I have to start up by saying that this is really a last resort and it puts me at shame to have to ask, also please forgive my imperfect English.
So to understand fully, I was born with a congenital malformation called Tricuspid Atresia, for which I had 4 surgeries (at 2 days old 2 months old 2 years old 7 years old), one open hearted called a fontan (the one at 2 years old) that saved my life and made me live actively , I studied and worked in animal health , have also been a ballet and horseback riding teacher, changed carrier path for nursing, I was thriving even with only half an heart.
Until in the beginning of March 2020, I fell 3 days into fever coma and starting this date, my health degraded so much I needed to stop working. I couldn’t walk more than 2 minutes before automatically de-saturating to 78( normal adult is 95-100) became dizzy at random moments, had cyanosis to my hand and feet and pins and needles sensations in my legs , feet, hands and arms even when sit, became out of breath at any effort , even climbing just one stair or changing the position of my body. I couldn’t get out of my house also because of health risks of getting caught something. I had many medical exams, that demonstrated that my fontan had became invalid, my in heart saturation at exercise was 22 (normal adult is 70), and that the shape of my heart had changed to a very thin balloon that did not pumped blood efficiently in my body. In July 2020, I had my first open heart surgery making me even more at risk, so I couldn’t go out. For 3 month, my health went better and better , and I started exercising, even if I still couldn’t go to work due to the risks of getting anything and it compromising my newly done surgery.
In November, it degraded again, and on Friday 13, I had a second heart operation by thoracotomy this time, to modify things on my heart andplace a pacemaker in bonus. To this day I have a paper telling me that I can’t work until the pandemic is over.
I survived on my economies, and then on government help for people that couldn’t work because of COVID and health issues , but now they have cut this help, so not only am I afraid I won’t have enough to pay for the end of the month bills, but I also am in big debts as because I did not made enough money in my year, I will have to re-pay to the government some of the help I got. So I can’t work because I am too at risk, right now even the common cold could be really fatal for me as my lungs are not 100% back from my thoracotomy and that my heart is very fragile from the 2 heart surgeries, but I can’t get help too ...
I always try to do things by myself , be independent, but this time I need help and thank everyone of you in advance for your help.
I also want to say sorry for the 200 approximate dollars I spent for my cosplay in October that were not my patreon money, before today, if I had known that my help would have been gone like that , I would not have spent anything,I want to be transparent with you...
For every donation , I shall send you a small thank you reward <3
