Hi! I'm Julia Bridget Hayes. I can't absorb B12 and need alternate day injections to control permanent neurological damage I have from deficiency. These deplete my potassium. Normally I would simply reduce my injections for a couple of weeks to get it back up and be fine, but over the past few months both have fallen and it's incredibly difficult to get them back in balance. My neuro symptoms have worsened drastically to the point where I can barely walk and if I reduce my injections anymore I will go seriously downhill seriously fast. I'm between a rock and hard place.
After 5 years of struggling with these issues I have finally found a doctor who is able to help me. The potassium issue is worsened by underlying issues making it impossible for me to get my levels up and increase my injections again.
The problem is that none of my appointments or the specialised tests to pinpoint the underlying problem are covered by my insurance and I simply can't afford them. Appointments with the doctor are €120. The initial tests alone cost over €500.
I would greatly appreciate any help to cover my medical costs because at the moment my health problems are seriously affecting my ability to work and function.
