بإختصار ، هذي 'قطيه' خاصه لي لتعديل أموري من العلاج دراسه سياره إلخ. الي يبي تفاصيل أكثر، الرجاء قراءة باقي المعلومات بالأسفل قبل مراسلتي لعدم الحراج

CAMPAIGN DETAILS:

I'm at a critical point where I can merely exist, or attempt to have a real life. The undeniable truth is that I’m stuck, I have been for years and I can’t get out of this alone. Temporary band-aids are just that. I also came to the realization, if one falls & can't stand up is ok to be helped up.

The only path I didn’t take was officially asking for help. My friends’ unconditional love, patience & support through my hardest times inspired me. It gave me the courage to do this. I wholeheartedly believe it’s ok not to be ok, there is no shame in it, nor in expressing it. Therefore, I need to walk my talk so to speak. I don’t want to put people in an awkward position, my friendship is unconditional, I can't bear the thought of breaking my friends' hearts if I ask & they can't help, let alone be rejected. I've lost too much as is.

So... for my 1st ever and hopefully last campaign, I’m asking for people to invest in me personally, so I can start over with a true fighting chance. My Target amount is approximately 3,800KD (I'm not exactly sure) which will be used for:

Medical: Physical rehabilitation and treatments. (starting with getting a professional second opinion confirming my diagnosis. So far the consensus is either Fibromyalgia as an opinion from several doctors or one official diagnosis of Degenerative Arthritis by a Rheumatology Specialist, the rest have no idea. Unfortunately it's a process of elimination & progress is very slow)

Education (A modest diploma to start, since I only have a high school degree & some outdated basic training courses this is essential).

Essential expenses & Sustenance. (Including gov't fees etc...)

Transportation maintenance & other related expenses to ensure their reliability. (Storm is down for the count, this will be for the daily)

All the above has been calculated to cover the first segment of allocated time during which I can focus completely on acquiring the diploma & completing the major phases of tests, physical rehab & treatments. etc..

Hopefully that will help me gain the ability to do the rest of the work myself.

If you are a medical doctor (specifically ENT, Rheumatology, Neurology, Maxillofacial Surgeon), certified physiotherapist, pain management trainer, CBT professional, psychotherapist, Gym owner/manager, clinic/lab owner/manager, & would like to donate your professional services/advise/consult instead of money, I need all the help I can get, I would be eternally grateful.

If you cannot help either with your services or financially, please pray for me, wish me well, or at least leave me alone. A prayer, well wishes or a kind word of support does help more than you can imagine.

I'm willing to earn my keep in exchange for your donation (within legal moral & ethical boundaries ONLY). My integrity is everything. But my abilities are limited due to my health issues I am unable to work full time at a set schedule since the pain is random and the flare ups are sometimes debilitating. If that is acceptable, please send me an email requesting my resume, I will be happy to oblige. [email protected]

Pulling this off may not be easy, but it is 100% possible, IF, & ONLY IF, I have proper support & correct tools which are not available to me. Fortunately, my pros outnumber my cons threefold which in & of itself is empowering.

I’m not a victim, this is not a hand out. I have raw potential; I refuse to see it wasted further. My true target is to walk away from the noxious toxicity surrounding me, excising its venomous grip from my life, recover my health to where I can perform normal activities unhindered & have enough stability to have a career or (preferably) start my own businesses. Even in my diminished state, I have been an active contributing member of society and still fighting for the causes I believe in. At the moment I would settle for having a better quality of life at the very least the ability to do basic tasks without needing assistance.

I don't only want to succeed for myself, I want to use my resulting abilities to make a real difference. Mainly raising awareness & breaking the stigma surrounding mental health (via my 'Be Blue' dream event & such), As well as raising awareness & support for women in technical fields, motorsport & the automotive world. Leading by example & officially starting my all-inclusive (gender/race/age/religion) car club which will collaborate with the community as a whole to unite educate & create tangible impacts moving us forward to an equitable structure while having fun. A safe space to be who you are, encouraging more tolerance and respect. Basically, the overdue social evolution. I am a force of nature, this is very doable, at the very least I want the chance to try. (Side note: If you would consider sponsoring my events, please don't hesitate to email me, I would be elated!)

I love helping others, but this time I'm the one who needs help. I stopped feeling guilty for being ‘selfish’ (mostly). Others may be (and are) in worse situations, but this isn’t about them, this is about me & I have finally accepted that. I need to put the oxygen mask on first. I deserve better.

Kindly keep in mind, I am not making excuses; I am not complaining. I'm not explaining, I’m merely giving you some background & data for context. I'm not ashamed of my limitations or my situation, it's a fact of my life. Yes, I’ve already tried absolutely everything to the best of my ability but it has only ever been enough to survive. Integrity is everything to me that will never be compromised no matter the price. I’m highly intelligent & very resourceful, some things are what they are, denial won’t change facts (Please respect that, this is a request for financial support, not judgement or unsolicited advice). Also, this is the most I'm comfortable sharing regarding my personal situation. I abhor the use of emotional blackmail, extortion, exploitation or other distasteful jarring tactics to advance any cause let alone my own, even if it is true.

Sadly, my best is not moving me forward, I’m also at a disadvantage, especially in my current situation (in many aspects of my private life). Honestly, I have nothing left to lose, time is not on my side anymore, I've reached that critical point (it's terrifying), the final push is overdue. It breaks my heart, but the fact is even a warrior has limits.

I've come this far; I've survived where very few didn't who just went through a tiny fraction. I don't have the heart to give up. I didn’t get this far just to get this far, therefore I've decided to choose to fight one last time, will you choose to help me up?

Thank you for taking the time to read this all! God bless you for that, whether you contribute or not :) Being heard in its own makes all the difference in the world.

What has happened so far...

Update posted by Dana A at 04:44 am

Thanks to some offline, in person help over the past few years from a few wonderful angels... I got the daily sorted out among other things & a functional phone so I can continue freelancing & figuring out the diagnosis a bit at a time for now. Their assistance hasn't. . . . .
