You all helped SO much in raising funds to send my Mum on a wellbeing retreat in India this February. So much so that it is all booked and she will be on her flight in a little over a month!! We are EVER so grateful.
Now, my Mum has been saving to put towards the activities, spending money and inevitable extras when going away. However unfortunately a few unavoidable, unexpected financial things popped up and she had to delve into those savings :(
So I have now had to come back to you to help complete this once in a lifetime experience for my Mum. Please share!!
My Mum suffers many physical and mental health issues. Has daily chronic pain , chronic exhaustion, can be confused and drowsy. Tracy can need support and takes a lot of medication. Dealing with all of this, alone, on holiday is daunting, stressful and unsafe.
Tracy has chronic depression, anxiety and mood disorders. She often feels scared, lonely, frustrated, hopeless and like giving up. Tracy NEEDS this, to save her mentally. Dissociative seizures, are aggressive and frightening. If she was able to heal they may stop. The mental health teams failed her and we have spent many a time convincing her that life is worth living and ending it does not have to be an option.
Our Mum is incredible; to go through hell, survive a brain infection and wake up everyday to suffering. YET smiles, laughs and is there for us. We were told that she probably won't make it. The next day she sat up and laughed!
She has no other close family, and few friends. She spends lots of time alone and struggles going out, and make friends. This would show that she is not alone.
Therapy include; art, reiki, reflexology, yoga and meditation. Plus visits to the town and beach. This trip has everything for Tracy to have a safe, rejuvenating, once in a lifetime trip. UK supported holidays, and are not much cheaper, and so makes sense to go all out and give our Mum the trip she deserves.
