    Story

    From a young age I have had difficulties in regards to mobility. I was born with club foot on both legs, a rare type of haemophilia, and I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia but i fear i may have more physical issues just to be diagnosed due to only starting the diagnostic process. I have gotten to a point of needing to rely on a cane most days in order to get by but sadly I feel like I need even more help in regards to mobility.

    I was recently hit by a bus whilst walking on the path, This incident has sadly made walking even harder for me- and whilst somedays I am able to walk, I cannot do so without the help of medicine, a friend caring for me, and with my cane there to fall back on.

    Currently my family aren't in a very stable financial situation which has made me unable to afford even a foldable wheelchair to help with my mobility. I feel terrible to rely on the help of others but I truly need this assistance right now. I usually feel too embarrassed using my cane as someone many people see as being 'too young' or 'healthy looking' based on their misjudgements on what a disabled person is. So the prospect of being in a chair and dealing with more scrutiny is terrifying to me but I need to put my health above the misguided opinions of some people.

    I would be so appreciative of any help at all, Thank you so much for reading this. I really appreciate that anyone would give me their time and patience to thank you very much

      I can't believe how kind people have been to me. Thank you so much for all the help. It turns out that my friends were also trying to get me a chair so I'm left with an issue with the money- There's so much excess since they've taken care of the chair so What should I do? Would it be okay to buy things for the chair and other aids?
