Travel Expenses

Hey there. I’ve prayed a lot about doing this or not and I feel like it’s time I let everyone know my health issues. I’m Kimberly Hirsch and I’ve been sick for 4 years not know what was wrong due to no medical  Insurance to see specialists so for three years I was in and out of ER and hospital with basically no results until September I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I have been unable to work  since March 30, 2017. I’ve had to move back to North Dakota to get medical aid but I so badly needed. I am now getting some answers and some results I started  Remicade infusion to help with the chronic Crohn’s disease. I am having to travel too Fargo from where I live which is 2 1/2 hours every other week for treatment.  I’ve had no income of any kind and have only made it this far due to my wonderful daughter and family. I’m asking even if it’s a small donation everything will help. I never understood what  crohn’s disease would do to my body but I’m here to tell you it has altered my life in ways I never imagined. I’m a 40-year-old woman who most days has the fight to get out of bed and function. It is one of the most painful experiences of my life and it’s hard for people to understand because I look  healthy if you just look at me and they don’t understand what’s going on inside of me. I never thought I would be going through this living hell by any means. I wish I could start a support group for everybody that is going through the same things in life.  And through the whole experience I have become a completely different person. I have become depressed and have anxiety issues due to the big unknown. I’ve always prided myself on being an independent woman but I also know everybody needs help and now I need help.  This is one of the hardest things that I’ve ever had to do I try to keep a positive attitude about the whole situation but it’s gotten to the point where I just need to let everyone know what’s going on with me. I have three beautiful children and  A amazing grandson that keep me going because often times I would just like to give up my flights getting harder to fight.  I know I need to get healthy and stay healthy for my kids and grandson and the rest of my family. I will be having the Remicade infusions every other week for now until we can get my body back  to a healthy state. I truly hope that this Remicade infusion is my answer to remission. The next step will be a  surgery to resection my digestive track which the likelihood of a permanent colostomy bag is very likely.  All donations are greatly appreciated and if I can help anyone  going through the same situation I am gladly here to help it is a very lonely place to be when nobody understands what’s going on because you look fine on the outside. I would just like to end this with thank you to everyone who has been there and who continues to be there for me it’s been a rough road and it’s going to get rougher before it gets better.
