Hello world. For those who don't know me, my name is Adriyel. I am a professional fairy, working as a sales minion for the fabulous Twig the Fairy, and bringing sparkly joy to children and adults. I am also a healer in the form of being a deep tissue massage therapist and reiki pracitcioner. I travel the country living and working at Renaissance Festivals, and enjoy living with the amazing community of fellow travelers that share in this lifestyle.
For many months now, since early Febuary 2013, I have been sick. I have a constant fever (around 2° above normal), and so far no cause has been found. Thankfully it has been deemed non-contageous, so I can at least continue to work without worrying about the safety of those around me. But work and life are still hard to manage when your brain has decided to become a zombie crockpot meal. On a good week I have just enough energy to work, with almost none leftover for fun. On a bad week, I do not have even the energy to work, though I do it anyway, and have no energy leftover to even make myself a healthy meal (or occasionally to eat at all, which is saying a lot for the foodie that I am!).
I have no insurance, and even with the help of the amazing organization called RESCU which exists in my community to help with such events, I am struggling greatly to afford medical testing and treatment. Currently there are no clues as to what may be causing this fever, and each test is a very expensive shot in the dark.
I do not like asking for help, and I like even less asking for money. But I need to get well. So I'm asking. Anything you can give will be appreciated immensely, and everything you give will be used to help me get well.
