Waking up Bizzare - Adamsons
Dear Friends - as I lie awake for my ninth night with barely 10 hours sleep total I see the reality in my family's dire need. Just 2 weeks ago I was working a career in construction and running my all boy household when I woke up to the Bizzare. My body was wasting away losing 25lbs in less than a month. Unable to sleep, I couldn't drive. I called in to work. My husband took me to emergency room twice where a battery of tests lead to nothing. I'm a thyroid patient and my medication was no longer working. Unable to pinpoint the cause I was told to find a Dr. When I was finally able to get in, he gave me 3 specialist referrals and took me off work for 4 weeks. No mention of how I was going to support my family as we traveled down this road, thats what tbe specialist are for he said. My husband and Son and I pay the bills, so this is absolutely devastating financially. Each Dr. Referral requires my husband to take off work and puts us further behind for rent, food and necessities like electricity and gas. Each appt is weeks out, plus testing. We are crushed as a family, my school aged children scared of what this means. It's Christmas and there is no shopping for gifts, only the hope that somehow rent and utilities will be paid. I long for sleep and getting back to my reality where housing was given and food was in the fridge. Dear Friends would you help us? I suspect adrenal insufficiency, diabetes or insulin resistance and now anxiety as look to a future of uncertainty. The money raised here would pay our rent 1700.00 a month. Our insurance premium is about the same, plus car insurance, monthly food. electricity and gas. Plus medical bills. I'm guessing at a number raised as I can only hope a cause presents itself quickly and we can begin the process of what it will take to get me well. In the downturned economy I worked 3 jobs supporting our family while my husbands construction Industry dwindled out. I just want my life back and I don't want to worry if we'll be on the streets next month. Any amount is appreciated and prayers! Lots of prayer please. Did I mention how humbling this is? Very. Any input regarding my condition is also appreciated. I'm nauseous, dizzy, sleep deprived, dehydrated, anxious, weak, insomnia, air hunger and tired. I had blood work and saliva testing done Friday and Monday. As we wait for those results we anticipate another specialist to see. I'll update as I can. 1st picture was my eldest sons birthday just this November and the other 2 are of Mothers Day 2016. I'll spare you all one of me now on the couch sleep deprived, it's really awful. Much love to you all. Bridget
The next specialist isn't available till February, so that's not gonna work. I'm going to have to cast further away to see if I can find a doctor that's willing to help. A friend sent me a name. I'm so grateful. I'm calling tomorrow. Please continue to pray, I need to sleep through the night. God Bless you guys for donating, praying and sharing, it's my lifeline.
