hi my name is debbie and i am trying to raise money to replace my husbands treasured american fender guitar,that was his treasured possession for many a year.i became ill with fibromyalgia a debilitating condition Fibromyalgia, also called fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body. As well as widespread pain, people with fibromyalgia may also have: increased sensitivity to pain. fatigue (extreme tiredness) muscle stiffness.Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder which there is no cure for.i also have a number of other debilitating illnesses and take a lot of medication morphine tablets and morphine liquid are just 2 of my daily medications.i rely on my husband for almost everything i need to do he does it all with no complaining he just gets on with it.he gave up his own business to become my full time carer which meant losing a very good income,but not just the money he lost a lot more,people he thought were true friends stopped asking him to do things going out for a drink,just things people take for granted because a lot of the time he had to cancel because he had to help me,but he does it with no complaining.he goes out to a friends every friday for a practise session which he looks so forward too they have a jamming session because they have played at family and friends weddings and so on which he has done for all our married life,he finally managed to buy the guitar of his dreams an american fender he treasured it,but a couple of years ago he had to sell it because we needed the money urgently to have a stairlift fitted because i can no longer manage to get up the stairs .i cried the day he sold it,and felt so bad,but he never moans he just gets on with life.i have been trying to save up to buy him another fender guitar but just can not manage it.
i am asking for help to raise the money needed so i can give something back to my husband who i love so much.
