I am Akailia Green and I am 17 years old. I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematous (SLE) in 2015 following a prolonged period of illness. I have faced and continue to face several difficulties since my diagnosis as I developed a number of complications and as a result of this illness. I have chronic pain all over my body and at times require up to four different painkillers to reduce my pain. I have also had numerous extended periods of loss of vision. I suffer with constipation and more recently I have developed prolapse of the uterus with retention of urine. I was further diagnosed with seizure disorder and at times have 6 back to back seizures in a day. These medical issues require frequent in hospital care and has led to the doctor determining that a number of tests should be done to rule out possible causes as to why I am not able to feel anything below the waist which includes MRI spine and brain and also a lumber puncture to help them in further diagnoses. However, we are unable to come up with the funds needed for treatment and I kindly asking for your support to continue this fight.
Despite my situation and not being in school for lengthy periods of time. I was able to sit six CSEC with the assistance of a writer and had managed to pass five. I do not believe in giving up in spite of all these obstacles. Please help me win this fight too!
