You have lost all communication with your arms and legs and most of your muscles... You feel like a stranger in your own body.
Hey! My name is Ariella (17) and i have CIDP, also known as Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy.
I was diagnosed two years ago with this rare auto immune illness that left me 100% dependent on others.
I needs help to dress and feed myself and other day to day matters, that i was able to do with no help, have now become a long and sometimes even a frustrating task.
I have been working hard to get my life back to normal, positive thoughts and lots of love from my surroundings (lost weight that i have gained from the steroids and i can now hold small things, yay!) the next step is makeing changes to our home that will eventually help me become more independent - such as a walk in shower, a stair lift and stair rails.
On top of that my amazing parents will be able to pay off medical bills and any other costs that where brought upon them since i got sick.
Any amount will be truly appreciated! Please contact us with any questions. Thank you for your help and for taking a moment to read my story.
Be good to one another
