Eric had back surgery in January 19, 2016 that turned his life into survival accompanied by excruciating pain 24/7. Surgery that was suppose to restore his back and help to live pain free turned out horribly wrong. Now his back has more injuries than before, in addition due to damaged in surgery nerves are creating new problems in legs. His right leg doesnt have reflex up to it's knee, muscles are misfiring, twitching and cramping all the time, even when he is asleep. From constantly overwhelmed muscles legs are getting bruised up and its all accompaned by severe pain that never ends. 2 months ago Eric had to start using a cane to walk. His life became never ending battle with severe pain, depression and continues worsening condition of his lower back and both legs. Aftrr several painful shots in the spine, nerve tests, CAT scan and MRIs, various doctors' opinions and not being able to work and earn money left him in bad physical condition and completely financially broke. Social Security office denied him disability benefits every time we applied, he doesn't qualify for Medicaid for simple but ridiculous reason - single male with no children. American government, that promises to support every person in need, failed to help, family can support with not very much money for food. Medical bills, utilities and all other expenses are piling up, he struggles to find money for every day needs including medications that are nessesery to keep him functioning physically and mentally. He is very depressed from the nightmare that happening with him for last 14 months. He cannot walk more than 5 min without bursting pain. Even tasks as easy as cooking meal or taking a shower that requires just standing straight!!! turns into a torture and ends in tearing pain and suffering for hours. Medications at most do not ease the pain. He can't sleep, can barely move, struggling physically to take care of self, his 2 dogs and the house. He needs financial help for food, to pay rent and utilities, insurance, doctors, medications, gas, for household items, for dogs and, how ironic, to pay bills from the surgery that turned his life into a nightmare. He used to have very active life style, pretty tough jobs that requires certain physical strength, his life passion is a disc golf which is also physically challenging and very active. He used to go fishing with his dad a lot but now all these activities are like a unreachable dream. Now he is physically miserable, mentally broken and its getting harder and harder to get bills paid and have food on the table. Now his only hope that all his friends, colleagues and family will team up to help financially and support with a kind word and a prayer. He needs all and any help we can get.
