A tick bit me and now I'm broke

Many of you know how hard I have been fighting to figure out, other than a car accident with my brother in 1998, why I've had chronic pain since the age of 15, and how much of a financial toll that has taken, including imaging, specialist, alternative health, chiropractic, and surgical care.  

Things didn't get better. They started to get worse, I didn't take good care of myself because I started believing I would never feel good again. 

So last November I had to move back in with my parents after financial independence since the age of 19.  
When I came out here, I saw a famous Naturopath who was scratching her head until she finally diagnosed me with chronic Lyme Disease (see link below for more information).  I now have to take 20+ meds and supplements a day for the next 3-5 years and will have countless doctor visits and labs.

I also have depression, panic disorder and PTSD from losing my piano career due to pain from the accident  I had a full ride to possibly the best music conservatory in the nation and had to walk away from it right as I was getting to my prime, so mental health and medications are a must-need for me.  

I HATE ASKING FOR MONEY but I am in desperate need since I'm in the worst stages of Lyme and am not able to work.  I don't even want to say what I owe because it makes me cry, but it's a lot.  Any little bit of help would be WONDERFUL to help me get out of debt and to continue to receive the medical care I desperately need.  Much love to you all and f*ck ticks.
