Multiple Specialist services

I have been unable to work since 2015 when I needed an urgent aortic valve replacement which has already started leaking I was born with an undiagnosed heart murmur And Also developed a severe chronic form of Systemic Lupus (SLE) I am desperate for funds to support my quest for a return to reasonably good health. I need to see numerous specialists which include vascular surgeon due to having 2 total blood clots in my left leg during the last 3 mths . I need to see an upper gastro specialist due to having multiple gallstones & gallbladder removal which unfortunately resulted in a bile duct rupture in Oct 2017 from which I suffer gastrointestinal problems regulary requiring visits to the specialist , I need to have my INR checked  regulary due to being reliant on Warfarin (a blood thinner) which hopefully helps prevent blood clots, I see a Rheumatologist, haematologist, a Phsyciatrist & Phsycologist to help manage acute chromic depression, I have also recently been diagnosed with lung cancer& a benign degenerative bone disease. I suffer chronic pain on a daily basis due to SLE & fibromyalgia which is also an auto immune condition. I spent a majority of my working life at Centrelink but alas am unable to be granted a DSP due to that SLE is very unpredictable which they decided could not be used in my assessment because it can't be stabilised & this is a requirement for Centrelink Most of my medical problems stem from having SLE so therefore no Disability pension, I rent my home and have had to access  all of my Superannuation over the yrs due to extensive bouts of inability to work due to medical reasons to keep surviving, Some specialists bulk bill me occasionally but a lot require payment upfront which I really struggle to pay or not see the Dr at all. I only have my elderly parents who live four hrs away & are themselves quite ill, I just need a hand so I can get better treatment & not wait for months to see Drs because of no funds, I also need home help but do not qualify unless I pay for access because I dont get a Pension, I know I am lucky to still have my life but am only 52yrs old & would be so grateful to be able to live my life compared to just existing as I currently do, I also have another fight on my hands now due to the lung problem, I do not smoke, drink, take any illicit drugs and am trying hard to be positive with a very distressing situation. I have always lived my life trying to help others & would still like to contribute to the community in ways I am able. I truly worry what else life has in store but believe with a little help I can get treatment faster & more positively and hopefully be able to resume some hope for the future, with truly heartfelt thanks, Donna
