Life can be tough sometimes and sadly illness has effected my mobility. I'm looking to raise funds to purchase a refurbished powerchair to keep me mobile (see link). http://www.betterlifehealthcare.com/view/pre-owned-shoprider-sena-powerchair/9539/
Here's my story - I loved my job in the public services and work my way up in my career. Sadly 6 months after the birth of my beautiful daughter (now nearly 11) I was taken ill with weakness and heart problems. My condition has continued to deteriate. Sadly I lost my job 18 months ago on ill health grounds as they said they couldn't support me to remain at work.
My medical list is heart problems, asthma, pcos (lost my right ovary and tubes last year to it), lupus, fribomaylia, pots, balance issues, arthritis in my hips and wrists, scoliosis, back pain, stomach problems, swallowing issues, loss of bladder/bowel (awaiting spc in next 2 weeks) and full left side weakness/numbness. Plus awaiting confirmation of MS. However some hospital letters have confirmed I have it.
If you have any question please feel free to ask.
I appreciate the time you've taken to read my story and any support is greatfully received. Thank you so much in advance.
