Please help if you can...

I'm restarting this gofundme account as recently our car and home AC went out within days of each other.  I realize that air conditioning is really a privlege and not a necessity.  Unfortunately I have several medical conditions and take medications that cause me to be very sensitive to sunlight and heat.  When I am in sunlight or extreme heat I can break out in a rash, or feel dizzy like I'm going to pass out.  My current diagnosis are trigeminal neuralgia, interstitial cystitis, endometriosis, fibromyalgia and IBS.  I am on tegretol which is an anti-seizure medication however I take it for trigeminal neuralgia.  (Doctors call this the suicide disease because it is so painful, so as you can imagine this medication is extremely necessary)  

"Tegretol can cause photosensitivity and can reduce sweating which impairs the body's ability to adapt to heat. Patients should avoid saunas and other very hot environments."

I have reached out for help before, and although it hurts my pride I really have no other choice right now.  I filed for disability last year shortly before I was fired from my job as a vet tech.  I am still awaiting an answer, my hearing was March 30th and my lawyer says it will be another 2-4 months to recieve a decision.  By then it will be in the middle of summer, and my body simply won't be able to take the heat.  


If you can't donate please pass this along, we need all the help we can get right now.  I really appreciate you taking the time to read my story.  <3  I love you all!
