limit for what is considered “very high.” I didn’t have asthma until I lived here for a year, my sleep apnea has gone from very mild to severe, and I’ve already had two sinus infections and bronchitis in the past six months. I’m really not being hyperbolic when I say I need to get the hell out so I don’t die. My situation is pretty dire.
