Hi everyone! I dunno how or where to start but I am here bcos a friend of mine told me you guys might be able to help me :) I dont like to expect anything but I believe it doesnt hurt if I try my luck here, so here goes:
I'm Genesis James Paloma and I'm 25 years old and I recently got diagnosed with RHD or Rheumatic Heart Disease last September 24. I am trying to get any kind of help I could.
Since January this year I have not been well and have been in and out of the hospital many times and have gone to different kinds of tests but the technology in my country is very far behind so it is not surprising that they were only able to diagnose me with Mild Mitral Regurgitation and just this September; with RHD. But I know deep in my heart (in literal sense) that I am suffering with something much worse because my body is simply in pain everyday. But I dont have much choice, I live in a 3rd world country and in poverty.
Anyway, despite my disabling health I have refused to just give up and let it take away my dreams. I wanted to work to at least have an income to afford my continuous medication. And I did so. I had lead generation projects earlier this year but unfortunately did not last. For the most part of this year, my mother who also has Bronchitis has to work and take care of me, for that I am mostly thankful.
However, on October 21st I had to move out to my father's. Which is where I am now, away from my mother and my siblings. So now I have no one to take care of me or anyone to rely on. I have never felt so alone and to be honest frustration and depression is consuming me everyday.
But inspite of all of this, I refuse to take the easy way out. I still wanted to live. I still want to make the most out of my life. So even without a laptop of my own, I went outside and went looking for cafes so I could get online and started looking for a job. I needed money to sustain my medication. For a week or so I kept this up until finally I was able to find one. A lead generation job. Everything was already set and I could start working right away except that I dont have my own laptop neither are the cafes open for 24/7. Now I asked the client to give me 3 days to sort this problem and 3 days I spent looking for anyone who could loan me money or lend me a laptop and unfortunately could not find anyone, so the client had to let me go.
So till now I am still jobless and income-less. I have to practically beg everyone on my facebook friendlist to lend me money just so I could continue my prescribed antibiotic for my RHD. It's really tough and embarrassing but I've got no one and nowhere else to go. To make things worse, for the last 3 weeks the city was declared under State of Calamity due to three magnitude 6 earthquakes that hit us within 2 weeks. A lot of establishments were destroyed or closed so no one is hiring.
Right now, I only have 50 pesos in my pocket, 1 isoptin verapamil, 3 aspirins and no more antibiotic. My next checkup with my doctor was supposed to be on Oct 31, I'm already 10 days late cos I just cant afford it anymore. I dont know where else I'm gonna go once my meds run out, even if I had the money I still wont be able to buy another rounds of antibiotic until im given a new prescription.
So either you guys help me buy my own laptop or help me pay with my checkup and medication, any amount of donation would really help me a lot and would definitely help me live longer. A laptop would help set me out for a job but medication also means I wont be worrying when will I be able to take my next medicine.
I am hoping, with your donation, I'll be able to go see a cardiologist doctor by monday and buy needed prescriptions.
Thanks a lot for taking the time to read. God bless us all!
