My name is Nikki, my husband is Rory. Our necessity outweighs our embarrassment, and we're asking for help. I've been unable to work for the past three years due to chronic illness.
First it was a pinched sciatic nerve, which was due to a bulging disc.
Then the disc ruptured after a year of conservative treatment and I had to have a spinal fusion.
It has taken me a year and lots of physical therapy to be able to move like normal, but I've now been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and am in constant all over pain.
I started seeing a neurologist the begimning of August because I have chronic debilitating migraines now as well.
I'm waiting for a determination from social security on whether or not they deem me disabled.
We find ourselves short of air, and funds, and will be very grateful for any help you can provide.
