My health has been an absolute shambles for the last couple of years, ever since I gave birth to my fifth child. I've seen countless doctors, had so many tests run I'm amazed I still have blood flowing through my veins, and have gone through several rounds of treatments for vitamin deficiencies and other problems that continue to be found as we dig deeper.
And now my daughters are showing symptoms.
My oldest, Freja, is continually sick with nausea, fatigue, aches and pains, and a host of other symptoms that keep her from doing activities and just being a kid.
My younger daughter, Ola, has always been underweight, pale, and complains of various issues that have prevented her from doing a lot of things she wants to do.
I've taken them in for all sorts of tests and appointments, but - as so often happens - everything continually comes back normal. Doctors shrug and say "it must just be hormones as they head towards puberty" or "they'll grow out of it" and send us back home.
But I know that something isn't right.
I would love to be able to take them to a functional practitioner or integrative doctor, but those don't fall under our insurance (we have Medicaid, I mean. It doesn't do much.) and they're expensive. They're really expensive.
So I'm asking for help.
If you can donate, that would be amazing. If you can't, even just a share of this would be just as amazing. I want to see my girls playing and running around and feeling good, feeling great! And it's so hard to make that happen with limited resources.
Thank you in advance for any help you give. Or even just some good thoughts and prayers. Everything is welcome.
Also, I am a writer. If you would like to support in a different way, you can sign up to my Patreon and help that way. It would give you access to full-length books, stories, and all kinds of things for as little as a $1 a month. (As someone who cannot work because of health issues, this helps to make up some of the difference in our household income.) https://www.patreon.com/quenbyolson?fan_landing=true
