This is the first time asking for help.
I am 39 years old woman, pharmacy technicians, coming from Serbia.
Working for years, I didn’t manage to create something mine. And that is pretty much normal here. So I live with my family, mother and brother. And No, I didn’t marry.
Bank loan I took, several years ago, was taken to readjust our home. It is around 540 sqft downstairs, and the attic is about 260 sqft with very low ceiling, that was reorganized into a sleeping room.We are trying to keep our home clean and normal how much is it in our power, of course…But home is collapsing. The roof has to change because is leaking on several spots, walls shoot on several places, furniture is very perished and old. Windows have to be changed, one door from the terrace cannot be closed properly, and that is the problem in fall and winter, another window is leaking when is raining, the glass of another window on the terrace is little cracked in a corner, the window on the attic barely opens and leaks. Kitchen elements are before decomposition….
Then, in March last year, I fell as I went to work, on the back, slipped on the ice. From the beginning, lots of time has been wasted, because doctors didn't believe me. Maybe because i didn't know to explain my troubles properly or I didn't complain too much. Until I went private and then had MR. Now I have bad spine injury (on L5-S1 and C5-C6) with nerve damages, myelopathy (and lots of G diagnosis) and a benign blood tumor in the small brain (but it’s benign,so I don’t worry about it) .I could not work for 6 months, then try to work hardly few months with breaks. Constant pain in whole body and other bad neurological problems are everyday. And they change during the same day. Some days are little better, some days are horror. But i am trying to be very positive despite all the problems, although I have periods when I feel completely lost in all this.Going to different doctors (mostly neurologist and neurosurgeons) and having diagnostic procedures (like magnetic resonance of spine and head, testing nerve damage…) cost a lot of money, so I had to take a loan from the bank, again. And it hasn't done over yet. Still, there is no solution for my health problem, surgery is a high risk (and I am afraid of). For now, my therapy was and is painkillers, vitamins B, Mg, alpha lipoic acid,physical therapy (wasn’t helped). Myelopathy is progressive and I can just slow her down. I hope. But medical and alternative treatments are expensive for me….especially because of debts and law salary. And I would not be able to afford any further re-examination, to see if there are any deterioration or maybe some things have been missed.
Worrying about my future…Bank debts, obligations are impossible to return (because of the new law of National Bank, I can not refinance debts and loans), home is collapsing, my job is uncertain (will I lose it, and how will I work in the future).
Maybe I did not get through life and problems…
I need help…
To resolve some problems, to get good therapy for my health. And, maybe for some education that will give me later a chance to find the job that will suit my health problems. Help me to reorganized my life… Help me and my family.
I apologize for grammatical errors, if there were any. I do not speak English well and I wrote all this with the help of Google translate. And I am sorry, if I was extensive or the opposite.
