Today marks one year since my cat, Tigre, ran in front of me and I fell onto the floor. I can never forget that moment. The damage it did was not only to my feet, but has had a ripple effect throughout my whole body. I was already weak and debilitated due to being bedridden for 25 years due to an accident to my hips as well as having Sympathetic Reflex Dystrophy, Fibromyalgia among the multitude of ailments that I have. It is difficult for many people to understand what this has done to my body.
I have to say that this last year has been the worst year of my life, not only experiencing new levels of being disabled, but the loss of my precious Isis. I do not feel sorry for myself, because I realize that life is not always a bed of roses.
The bright spot out of this whole year has been those of you who have kept me going financially as well as mentally with your love and support. I am grateful to every one of you who has stood by me this past year.
It is not easy exposing my whole life to the world, but it was necessary in order to survive. You never know what you might have to go through to survive. So many people that have contacted me and are regular contributors have been homeless or seriously ill and understand what it feels like.
There are good people in the world who do care and I have been blessed many times over by their kindness. I have met angels wearing the disguise of ordinary people living ordinary lives.
Whatever you are going through know that it doesn’t hurt to reach out and let people know how you are suffering because there may be someone out there who can help you. Sure there will be detractors, but that’s where you need to be strong inside of your spirit and fight with everything you have got to survive. That’s what I have been doing and if I can do it so can someone else.
This morning I came very close to falling once again. The muscles in my right ankle basically collapsed and I almost went down, but was able to grab my cane and I did not hit the floor. For that I am deeply grateful. It did do damage to my right foot and ankle the one that got so badly damaged last year. My foot is black and in a great deal of pain. Using ice to keep inflammation down. I really could use a caregiver at night for at least a few days. So if it’s possible for you to donate I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, Billie
If you can donate $5.00 it would be greatly appreciated. My washing machine needs repairing along with my vacuum cleaner and other household objects. I cannot live without a washing machine. Doing laundry in a public machine is just not good for my health. I am grateful no matter what! Many blessings, Billie
I am so grateful to those of you who have donated over the past week. Besides being helpful it mean so much that you care about my survival. For anyone reading this it should restore your faith in humanity that there are good people out there who genuinely care about others. Remember no donation is too small. Many blessings, Billie
A big thank you with deep gratitude for those of you who helped with your donations pay my rent. Without it I would not be here now. I live on the edge of homelessness all the time. The stress is overwhelming. Any amount donated is received with gratitude and appreciation. Remember no donation is too small. Remember the donation amount you see accumulated here has been received over the past Twenty Months and not current. Thank you. Many blessings, Billie
It has been 20 MONTHS since I started this donation campaign. I thank those of you who have contributed so generously. I still need financial help to pay for my rent and caregivers. If you can donate $5.00 it would help. Many people look at the amount that I have made and think that it’s all been done in one day. NOT TRUE. I am not receiving many donations and I want people to understand that this has been a long on going process because the need for me to be taken care of will not end until my death. Thank you for your kindness and generosity, Billie
If you feel that my spiritual work has been of any value in your life and can spare a little extra money please donate. From my last message I made it clear how bad my health is and that I have to depend more and more on my caregivers. Not only that-everything I own so old it’s just falling apart, pretty much like me. :) I need all of you Earth angels help. Remember no donation is too small. Many blessings, Billie
I believe a picture speaks louder than words. On the left is me in August, 2014 and on the right is me in July, 2015. I have never recovered from the fall I took last September. My muscles will not support me to be upright and you can see how Rene has to hold me to walk a few steps. Your donations are keeping me alive. Remember there is no amount to small. Thank you so much for helping and please share this story wherever you can. Many blessings, Billie
Congratulations to Pete who has won the Free Customized Painting from Catherine Valued at roughly $1,000.00. I thank Pete for the donation and Catherine for donating her time and energy to help me gather donations. I know that both of you are being blessed. Perhaps Catherine would be willing to do this again if people would let her know that it was something they desire. So if you like what she was offering please make a comment. Many blessings, Billie
The PAST 21 MONTHS I have received Generous donations, for which I am extremely grateful. I am a 64 year old single woman with NO FAMILY who has been crippled/bedridden for 25 years due to an accident to my hips. I also have Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Neural Muscular Degeneration, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's disease and Crohn's Disease to name a few of my medical conditions. I have very little muscle strength, and I must rely on caregivers for even my most basic needs such as bathing, cooking, and general health care. All of my family is deceased. I have nowhere to turn, so I'm reaching out for help. Due to the rate of my deterioration, I don't have much time left. I want to have as much quality of life as possible before I pass.
21 months ago I fell when no one was here and I have not been able to walk on my own. My apartment is too small for me to use a wheelchair, plus I am not able to operate the controls. Thanks to the loving donations I have received over the past 21 months I have been able to pay for caregivers and physical therapy. I fell again in September, 2014. I simply don’t have the strength to keep myself up right even with a walker. After this fall my body has changed tremendously and so far I still am not able to walk. I have become more dependent than ever on my caregivers.
For 3 decades I have been a speaker, lecturer, teacher, and holistic practitioner who has helped many people over the years to heal and find their joy. Despite My physical limitations over the past years I have never stopped helping others.
With your help I can continue my daily spiritual work and I could remain in my apartment and be taken care of by caregivers. I have been a strong independent woman all of my life and I want to remain independent as much as possible until my time to pass comes.
No donation is too small! If you are unable to make a donation please share this page on Facebook, email, or anywhere else that you can. I thank you in advance for your help.
