I was Diagnosed with Potts Disease
(A Condition which is also called Tuberculosis of the Spine)
last 2017. Total Cost was around Php1,000,000+ on hospital expenses alone. I was bedridden for more than 2 years and was jobless for that amount of time. My mother was trying her best to support me the best she could even though she is 65 years old, has a hard time to walk and move about. I don't live with my father anymore and I have used up all my savings before I got sick.
Now, as I am getting better, we will need something in order to live our lives until I am able to get a sustainable job, be able to be able to move about normally buy ongoing antibiotics. We have asked help from relatives and friends but it is still not enough. I am doing my best to find a job to sustain our needs at the moment but my moms savings are slowly depleting. As of now, she only has $100 USD in her account and it's not enough even for utilities. Meds alone are approximately $50 USD a week and our utilities and rent cost approximately $200 USD/month. We just need to survive until things get better.
