Help me pay for physical therapy and medication

My names Melanie johnson. Im 27. Im a full time employee and college student. Sadly. I have been battling severe illness for a very long time. It started when i was 19 and gave birth to my daughter. Blood poured out the epidural site and they ended up finding out i have a huge tumor (lipoma) in my spinal cord and wrapped around. Ive had 3 major back operations. Ive had to get fusion has well. I was quadriplegic and and incomplete paraplegic. I have bladder and bowel issues. I had to get an implanted device to help me use the restroom. I also had to get an illiac stent due to severe leg swelling and excruciating pain. I suffer daily from pain. Nerve pain. Back pain. Spasms. Spasticity and the list goes on. And on. I have to start physical therapy again to keep me walking and out of a wheel chair and also to help me lose alot of weight. and i am also on a 200 dollar monthly bladder medication along side thousands of dollars of medical bills. And i desperately need help. I am pay check to paycheck trying to pay everything and it is killing me mentally. I am starting to see a pain management doctor which i will more than likely need injections and i dont even know how much thatll add up. Because this will be something i deal with for the rest of my life. I cannot get on Texas disability because they said i dont have enough work history. And i cannot afford a lawyer. Anything will help and i will be truly blessed and grateful for it all.
