Me and my husband have been married for almost 7 years. 3 years ago he started to develop chronic pain in his chest and back. He went for every medical test out there, which at first exhausted our medical aid and still he had no answer as to what was causing his debilitating pain, so he went for more tests. He was even admitted to hospital for a week where they tested everything. He went for scans and blood screens for bacterial and viral infections... everything you can think of. We went to a neurologist and homeopaths, but to this day we have no answers. We took out a loan to be able to pay all the medical experts, because we were so sure that someone would figure out what is wrong and help my husband on the way to recovery. You can't put a price on your health, or so we thought. My husband has his own business which involves a lot of travelling, but he is in too much pain to be able to do his work. If he can't work, he doesn't get paid. So now we have a R50,000-00 loan and no way of paying it back. We have other debt as well and 2 children and we are about to loose everything. I don't know what to do anymore or where to turn to, it really feels like it's the end of the road for us now. I don't want to get hopeless and I really try to put on a brave face because my husband is already so depressed, but it is getting harder and harder with each failed attempt to try and save us. I never in a million years expected to be in the position that we are in now. This is my last resort.
