Dear Friends,

Asking for help is the most difficult thing for me to do.

The head trauma I’ve suffered has turned my life upside-down. I am lucky to have some good days when I am able to breathe with less effort, do some grocery shopping or light work, and have a conversation. But more often than not my brain and body are too exhausted and I struggle with the most basic functions. I’ll try to have a drink of water and end up dropping the cup because my fingers can’t grasp properly. I’ll bump into people while walking because I am unable to fully control the direction of my movements. I have to stop speaking mid-sentence because I have trouble forming the words. Thinking is painful work and reading is excruciating. I black out far too often and it is frightening when I feel myself losing consciousness and am unable to do anything about it. It is terrifying when, while walking in the street, I suddenly forget where I am and what I am doing there. And then there is the constant and extreme exhaustion that won’t go away no matter what I do.

The specialists I have met with are hopeful and, with the proper treatments, a complete recovery is expected. However, as with most specialists, the treatments are very expensive and insurance will not reimburse. At this point I have nothing left to pay for it.

Asking for help is extremely humiliating and humbling, but I haven’t been able to find another way. Please help by donating and/or sharing the link below with others who may be able to help.

My heartfelt thanks and appreciation.
