Hello! I am a mother of 38-year-old Patrycja, who has been struggling with serious health problems for many years. Patrycja moved to England 14 years ago in search of a better life. Her life unfortunately did not go well. As a result of many personal and tragic experiences, she raises three children alone (12-year-old Olivia, 10-year-old Emilia and 1.5-year-old Jagódka). My daughter loves her life and wants to be a loving and supportive mother to them. Unfortunately my daughter's health prevents her from functioning properly. Patrycja suffers from Epilepsy, anemia, hypoglycemia which affects her heart, lumbar spine injury and damaged shoulder. All of the above happened in England. It has been acquired through the slow action of the NHS doctors in Cheltenham and Gloucester. She left Poland healthy and full of energy, she worked hard and at the moment she is in a very bad condition, both physical and mental. My daughter slowly looses the remaining strength that she needs to cope with everyday life. THEREFORE I ASK FOR HELP for which I thank you in advance. The funds will be allocated for a proper diagnosis, treatment of epilepsy, rehabilitation, spine and shoulder surgery. Every day her condition is getting worse and my daughter's life is slowly fading away. General practice doctors prescribe stronger doses of painkillers, antiepileptics and psychotropics after which she feels worse. Epileptic seizures occur several times a day which has several times resulted in her falling down the stairs and therefore she broke and damaged her shoulder. In the hospital they just set it up and send her home without any stiffening or support. She was going to see an orthopedist to decide on potential operation. My daughter suffers a lot and the pain is unbearable, she has dizziness and headaches due to high doses of various medicines, she cannot maintain balance, stutters and loses sight. Doctors at D.P NHS seem completely detached from reality and neglect her health. They do not recommend additional tests that would allow them to determine and implement the correct treatment. Over the past year my daughter has had an EEG head examination and MRI scan, she was referred to a neurologist, but so far the diagnosis is unknown - only assumptions. She is currently being treated by a phone. I live in Poland and I am an elderly person. I struggle with many health problems and I cannot help her as much as I need and would like to. My husband and I occasionally help her financially as much as the situation allows, and these are not large amounts. At present the social services are trying to take care of my daughter. They bring food and take care of children. However there are days when there is nobody and no help, and we cannot afford treatment, rehabilitation and surgery. The neurologist did not provide exact costs for the treatment because they have to do some research on epilepsy and exclude whether there is a brain tumor. NHS doctors cannot make the correct diagnosis for such a long period of time. It is only assumptions. As of today, they say it's mildly resistant epilepsy, and next time it's psychogenic epilepsy, supposedly epileptic seizures. Instead of being treated by a neurologist specialist, the NHS doctor treats you. All I know is that epilepsy must be treated by making the correct diagnosis because it can lead to irreversible brain changes and can be fatal. Patrycja has disability and employment support because of a spinal injury and these are small amounts that are barely enough to support her. Added to this is family allowance for children,but only for two. Daughters love their mother very much and constantly ask: "Mummy when will you be healthy?" .48632448_159155335990308_r.jpeg
