Hi everybody and thank you for reading my bio!
I’m Daniel,I’m 32 and I’m from Romania.
I used to be a regular guy with strong future plans ,focused by excelling in my job and starting a family, having a nice house with a porch and stuff like that.I loved sports and one of my many goals was to add value to everything I touch.
This was Daniel from 2 years ago…
Everything changed in November 2017 when I have been diagnosed with cervical herniated disc.This condition affected pretty bad my right hand nerves , almost impossible to use it for a couple of months. My mobility was also affected because of the pain, spending most of my time in bed, wearing a medical collar, being unable to work…My world and my plans had collapsed under my unbearable pain.
I tried all the treatments and procedures available in my country, hoping I will defeat this condition without going to surgery. I was so scared by surgery risk of being paralyzed from my neck down that I chose to live with this constant pain…and everything was bearable until 2 weeks ago.
Now,that horrible pain is back and painkillers doesn’t work anymore, my hand muscles atrophies very fast, getting harder to use my hand. I have days when I’m not able to work,or even get up from bed.
Looking backwards,I regret I did’t take that surgery 2 years ago. This condition affected very much my life. I was so focused on my cervical spine problem and my pains that I forgot my plans, I forgot to live and to enjoy moments and persons in my life. My past two years just happened in the background of my pain…
So now, I’m mentally prepared for my surgery, I’m ready to take the risks because living like this is not living, is surviving,trust me. Unfortunately , another problem occurred. In Romania,the medical system is very weak and they do not have founds for my surgery, even though I’m a citizen who pays taxes and insurance for almost 15 years. I have to wait at least 3 months and hope my surgery budget will be founded. The longer I wait, the grater the risk of not being able to move my hand anymore, ever.
Here is the part when I’m asking for your help. I can get my surgery faster to a private hospital, but the cost exceeds my financial resources. I also can not get a loan because I got one for the two years treatments and procedures, my family and friend also have not a good financial situation. So,you guys are my only hope to recover my life and get rid of this pains and insecurity.
I will be forever grateful to you all and even though, probably we don’t know each other, I assure you guys, are a great part of my life and I will always cherish you.
