Woman Disabled By Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Seeks Debt Relief
(Gardnerville, NV, USA)
Eleven years ago, I was disabled with a debilitating and degenerative neurological disease called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. Now I'm disabled by debt and I need relief.
I have been sick more than half my three children's lives and it breaks my heart.
It's mostly invisible, so to look at me you would think I looked okay, but didn't have the best balance, get fatigued way too easily and might even think my faculties are questionable.
It's because this disease manifests in so many ways, from myoclonic jerks and dystonia, to lesions, severe burning and stabbing pain. In fact it rated TWICE the pain of Stage 4 cancer! Yet no one knows about it.
I have wiped out my life savings on medical bills, have had to sell personal items and basically only have the roof over my head. I don't want to lose that, yet I am at a loss of what to do.
My home needs repairs. I live in Nevada, where the foreclosure market is very bad. I'm scared to death and the stress is only making me sicker.
I have always given to my community, by mentoring, helping the elderly, and giving to those less fortunate. I need hep now and do not know how to get it?
Doors are constantly shut in my face, my mortgage company keeps putting off my modification, and I am destitute. What do I do now? I want to stay in my home. It's all I have!
I have done everything right my whole life, and now I feel frustrated and scared! I'm alone, and have no one. My husband left the night before my first brain surgery 10 years ago. I have had 23 other surgeries since then.
I'm a fighter. I want to fight, but I don't know how to fight the system! Please fight this fight with me!!! Kindly, Mimi.
