Support my recovery after accident

UPDATE
Thank you for your donations. I have great positive news that the treatment is helping little by little but I need more than ever your support so I can recover fully and return back to normal life and my studies. 

The doctors in Stockholm have recommended I continue the treatment for one year. I am still dreaming about when I will become well and able to help and make a differerence for people in the same situations.

THANK YOU
All my love
Caroline

Hello! My name is Caroline. I have just turned 24. Unfortunately after a car accident two years ago my life has changed dramatically. I got a whiplash and scoliosis and today I ain't able to work, drive or sit up normally. But what is the worst is that I had to give up studying.

Everyday I have constant pain in my neck and upper back and i cannot move my head normally. I cannot hold anything, so i need help with everything and for that reason, i moved back home to my parents.  The only thing I still do and enjoy are long walks in the forest.  

When I wake up in the morning I have a few exercises I do to help the pain go away for a while, but very quickly the pain takes over again and I need to lay down. Over the past 6 months, my body has gotten worse and I've tried all kind of treatments in Denmark without luck.  

The huge difference from living in a healthy body to suddenly live in a nonfunctional body with chronic pain is mentally a challenge and after I tried to rehabilitate with professional help it has gotten even worse - then it is hard to believe there is yet hope for me. But I still have faith and every day I calm my mind with meditation and I keep trying to letting go of the fear that I won't be cured.

I tried so many traditional and alternative treatments and medication and nothing have helped me. But i just found a specialist/professor in physiotherapy from Stockholm whose treatment actually helped me. I got my hope back. I've visited him last month and for the first time in two years, my body feels better. I am now in a dialog with him and he recommended to get 4 intensive treatments in October - but I can't afford the trip. Everything from the flight tickets to the treatment fees.

I am so truly happy that i finally found a way out of my pain nightmare, but sadly i can't afford the trip myself. I have no money since i haven't been able to work since the accident. I am 23 years old and I dream about studying in South of France, after i lived and worked in Paris when I was younger. I would love to continue to travel and I dream about helping other people in similar situations like me. I have so many dreams - I am not ready to give up on them all. 

I will be going the 3rd of October and will stay in Stockholm for 4 weeks. I would need the funding by the 1st of October.

Words can not describe how thankful I am for your thoughts and help.

THANK YOU.

Caroline, 23, Denmark
