I have a dream to learn Tibetan in the Himalayas.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story, I hope that you will share my passion and help me to live my dream.
I’m a 59-year young woman and for the last 12 years have been on disability due to chronic illness called Fibromyalgia and CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). It means that I am in constant pain, never a minute or a second without it. To manage the pain, I channel my energies into helping others and self improvement. A constantly changing focus is important. One of the best ways to keep busy is to study and so I’m a student of languages and expanding my knowledge of the world. I speak French, Dutch, English, Spanish and have begun the difficult journey to learn Tibetan.
My biggest dream is to go and learn Tibetan in the Himalayas, where I could immerse myself in the Tibetan language and culture, discovering an all new world. There is a school available where for a full month I could live with the local people and study with them, managing my pain and enhancing my knowledge.
But why Tibetan? I am a practising Buddhist, something that also has disciplines that help my pain. Through Buddhism I have gained a number of Tibetan friends and my goal is, one day out of respect, to be able to converse with them in their own language.
Why am I asking for your help? Living on disability allows me to pay my medical bills little else. I will never be able to find the money to make my dream come true on my own and so I reach out to you for any little help that you can offer. In return I promise to do my utmost to succeed in my studies. As I don’t let Fibromyalgia beat me, I will not fail in this challenge with your support.
And so if you can’t support me financially please share my story and my campaign with your friends and contacts through your Facebook, Twitter, or other social media.
Please help me make my dream come true.
