My son is 11yr old, and has severe hypermobility syndrome where his shoulders and hip dislocates. He also has severe anxiety, a phobia of outside, learning disabilities and other problems including on the autistic spectrum And incontinence. He refuses to socialise in the outside world because of his fear which is made worse by public transport, noise and crowds. This means getting him to hospital appointments and school is a huge trigger. It also makes getting him out of the house for days out difficult. I am now trying to raise funds to get a car, to reduce the stress he is placed under. . I dont want to chance any old cheap one as i need to rush ben to hospital for ecg’s everytime he has palpatations and chest pain. I cant chance it breaking down on me the minute i get it. I too have my own disabilities, ranging from fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease and hypermobility syndrome and this would help me also but my son is the main reason. We cannot get a mobility car as he doesnt recieve the highest rate in mobility, only high rate care middle mobility, and being a single mum and carer, I cant afford to pay for a decent car.
i dont normally ask anyone for anything, ive helped myself all my life and helped others, never asking for anything back. But i dont know any other way.
Please please please help me help my child.
Thankyou from the bottom of my heart.
