In addition to all the above, Sharon is suffering with insomnia, three or four nights a week she does not sleep at all and the other nights-one maybe two hours and that is all. She is also on several powerful drugs for her pain but they are preventing her from having other necessary procedures done. She has a severely perforated eardrum that needs to be replaced. She needs cataract surgery. She needs to have a colonoscopy (which she has never had) because she has health symptoms that need to be investigated. But, she cannot have these procedures done while she is still taking these drugs.
Right now, the solution is to change her diet which must be dairy-free, gluten-free and low-carbohydrate. Treatment for the TMJD (which is slowly being destroyed by her arthritis in the TMJ) and correction of the bad dental work (by Dr Michael Gelb and his team of doctors), would enable her to begin eating more like a normal person and eat the diet necessary to fight diabetes and neuropathy and also have a positive effect on her other health problems. Then she could address the issue of eliminating the drugs she is taking (some of which she should not be on at her age).
The expense for this solution (correction for TMJD and bad dental work and then followed by the therapy for her neuropathy) is way beyond our financial capability and this has become so urgent. In addition to the expense is the fact that I would have to take time off of work for the traveling and to assist in changing Sharon’s diet. I do have a couple of weeks of vacation pay I could use but after that I would need financial support to take any more time off. And so I ask, I plead for your financial help. Please give whatever you can! Every donation, no matter what the amount, will help and be greatly appreciated. Even if all you can do is share this page, please do so. It will be so very greatly appreciated!!
