Hello all! I'd like to start off with some information about me. My name is Jeremy Lim and I'm 21 years of age turning 22 this October. I suffer from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD) and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) for about 5 years.



I have decided to start this crowdfunding for my surgery. It is called Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for depression. Deep Brain Stimulation works like a pacemaker, but it’s used in the brain instead of in the heart. This technique requires surgically placing a small conductor, called an electrode, permanently in the brain. The electrode delivers a low level impulse that aids in regulating mood.



As shown above are the likely expenses and the documents. After having all the possible subsidies from my Medical Social Worker, Medisave and Medifund; I am still required to deliver an up-front deposit of $1000.



Deep Brain Stimulation for depression has never been done in Singapore as it is usually done for people with severe Parkinson's disease. For depression, the electrodes are placed at the mood-part of the brain instead of the usual movement-part of the brain as of Parkinson's.



Deep Brain Stimulation requires Ethic's Committee approval of which I have gotten after close to 5 months. You can help me get closer to this goal by Paylah!/Paynow @ 9473 7191 or by just helping me out by sharing this post. I am positive that i'll be better after having this procedure done. If all goes to plan; I am holding onto the hope of having the surgery be done on the 11 of April as the Operating Theatre has already been booked, otherwise, at early of May. This all depends on how soon I am able to financially sort everything out. Thank you so very much and I'll be sure to keep everything updated! :)
