Story

hi, my name is fitz, im 22 and i live in south england. im a gay, trans non binary masc-adjacent person, and i have multiple severe health problems include ME, EDS, osteoarthritis and a potential autoimmune disorder as well as multiple mental illnesses. i rely on a number of aids to function, especially for movement. i live exclusively on government disability benefits as i cant work

i need a specialised set of crutches called smartcrutches, which spread weight across the flat of the forearms instead of into wrists and hands. with regular crutches the weight in my elbows causes such severe pain and damage to my elbows i have to take weeks long breaks to heal my arms. i have needed steroid injections twice

6 months ago my crutches were broken when i fell down the stairs, and several repairs have bwwn unsuccessful. replacing these will cost me 90£

i need a letter from my GP confirming the problems i face for my Personal Independence Payment (disability social security) reassessment. they confirmed this will cost me 35£

i have been recommended to find somewhere to receive gait testing and possible correctove treatment which i will need to access privately. a local clinic which seems most trustworthy has a consultation fee of 70£ and ongoing treatment costs, approximately 55£ per session

my knee brace requires new straps and and buckles. a maintenance kit for the model i own is 20£ brand new on ebay

i need new wrist braces, for both arms, that are stronger and better suited than my last pair. estimate this will be 20-30£ for two

i desperately need a new lumbar band, with a greater level of sturdy support, and this could cost anywhere from 45£ upwards

it might sound silly, but i usually need wheelchair/bicycle gloves to grip my canes or crutches, and the kind i tolerate best (im autistic and struggle immebsely with certain textures and sensations) cost 12£ per pair. this is a lot of money for me
