Help Unpuzzle Alison’s Brain Fund

Dear Friends,

Many of you know that I have been struggling with major mental health issues for years. Last spring it got very bad and I was hospitalized for 9 days for my depression.

This spring my depression has gotten worse and cannot be handled with just medication. I have decided with the advice of my doctors to step up my treatment with out patient procedures known as ECT. These sessions will last 3 to 4 weeks, 3 times a week.

I will not be able to work during this time. Due to my depression, I have not been able to go to work consistantly for the last year. I have used all my leave, my funds and my family’s funds. 

I am humbling asking for donations to help cover my psychiatrist’s bills (which are not covered by insurance) and living expenses for the next couple of months starting immediately. 

I will keep you all posted as I can with my progress.
Thank you,
