Mid-August I was diagnosed with calcific tendonitis after suddenly being unable to raise my left arm. The condition is extremely painful and I was barely able to sleep for a week while we were trying to find a pain management solution.
Today upon receiving the results from my ultrasound, I was also diagnosed with a tear in my supraspinatus tendon.
This means I'm off work until likely November.
As most of you know Lindsey and I just opened our own salon. This involved pouring all of my savings and financial resources into the business leaving me in the worst possible position to have to spontaneously take off several months off from work. As a business owner I am unable to claim EI either and of course we have yet to get benefits set up as we've been so busy just getting our salon open. Thankfully the salon helps provide a small passive income but it is not enough to live off of.
I'm hoping to raise money to help pay for all the physio, meds, time off work and any other fun costs coming my way while I try to heal.
I will likely also be doing a few other fundraising efforts and events so please contact me if you'd be interested in helping by donating items or time as well.
I'm ridiculously independent person, I love my work, I love working hard and I want to get back to doing what I love (in a healthier way) as soon as possible.
It's so hard and so humbling to be in a position of asking for help, so I really appreciate you reading this, even your positive thoughts are a help.
