Medical Costs & Housing

In March of 2020 I was attacked on my way home from work.
The man grabbed me, shook me, coughed in my face & laughed ‘You’re sick now’
I thought it was a cruel joke. I was wrong.
I had contracted Covid & I never recovered.

I have been diagnosed with ME/CFS, POTS & MCAS.
I am mostly bed bound & barely able to manage the most basic of tasks. 
I have no financial support from from family or government & no supplemental insurance.
I have been unable to work since, after over 2 years my savings have been wiped out & my hope of a spontaneous recovery has dwindled.
I’ve lost my business & my autonomy. 
 
I have developed neurological impairments  & cardiac issues that would benefit from treatments outside the scope of what is covered by our healthcare system.

Treatments for managing my symptoms are scarce & expensive, I'm hoping to be able to cover the cost as well as ongoing medications, assistive devices, IV treatments, physiotherapy & most importantly housing.
 
I am desperate to remain housed, to be a useful community member & I'm hoping with your help I can once again have agency in my life. 
 
The last 2 years has been one of the most frightening & humbling times of my life.
I thank anyone who contributes or shares.
