Losing My Eyesight

My name is Kemba Outerbridge. I am a 24 year old type 1 diabetic. At the tender age of 18 months old I was the youngest in Bermuda to be diagnosed. My life has been rough ever since, in and out of hospitals and consistent doctors visits. I was never shy or ashamed in front of anyone of the condition I have. 
Last year I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl named Jahnas but it was not an easy pregnancy. I was put on bed rest at 5 months due to my excessive amount of swelling due to my kidneys spilling protein. I was sent to Canada to Mount Sinai Hospital to continue my pregnancy and to deliver my daughter.
My daughter was born May 14 2016 by C-section. She came a whole month early. The doctors didnt think I was going to carry as long as I did. I remained in the hospital a week after delivery due to her high levels of jaundice. After a week we was given the ok to go home.
After 2 weeks of being home with a newborn my life took a turn for the worst. I had no sense of balance or memory. The ambulance was called which I have no memory of getting in the ambulance or the ride to the hospital. I was unconscious for 2 days. During that time I had two seizures and lost weight and strength. 
When I left the hospital to reunite with my baby I had to take my time walking and doing anything really because I had no energy. A few days later I was given the okay to return back Bermuda. On the plane ride to Bermuda I took sick and had to ask for a wheelchair to get off the plane. 
I returned home but it was no joy. I was sick everyday and was in the hospital every other week for two months. With a new baby this was not easy. 
To top all of the trouble I have been through my eyesight has gotten bad. It is so bad i have to go abroad to boston to get eye surgery. This has really changed my life. I am unable to work because of my eyes so I have to constantly ask for help. I am unable to take care of my 1 year old and as a first time mom I feel like I am missing out. I have trouble telling the difference between colors and have trouble with coordination. I do not like being out after dark because i can not see. 
I really need help. Because i am unable to work i have to depend on family to pay all the bills i have. Because i am diabetic i have to go to doctors daily which means more bills. I have over 100,000 dollars in bills and i can not do it alone.
I have realized I cannot do this on my own, as I have said my family is my number one support however our funds are being exhausted through my medical bills I would appreciate any support towards my medical bills one may be willing to offer.
