Denises PseudoTumor / Neurology Brain Issues

$145 of $2,800 goal

Raised by 3 people in 23 days
Well, this is no fun! EEG (videotaped for multiple days in my home, with wires monitoring my brain and neurological issues). This is in addition to a lumbar puncture (spinal tap to remove excess fluid on my brain, while I'm awake and having to bend over the whole time). Tons of ongoing medications , more MRIs and other specialists too.
I have gotten a brain injury from violent attacks (domestic, work, and vehicle), on 3 seperate occasions; the symptoms were very noticeable after a work injury and got terribly bad or triggered after the recent car accident. It is now time to get help with extremities of a Cerebral PseudoTumor that gives the same symptoms as a large brain tumor, without the mass. It is absolutely horrifying, and I am out of work and out of money and in debt with medical bill's. Please God make this stop!
I am a huge supporter for so many people, including complete strangers. I am that person who randomly pays for a stranger's meals, donates to the needy, stands up for recovery as well as the good most others have a hard time seeing. I have a huge heart, but, I now realize that t is absolutely time to ask for help with these medical bills, and living.  Thank you so much for reading this and for your continued prayers as well. If you are able to donate, please consider doing so, this is an immediate and desperate need.

Bad news today...
$400 for 2 months!!! And my sons birthday is tomorrow! Please, if you can help, please do. After waiting a month for word on some kind of income source during this time, I was informed that my extended short-term disability claim was denied- due to a new Neurologist- who in her words stated "I am not in the business of anyone missing work". I also refuse to include my personal therapy records. I understand the reason for some focus on stress triggers, however, some things are just too personal. So, I have made the decision to continue go back to work & deal with the dizziness, nausea,forgetfulness, ears ringing & everything else I am going through. I must do this to get back afloat while keeping what is left of my dignity.
However, I have only received just over $400 last month & will be receiving NOTHING at all for all of this month.
Bills are here (Rent, electric, phone, storage, food, car payment, car insurance, gas, medical co-payments, pharmacies, & my sons birthday tomorrow!
Please if you can help, Please, Please, Please help.

PS: Benign Intracranial Hypertension is when the brain believes there is a brain tumor (-aka- you get all the symptoms of a large brain tumor without the mass).
Therefore it produces an excessive amount of spinal fluid. ... death has not been proven however there are complications that come with the disease that can kill a person from this.

I found out that I am having several 'staring' seizures a day with extreme dizziness & nausea, TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), Tinnitus in ears, Gurd, & IBS, not to mention the chronic pain with my neck & back injuries.
I am very confused by this & worried. The brain injuries are pretty hard to deal with & the pain & forgetfulness takes alot of patience, understanding, and time to calm down. I am having symptoms daily, averaging every 45 minutes. Yet, another MRI & Lumbar punch (removing fluid off my brain from my spine), as well as Medicines continue, due to the EEG because of the large shocks they are seeing. Stress seems to agitate it more, but, that's not the reason these things are happening.
And what really bothers me with the various tumors throughout my body & other things I am going through; is when the room starts to spin, dizziness, slight hearing problems, sometimes shooting pains that go numb down my arms & legs, slurred speech from sudden confusion, the pain, forgetfulness, the stress, & personality changes too...

On top of it all, I have no more money left for copayments to even see the neurologist now. I haven't had a paycheck for a over month now because short term disability is refusing to admit the my dr.'s have sent in multiple paperwork with exact notes. I am asking for help with paying my rent, and utilities, car payment, storage, food, and every single one of these appointments as well as prescriptions too. I am desperately needing help with all these things, please If you can donate please do and please share and prayers are always welcomed as well.
Thank you

There's alot I don't discuss on my medical - the pain is huge & the co-payments & gas & missed work has officially broke me!) I have NO money left to pay for my emergency appointment tomorrow, NO money for gas, NO money left for any bills, nothing.
I am so worried about the telephone call from my neurologist regarding the 'several irregular shocks found on my EEG.
I am a nervous wreck, so much pain and emotions flying high. I have no more money left for this copayment to see the neurologist now. I haven't had a paycheck for weeks now because the short term disability worker is refusing to admit the my dr has sent in multiple paperwork. My only check this past month was just barely over $400 -- that's supposed to help pay my rent, and utilities, car payment, storage, food, and every single one of these appointments as well as prescriptions & gas too. I am desperately needing help with all these things, please If you can donate please do and please share and prayers are always welcomed as well.
Thank you
