Over the years I've been in and out of the hospital, experiencing severe joint pains, flares all over my body, swelling of the ankles It's been an emotional roller coaster for me. The medications that were prescribed for me are ones I have to take every day in order to supress the disease just so I can have a chance of a normal life.
Since the last time I've posted. Everything went downhill. I've been admitted into the hospital twice. My kidneys have now gone bad and I'm now on dialysis. The cost of dialysis is 10,000 JMD per session and it's recommended by my Nephrologist that I receive treatment three times per week, however, we can only afford two sessions per week.
I have to travel 1 &1/2 hours to another parish in order to receive the treatment because all the Dialysis centre in my area is full . Traveling plus getting a transportation has been very costly. My blood count is at an all time low. (Anemic) so my doctor recommended that blood transfusion be done immediately.
I've also developed another condition called ulcerative colitis. As if dealing with one thing is not bad enough.
I'm not able to work any more. And the doctors visits and medication along with dialysis has become a big financial strain on me and my family and I have no health insurance to assist. So, I'm writing again because I'm in need of help.
I would like to extend thanks to every single person who has donated. I truly from the bottom of my heart is very grateful. God bless you all.
Any donation however small it is, will be a blessing and will bring me one step closer to a longer life with my amazing son, and my loving/supportive family.
Thank you so much.
