PLEASE DONATE, NO MATTER HOW SMALL, £5 OR £50 OR £500 - NO MATTER WHAT, PLEASE HELP ME GET OUT TO INDIA
I've been watching 'The Real Marigold Hotel' on BBC iPlayer, where 8 well known seniors go to India to see if they could retire out there, or at the very least, see if they can get their health issues sorted out.
It got me thinking if I should look in to treatment elsewhere in the world to get my problems sorted out, as it seems I have fallen down in to the cracks of the NHS system as things are not bad enough to go in and fix just yet, and one injection I am on has stopped Ankylosing Spondylitis it in its tracks but its not making it get better, yet its not bad enough to go in and fix.
My neck has problems as well that needs looking at, sporadic trapped nerve / spinal cord apparently. I also have issues with both my knees and my left hip and leg in between. I almost forgot my Carpal Tunnel.
Going to India is the option, I can't keep living between the gaps of a system, being a drain on the NHS for my medication month after month, year after year, it is no way to live.
If I went private in the UK it would cost many thousands more than out in India. I really want to make this happen and I need help. I have been trying to do research and have been in touch with a few private hospitals around the Mumbai and Jaipur area for information.
I have set up a website that I will keep updating www.philengland.com/health
I will keep the webpage updated while I am in the UK, and then when I do get out to India, will update my blog site. 2021 / 2022 could turn in to an interesting year. Where the UK system fails, lets see if India can come to my aid. Just need to wait for my Covid vaccine.
I have posted some PDF files from two medical establishments in India on the site www.philengland.com/health that you can look at to see where I got the amount I am asking for donations for. I may need more, so I do hope you can help.
A bit about My Life with Ankylosing Spondylitis
I have been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis, it's a horrible thing to suffer with, it can really knock me down.
I've been trying to raise awareness on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Not many people seem to know about it, as it is not really visible.
I can tell you that suffering with Ankylosing Spondylitis has an impact on my mental health.
I suffer with anxiety and depression, and keep beating myself up about my physical limits.
Thank you for your time -xxx-
