POTS Patient Needs Help

My name is Emily Bonnette and I have recently been diagnoised with P.O.T.S. or Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.  Every case is different but in mine it causes my heart to race, my blood pressure to drop and the stroking of my heart drops to 41%. Along with all that I daily deal with dizziness, headaches, body aches, cronic fatigue, and passing out at a moment's notice.  I currently can only get around with a walker since I am so dizzy and get too light headed when standing for any length of time.
Before I was diagnoised I was admitted to the hospital and stayed there for two weeks. No one could figure out what was wrong with me.  I had to resign from my job since I was not able to say when I would be well enough to go back to work.  Thankfully I did find a specilalist near me that is able to help.  I am still undergoing testing and changing medications to find the right formula that works for me.  I also get daily fluids through my PICC line to keep me hydrated.   A nurse comes once a week to clean my PICC line and make sure I am not getting worse. 
With all of this my husband is taking on double duty.  He is working full time, taking care of our pets, cleaning the house and caring for me.  My mother has had to move in with us to help out when he's at work.
Since I had to quit my job, and I do not know when I'll be able to go back to work, the bills are getting over whelming.  Now we have major medical bills on top of regular bills.  So I am asking for help, which isn't the easiest thing for me to do.  Please help us get out of this financial difficulty.
Thank you for taking your time to read this and if you feel like you want to donate, thank you for your support in this hard time.
