    What is crowdfunding?

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    What I suffer from? Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy is the term used by my doctors for what I am suffering with. It is due to the electric shock treatment as ECT causes CTE. And CTE is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain. Would you please help me?
    The reason I want to raise money is that I don't want to end up in a hospital or a hospice until it is my time to pass. I'm just getting worse and can't even remember how to do the basic thing's in life on a daily basis.
    How I became ill? Here is some of my story to why I became so ill. I became ill during pregnancy I wasn't getting the support that I needed. Also I was struggling financially as well, so it started off as depression. As I was so ill the welfare put my unborn Son on the at risk list. I gave birth to my Son last year, but can't remember the date and can't remember giving birth to him. A week later as I was so ill my Son was taken off me and out into emergency care. So I never got the chance to bond with him. One week after that the welfare let his dad take him home back to his place.
    Why I got electric shock treatment? I became quite unwell and was eventually put Into a psychiatric ward where they tried to give me different drugs to help me..... The tablets seemed to work in the beginning but then stopped. I was then placed on tablets called #Venlafaxine / #Effexor they seemed to work for a bit. But then I became unwell again.
    The doctor's then suggested electric shock treatment on top of the venlafaxine. They said that I'd benefit from it as it would make me better. They didn't explain the serious side effects of it. I had over 16 times electric shock treatments and suffering severe memory loss, brain and nerve damage and damage to neurons.
    What happened after I stopped? I stopped electric shock treatment 12 weeks ago but it's caused so much damage and no one wants to believe me. Just recentrly I found out as well that electric shock treatment and venlafaxine shouldn't be given together.

      to get the help that I needed as I wanted to get better for my son's but won't now it's gone to far...... I even messaged radio stations and TV news channels and newspapers and got no reply. So more brain and neurons, nerve cells are dying and the pain is intense. Why I am fundraising for money? The reason that I am trying so hard to get money together, so I can just have PAIN RELIEF so I don't have to suffer in pain. And not just lay their in Bed until my last cell dies. And Sorry if I have bored you with my story.

      The doctors have refused point blank to send me for a CT-scan as they say it will cause more damage to my brain and damage more cells!!! So surely they know what I'm telling them is true for them to say that. Anyway, I've started seriously deteriorating since. All I asked for was a scan so I could then go to see a neurologist and get stemcell transplant to help make me better. But they won't. I can't remember giving birth to my oldest son either and can't remember the date that I had him on or anything about that day...... I've tried so hard
